I’m not sure if I’ve written about this on my blog already somewhere or on a forum, so here I go again.
This is the story of my favourite childhood Barbie!
Day to Night Barbie was one of the first Barbie dolls I remember owning. It was back in the 80′s when everything was the way it was supposed to be, I had no worries, a safe home, the best parents, lots of brothers and sisters and toys that obviously made an impression.
I loved everything about Day to Night Barbie, the soft ‘suede’ material of her work pencil skirt, that would magically change into a hot pink tutu for her amazing date with Ken.
Her briefcase and contents would keep me occupied for hours, the calculator and the way it was specially made to fit in her hand. The pink sticker on the white briefcase and how it fitted everything in so perfectly.
Day to Night’s white hat with pink trim, I used to love getting her ready for work and plonking that on her ‘big’ pouffy blonde hair.
I don’t have this doll anymore, infact I don’t have any of my original childhood dolls, but I would consider buying her again to keep on display.
Who was your favourite childhood Barbie? Do you still have her or have you re added her to your collection as an adult?
