barbie girl

Barbie is a classic toy that Juliet and I both love.  I get nostalgic just looking at anything Barbie so it was with great joy that we hosted this posh play date with a Barbie girl theme!  We blasted the music, “I’m a Barbie girl” and invited a friend to come over and party with us.  Both dressed perfectly in pink, giggled, sang along and danced to the music.

I’m a Barbie girl, in a Barbie world
Life in plastic, it’s fantastic
You can brush my hair, undress me everywhere
Imagination, life is your creation
Come on Barbie, let’s go party!

The girls snacked on Barbie fruit-flavored gummies and took turns playing with each Barbie station that was laid out ahead of time.  barbie doll, barbie styling head, giant barbie
Thanks to Just Play Products who sent a dream package consisting of this giant Barbie doll and a Barbie styling bust, we had such an exciting time getting girly! 

Standing over two feet tall, (giant) Barbie became a beautiful centerpiece for this fabulous table. Barbie Fashion Friend Doll is articulated so you can move her in fun poses and she comes dressed in a trendy removable outfit complete with stylish peep-toe shoes and beautiful rooted eyelashes!  She also comes in Black and Asian ethnicities!

The Barbie styling bust was my child-fantasy come true.  Hmph…I never did receive this item off my Christmas wish list…though I’m sure I was a good girl, (Santa)!!!  So it was with much gratefulness that I, I er …I mean Juliet unpackaged this gift.  I couldn’t believe how the styling heads of yester-years had advanced into the new year.  They now came with hands with which you could give manicures, hair that could flip and reveal a color change, and stencil or crimping sets for the hair!! How cool, right?

Juliet is completely obsessed with hairs styling right now so she couldn’t get over all the amazing features.  The Barbie Flip & Reveal Deluxe Styling Head features color change magic! Besides the hidden surprise of the hair – flipping magic, you could add water to the nail and lip applicator to transform Barbie’s nails and lips to a beautiful shade of dark pink!  You can even use the included stencils to create fun colored designs with the chalk marker! Comb Barbie’s hair with the cute pink brush, or style and braid it into fabulous up-dos with the pink hair bands! Add a bit of flair to Barbie’s look with the bonus hair extension and decorate her nails with the tiny stickers!   And again, this Barbie styling head (unlike in years past), comes in different skin and hair colorings!  Gotta love that!!

We had so much fun stylin’ with these classic dolls.  They encourage friendship, fashion and fun with their endless pretend play options. We love how Barbie has extended their offerings to include dolls of all races, shapes and sizes.  And we love how Barbie has so many career options and interests to explore nowadays!  She has become so much more than a fashionable friend!

Girls, grab your favorite friends and enjoy a fantasy (Barbie) world of fashion and fun!  And no, it’s not in Malibu;  Barbie’s house is in Las Vegas.  The Palms Casino partnered with the ever-fabulous Jonathan Adler, one of my favorite designers to create a real-life Barbie hangout. And it’s only available until June this year when Barbie turns 51.  So if you’re singin’ “I’m a Barbie, let’s go party ah ah yeaaahh” click here but I warn you, the prices may burst your pretty pink bubble .

This sure beats the make-believe Barbie house I created when I was a child.  (I didn’t have the coveted Barbie mansion so I created makeshift rooms that included a shoebox with my mom’s maxipad for Barbie’s bed).

Recently, I added to this pitiful childhood Barbie collection (which included this sorry bed and 1 Barbie doll) at NY’s ’09 fashion week where Barbie celebrated her 50th birthday. .
I was psyched as any little girl to have her very own, limited edition, NY fashion week Barbie
and I was tempted as everyone else was to rip off and take home one of the Barbies displayed behind me (inside the famed Bryant Park tents).

But alas, I managed to show a little restraint and happily watched the fashion show instead.  Click here to see photos of the runway models turned real-life Barbies!   Full video of the show in case you missed it is below.  As the song goes, “You can brush their hair, undress them anywhere…”
