February Birthstone Barbies


Happy February!  
Two Barbie lines I've been collecting over the past year are the Barbie Birthstone Collection Collectible dolls (released in 2002) and the Barbie Birthstone Beauties (released in 2007).    I did a post last year showing my January dolls, so this month, I wanted to showcase my February dolls. 

The first one is the gorgeous Birthstone Collection - February Amethyst doll from 2002. 

She is simply beautiful.  I chose the AA version because she was my favorite of the three choices and I think this purple shade looks so pretty with her skin tone. 

Here are the other two versions:

I also have the AA version of the Barbie Birthstone Beauty - Miss Amethyst as well. 

She's gorgeous as well; I don't ever use the word "bae" in real life, (except to annoy my preteen daughters lol), but the Steffie mold, in my eyes is my bae in terms of vintage faces! 

I love how they look together.  Even though they are two different doll lines, I think they go well with each other.  Perfectly purple. 

Up to that point, here are all of the ones I had collected.  

I also had the lighter skinned Birthstone Beauty doll that I found at a flea market and after I cleaned her up, she looked just as pretty as the other two! 

Goddess face mold. 

These two have the Steffie face mold.  I love how different they both look even though it's the same facial sculpt! 

This line has been so much fun to collect.  I've just been going slowly, collecting about 1 per month as they can be quite pricy on eBay.  I hope to continue to share them all on the blog each month! 

What is your birthstone??  Mine is March/aquamarine :)

Happy Valentine's Day! Valentine Barbie 1997


Happy Valentine's Day!

Today I wanted to share my Valentine Barbie from 1997 that I recently purchased from eBay earlier this month.  This is the first Valentine themed Barbie I have in my collection! 

She comes in a very simple slim line box without very many decorative elements.  On the back of the box are two cutout Valentines to keep in your collection or share with a friend. (They poems are pretty cut and dry, lol.) 

Out of the box, she comes with the doll, a brush and a little heart-shaped box of chocolates. (No stand included.)  She's on the twist n' turn body with the 90 degree arms and bend and click knees. 

Her dress is a pretty pattern of purple, red, pink and silver hearts.  She has a net-like fabric for the top of her dress and a purple ribbon bow placed to the side of her hip.  

Her hair looks amazing right out of the box!  It's straight and shiny with no glue or sticky texture at all. 

She has a matching ribbon headband and pink "pearl" earrings with a matching ring.  I love it when dolls come with earrings and rings! 

She has those Barbie pumps we all know and love; this time in a lovely shade of hot pink. 

Here's a close up look at her beautifully molded box of chocolates! 

She has the Christie face mold with brown eyes (with a pink accent!) and soft red lips.  

She is absolutely adorable!  I can't believe how much I love this beautiful doll.  I am really starting to love and appreciate Barbie's from the 90s and early 2000s.  They're just so well made and their clothing and accessories just don't compare to what we have nowadays.  I will cherish her!

I hope you guys are doing well and enjoyed this review. 

Best wishes for a very Happy Valentine's Day filled with love, hope and happiness. 

See you soon!
