Barbie is 50!


Happy 50th Birthday, Barbie! Lots of celebrations occurring. Apparently, for Barbie's 50th birthday Mattel is selling a bathing suit Barbie doll for only $3 this week - the original price of the first Barbie in 1959! Good luck finding one though. Seems they are all sold out everywhere. How did I miss that one? Were you lucky enough to snatch one up?

My preschool daughter can't quite understand how Barbie can be having a birthday. When I told her about it she said, "What do you mean? Barbie can't talk. She can't blow out candles!"

And, really no big surprise, like everyone that is hip and cool, Barbie even has her own blog! Catch up with the latest Barbie happenings there. http://alldolldup.typepad.com/

Barbie has her own blog? I am so going to have to check that one out. Hilarious!

I also love how your daughter just couldn't believe that Barbie is having a birthday. Who can blame her? I can't imagine the amount of work Barbie's needed to keep her appearance the way it is at 50! :)

Happy Birthday Barbie! Gosh, how I loved all my barbies and all the cool accessories that came along with her. I hope my little one will love Barbie as much as I did.
