Holiday Barbies Are Already Arriving, Check Out These Madelon Fun Finds

Madelon and I have been spending some time in the Barbie Aisle lately! Her photos are far better than mine but my wish list is longer. I have always loved the holiday Barbies and where I live we don't get as many wonderful ones in store as our friends in the USA, so I am very grateful to Madelon for sending these photos so I could drool! If only shipping was not so much I would have her send these my way asap!
This years Holiday Barbie has a very stunning look. I love the star background and I am a sucker for the red holiday dress. I love this one!


In the take my money category, this three pack would be under my tree and on my table this holiday season. I love playsets like this one and think this would make a wonderful gift!
What is a holiday without baking? I think this is a fun set too!
Why I love this set is not just the sweet little snowman but the sled for the dolls, looks like you could get a couple of dolls on the sled! Great play value!
Top of the stocking this would go in my house if I had a little girl, might just have to ask Santa for one myself! Love the little top hat and the gingerbread inspired dress!

One of the things I do love about Barbie is that there is the affordability factor. Even if you can not pick up the collector Barbies there are always some lovely finds at very affordable prices and honestly this is the dolls I love the most. Helping put dolls in the hands of doll lovers of all economic backgrounds., making doll play affordable for everyone is  really important to me.

Thank you Madelon for sharing these fun finds with us today and helping me personally feel just that much more excited for the holidays.

Mommy Monday Moment with Jenny, A Look Back At Her Favorite Toys...

Todays Mommy Monday Post is a look back at Jenny's favorite childhood toys...


Toys! I was the girl that had the biggest imagination, the craziest, wildest play ideas. I was the kid that would drag out ever grocery item from our cupboards and set up a full store, complete with a pharmacy! I was the girl, during winter, that would make a baby doll out of snow and pull it around the snowy yard in my red sled. Thats me on the left!
My sister and I would make full size Barbie houses using VHS tapes and when we wanted to have a little more fun on rainy days we would have our parents obtain a BUNCH of cardboard boxes and we would make a huge tunnel system right in our living room.
Trust me though, I had my favorite toys too! Setting, early 1990’s, sandbox, loaded with Matchbox cars and Polly Pockets. I LOVED Polly Pockets. I would save up any money I earned and by a new set after church on Sunday mornings. I would spend forever in the Ames aisle, assessing each one. I had a huge collection, however, I gave them to my niece when I got older
and haven’t seen them since ☹ #HEARTBROKEN. Last year, I went on EBAY and bought a few of my favorite sets for my daughters, they really held back the enthusiasm that I thought would be present.
This camper set was by far my favorite set I purchased. I loved how her bike hooked on the back! And she was super cool because her legs split so she could ride her bike.

I also had these sets. I really enjoyed the one on the left. I loved how the TV would change with the button on the top, and the purple bean bag had a spot perfect for a girl to sit, and the sofa folded out! AAAAHHHHH I LOVED pull out sofas as a kid! One time I got stuck inside ours – but that’s for another time! HA! Ok – I need to stop looking through EBAY right now – because it is too painful. UGH – I wish I had these still. I had SO many sets and took such great care and really played with them.
When I wasn’t busy with Polly Pockets I had three doll houses and I would lock myself, not literally, in my room for hours and just sit and play. I often look for this kind of play in my own kids – I can’t find it.
So, lesson learned here – save the toys you cherish, because one day you will want to share your childhood play with your own kids. I didn’t, and regret it often.
