Let the pictures begin!

Since it's the 50th anniversary of Barbie, let me share some of my collection.

This is the Skipper Dream House, with Skipper (on the right) and her friend Scooter on the left.

This is the top of the house when it's all folded up. It's about 4 inches wide.

This is what it looks like when it's opened out with the furnishings. All are made of cardboard, except the curtains and the vanity and stool skirts.

All the furniture fits in either the closet or the vanity when you're done.

The alcove folds back up, too. I tell you, this is head and shoulders above the Barbie house we bought my daughter, which was plastic and will probably live on in a landfill for about a thousand years.

As I was taking this little trip down memory lane, one of the cats had to check it out.

Talk about bringing back memories - I used to have that black Barbie case on the left in the top picture. I'd completely forgotten about it! I was so proud of that case!

Thanks for bringing back some forgotten memories, Margaret.

Wow, you have some interesting Barbie things.

I thank my mom for saving it all. I only wish I still had my Barbie Dream House, as it was even more impressive (and also made out of cardboard). It had a living room, kitchen and bedroom.

Tomorrow, classic Barbie fashion! They had some pretty impressive outfits back in the day.

My daughter now has all my Barbies.

*sigh* I loved my Barbie dolls, even though most of mine were crazy 80's ones.
