The yellow version of Sweet Dreams is much more common, while the pink set is hard to find. The blue satin ribbon had a gold metal loop and attached to Barbie’s ponytail and is also rare. Frequently, the elastic in the bloomer style panties is stretched out or disintegrated. The blue shoes are usually found without the pompons. Replacement pompons can be purchased at a craft store and are easy to glue on the shoe. The “diary” is a piece of cardboard covered in green and is available today.
