My Favorite Barbies: Mbili Barbie

There's a lot of excitement around the new Ava Duvernay Barbie, and rightfully so. However, Mattel has also produced other fabulous Black Barbies for the adult collector. Here's one of my favorites, Mbili Barbie from the Treasures of Africa Collection by Byron Lars. She was produced in 2002 and is no longer available from Mattel.

Ava Duvernay Ignites New Interest in Black Barbies

So the Ava Duvernay Barbie sold out within an hour, or minutes, on the Barbie Collector website according to various media outlets. Wow. How many units are being produced? I was not one of the lucky purchasers. Deep sigh. Loving the braided hair a lot like the African-American Harley-Davidson Barbie from 2001.

For sure many of my Facebook friends were unaware of the many Black collectible Barbies. It's been fun sharing pictures and information on Black Barbies and my other collectibles.
