You know, aside from certain other matters i had a really great childhood. And one of my fondest memories was playing with my Barbie dolls.
I played with them from the age of five or six up until i was twelve then i grew out of it.
I had a whole lot of accessories that went along with Barbie such as her clothes, town house, trailer, pool, cars, and so on. I had nothing but pure fun!
I didn’t ever think the day would come when i was no longer interested in my Barbie Dolls anymore. However, normally a person matures as i did.
Much later on though, during my twenties, i began having dreams about purchasing many Barbies and a feeling that came along with it in the dreams was the great love that i had for playing with them as a child.
Even though all of my dreams come true i could not imagine that i would actually start buying Barbie dolls for myself at my grown age.
A while after i had began working at J.C. Penny’s last year i’d go around window shopping, sometimes checking things out during my hourly breaks. I happen to hit a Toys ‘R’ us and a K.B. toy store and i was once again “captured” by Barbie.
I just couldn’t resist starting a collection. One day as i stood at a counter making a purchase a white woman about in her fifties uttered to me that she still “loves Barbie”. I’ve collected quite a few so far, just as many as i had when i was a little girl. I am going to buy a pretty curio to pose them all in.

Isn’t it nice to know the Barbie’s of our childhood (I have an original from the 60′s) are now worth a small fortune! Yah Barbie!
