Miss Angola Wins Ninimomo Mini-Pageant

As soon as my campaign is over, I’m going to sell some of my Barbies and buy Ninimomos. I have had enough of admiring them online. I really, really want some. Take a look at this creation that won one of their mini-pageants. Miss Angola is absolutely gorgeous.

If you haven’t checked out their doll pageants, it’s a must for doll collectors. The workmanship of their customized dolls is unbelievable – especially the detailed beading and fabulous hair re-roots and face re-paints. Check out the other delegates in this pageant and other pageants online.

Oh yeah, before she was Miss Angola, she was Lt. Uhura Barbie.
Do check out the Ninimomo doll pageants for more amazing transformations.

More Barbie Controversy: Basic Model No. 10 Too Risque!

It seems one doll in the Barbie Basics Collection is causing a controversy in Minnesota. The particular doll, No. 10 (the one one the far right), is too risqué for children according to one mom. She’s correct. The doll is too risqué for children, that’s why the Barbie Basics Collection targets adult doll collectors, not children. Perhaps placement of the product should be addressed rather than pulling the doll from shelves.

A similar controversy arose a few years ago with Mattel’s Lingerie Barbie series. Mattel discontinued the Lingerie series but not before changing the doll’s signature lingerie to something more acceptable. Once again, those dolls were for adult collectors; not for little kids who may terrorize the doll with haircuts, underwater swimming or even beheading.

Let’s go back further to 1980 when the first Black Barbie hit the shelves and the thigh high cut of her red wrap skirt caused a stir. Heck, if we go all the way back to Barbie’s beginnings, her origin has always been a bit controversial since some say she was based on a German cartoon character and adult toy of questionable repute called Bild Lilli.

All Barbies are not for children. Be sure to select one (or more) that's age appropriate and don't get your knickers in a knot.

Helpful Video Series for Barbie Collectors [VIDEO]

I surfed across this helpful video on how to keep track of a Barbie collection. Several years ago I was really meticulous about keeping track of my collection. Unfortunately, I haven’t done that in quite some time. Instead of cataloging my collection, I think I’m going to really downsize this time and sell most of them online.

Check out the video series of tips on Barbie collecting from Sonja Fischer. Happy collecting! Have a pink and pretty day.
