My Vintage Barbies
About this Site
Barbie started with me back in 1964 when I got my very first Skipper Barbie Doll. Then I acquired a Bubble Cut Barbie and Midge, followed by Skooter, Ricky, Ken, and Francie. In 1967, I was one of the lucky girls who participated in Mattel’s promotion. I traded in one of my old dolls along with $1.50 and received a brand-new mod chocolate bon bon Twist 'n Turn Barbie.
  
Barbie was my very favorite pastime as a child. I can still recall being embarrassed because I seemed to play with Barbie dolls longer than my friends. I also remember standing in the toy department (more than once) dreaming about Barbie’s amazing outfits. The one that especially stood out was Solo in the Spotlight. Once I started collecting, it was one of the first outfits I acquired.

I love all the tech stuff, so it only seemed logical for me to build a website. I wanted the site to be a wealth of information on every doll from the vintage era, as well as a valuable reference tool. And as a bonus, I had another place to share my entire Barbie collection! As time went on, the site grew to include much more than just dolls from the vintage era.

In November 2021, I released My Vintage Barbies (the book). It was a year in the making, and I'm very pleased with it. I hope you all enjoy it as well.

Thank you so much for stopping by, and happy collecting!
