Thanks for the memories...

by Linda

I'm not a doll collector, but I was an only child and taught to "take good care of things". My dolls are played with, but in good condition. So when I grew out of them, I packed them into boxes to save for my daughter someday. I have a son now... I came across the dolls while moving and started wondering their worth. I remembered Francie's name, but not the name of my Kiddle. Nor any of the names of their outfits and accessories. Anyway, I am so grateful for this site as I was able to identify my kiddle as Pretty Parlor and her "snap happy" furniture. They are probably not worth much, (although I've seen them on e-bay for $35 to $145). I think I'll just keep them. They are worth more to me as a keepsake than the money would be. And, maybe I'll have a granddaughter someday :)
I wish I still had my Barbie SunSailer Catamaran, but that was handed down to younger cousins. Again, thank you for the information to identify my old dolls. Your site was an enjoyable trip down memory lane!

Thank you Linda! I am so happy you enjoyed the site & found it helpful! Our beautiful Barbie Dolls do bring back great memories, don't they? (Sorry it took me so long to get this - I think it got "lost" somewhere along the way!)
