February Meeting

Our meeting will be on the 25th, at the Condo Event Room (if you aren’t sure where that is, just contact us and ask!), with the meeting starting at 1:30pm, so please arrive before then!

It’s the season for love, and for this month’s meeting, we would love for you to bring in some “Famous Couples” dolls for show and tell. Barbie and Ken? Or maybe the more notorious, and controversial, Barbie and Blaine? Or what about Edward and Bella? Beauty and the Beast? Any famous couple dolls, bring them in so we can share the love.

Monster High Howliday Clawdeen

Monster High is back with another Howliday edition ghoul, and it’s a beautiful purple haired Clawdeen. She seems to be celebrating Winter Solstice, and has a phase of the moon themed crown to go along with it, and even features some crescent moons on her shoes. She’s clearly out to reign over the night time howliday festivities!

 

Mariah Carey Barbie

As of this past Thursday, Mattel has officially released its Mariah Carey holiday Barbie for sale. She’s wearing a gown replicating one the singer has worn, and even features a silver butterfly ring on her hand. What do you think, do you need this Mariah Carey doll for your collection?


 

November Meeting

Our November 26th meeting is now also doubling as our Happy Holidays party, due to a scheduling conflict with our previous plans for December. We’re now having a potluck at our meeting, so be sure to RSVP with Lucy, and let us know you’re coming, and if you’re bringing a guest. Please refer to our newsletter for information about bringing a gift of some sort. So come on, be festive, dress festive, and be all sorts of merry at our happy holidays party!

 

Still bring your aliens show and tell items, along with any holiday themed show and tell. We can’t wait to see what you show off!

 

November 26th, at the Condo Event Room (if you aren’t sure where that is, just ask!), and you can arrive for 1pm!

Barbie Movie Dolls, Wave 2

You thought there were enough Barbie Movie dolls already? Think again! There is a second wave coming, around the beginning of August. This new set of dolls will include Ken in his fur coat, along with his western look, and even one of him in his white and gold tracksuit. Barbie in her pink jumpsuit. And you guessed it, the “weird” Barbie, which they’re calling Play Hard. It looks like there will also be another Mattel Creations Exclusive doll, and from the outline teasing the image, it looks like it could be another doll of Kate McKinnon, but that’s just a possibility. And you know the collection wouldn’t be complete without the rollerblading Barbie and Ken (sold separately).

Holiday Barbie 2023

 

The official Holiday Barbie for 2023 has been unveiled, and is already available now. It seems there are four different dolls, and some type of fifth exclusive one, that has yet to be revealed. I’ll keep you updated when more information pops up about her.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Barbie Movie Dolls & Accessories

In addition to all the previously mentioned Barbie Movie dolls, there’s another Mattel Creations exclusive doll, and a fashion pack for Barbie. Not to mention the two options for Barbie’s car, one of which is a remote controlled car!

Corvette 1

This car seats four dolls, though the back seat can be a little tight from what others have said. The trunk also opens.

 

Hot Wheels Corvette 2 (Remote Controlled)

The RC car only fits 2 dolls, and is a collaborative Barbie and Hot Wheels toy. So the choice is your’s…possibly more detail, and fits four dolls for the normal car…or one you can have a little fun with, and actually “drive”. Come on adult collectors, you know you want to!

 

 

Barbie Movie Barbies

Life in plastic, it’s fantastic! The Barbie Movie dolls have been released, and they feature characters and fashions from the movie. There has already been a little bit of controversy among collectors, who were not a fan of Barbie’s bangs. However, in all honesty…the bangs are cute, but I’d advise getting that particular doll in store (Toys R Us, Walmart), in person, as opposed to online, so you can choose one with bangs you feel look good, because some can sit a little off.

Barbie x Aldo

The Barbie ♥ Aldo collab is here, and selling out fast. From my understanding, it sold so fast they will be restocking items, so if you’re wanting something that’s out of stock, keep checking back, and you might get lucky. If you are someone who has always loved Barbie’s shoes, or maybe just love shoes and accessories…this collab is for you. There’s multiple styles of shoes, some handbags, jewelry, and even some sparkly pink sunglasses! Anyone else wishing they could own the whole collection? ♥

Check out the full collection on the Aldo website HERE. Don’t say I didn’t warn you, if you end up doing some unexpected shopping…

Thr Barbie Movie

 

The movie is officially out today! Who will be going to see it? Or were you too anxious to wait, and went to see it yesterday, like some of the club did?

Fun fact, if you Google Barbie or Barbie Movie today, something magically pink will happen! Try it out!
