Barbie Dolls of the World

I’m a HUGE fan of Barbie. HUGE.

When I was a little girl, my Barbie Collection was under my bed. I had about 25 Barbie dolls and they were the best dresses Barbie’s ever. Being a mom of all boys, I have to say… I wish there was a Barbie in my house! My nieces have tons of them, and I have loved throughout the years getting to shower them with Barbie clothes, accessories and fabulousness!

It has always amazed me how Barbie has evolved so much throughout the years… she really is still an icon after all these years!

Today I’m excited to share a new Barbie Doll of the World Collection!!

Established in 1980, the Dolls of the World® Collection is the largest and longest-running series in the history of the Barbie® brand. After more than 30 years of success and over 100 dolls created, the line re-launched in 2012 with a fresh new look and introducing a new generation of Barbie fans to this global glamorous line.

Each doll wears an adorable ensemble inspired by the native costume and fashion of each country. Additionally, every doll package contains a ‘passport’ and a special pet providing extended play value. The packaging can also double as a carrying case for the doll or a place to store personal travel souvenirs.

I LOVE this because I think it’s an incredible way for a child to learn about different places in the world.

The new dolls released this FALL?
