Forgot how much fun it was to play with Barbie

I too had an original Bubble Barbie from 1962. She was stored in my attic before I was married and I brought her along with her clothes to my home 26 years ago. Unfortunately, her face paint completely wore off! When I looked into getting her repaired I realized it would cost way too much because her ears were also green. I had many of her clothes and accessories in very good shape so I purchased a beautiful Titan Barbie bubble head from 1962. I'm having a wonderful time looking through all her clothes and accessories and adding a thing here and there from ebay to complete the outfits. Your site is most helpful to see what constitutes a complete outfit. Thanks so much. P.S. In 4 weeks, I've spent over $400 on barbie...I'm doing my part for the economy (lol).

Thank you for sharing Donna -
I don't know what it is, but there is nothing like the thrill of rediscovering Barbie. I will never forget the feeling I had when I held my first vintage Barbie doll in my hands!
