  • I had so many barbies when I was little! My favorite was one that you used ice water/warm water to change the color of her hair :P My DD is 4 and just starting to like Barbie, at first I was hoping that she wouldnt because barbie has too much crap but now I am kind of excited and my mom just told me that she kept a few of mine and plans to give them to my DD soon!

  • Yes, I had a couple of Barbies, but my mom preferred for me to play with "little girl" dolls. She thought Barbie dolls would make me grow up too fast!

  • My favorite barbie was "Kissing barbie." We where very poor and when it came out during the 70s I never thought I would get it for xmas. I was so happy when I got it, that was the only present I got, but that was so ok. lol

  • Nope, I had GI Joes. My sister had them and I usually ended cutting off their hair or pulling the heads off to annoy her. I was very much the tomboy and anti anything my sister liked!!

  • but of course...back in those days my sis and I used to get left over peices of carpet and glue it to the inside of our doll carrying cases. It was like a livingroom and we used lincoln logs for furniture. My dd had this whole barbie dream

  • I loved Barbies when I was little, I had tons of them, lol.. My sister & I used to play all the time :) I cant remember a favorite though.

  • Yep! ALL the time....there were 3 of us girls (all within 3 years of each other), so we had every barbie known to man! Lol! And we had all the accessories....what used to make me so mad was my oldest sister (3 years my senior) would spend an HOUR setting up the house, furniture, cars, etc., how she wanted and then when it was FINALLY time for me to play she'd say "Ok....I'm tired of playing this" and walk off! LOL! We still laugh about that to this day....

  • Yes. I never made them talk or walk though. Usually I would just dress them and decorate Barbie's Dream House. I always thought it was strange when I played Barbies with other girls and they used their voices and like acted out stories and stuff lol.
