My Vintage Barbies

>> Sunday, February 21

Growing up as a kid in the Philippines, I did not own a Barbie. My parents gave me a pseudo-Barbie one year for Christmas but it was not the same. She was cute, she was flexible and she had those tiny shoes. But she was not a Barbie. The same year, my brother got a G.I. Joe doll. I would play "dating" games using both of them. My play refrigerator became my doll's closet.
Not that my parents did not want me to have a Barbie, but they were very expensive at that time and imported to boot.
As I got older, I fulfilled my Barbie cravings with several Barbie dolls I had collected. Among them are these ornately dressed collectible Christmas Barbies. I might sell them soon. I have two boys who have absolutely no interest in them. Should I wait until the possibility that I may have a grandchild who might like Barbies? It will be a very very long wait!
