Barbie Doll Debuts: March 9

Today’s Geneabloggers prompt celebrates the debut of the Barbie doll, on March 9, 1959.

As a child, I played with Barbie dolls like every other girl I knew. My mom, a life-long doll collector, kept my Barbies and continued to collect more until 2007. I’ve been photographing them, along with her other dolls, and placing the photos here on Blue Eyes and Bluebonnets.

#5 Barbie (1961)

This was my doll as a child. Mom has her listed as #5 Barbie (1961). The clothing is Lady Guinevere from 1964-1965. I’ve always been fascinated with the Knights of the Round Table, so this has always been my favorite Barbie costume.

    look smaller and to enhance the bust. So, all of
    them will buy a pair of beautiful chinese embroidered shoes without any
    hesitant. Make room for your trendy new wardrobe by going through your old
    clothes and getting rid of unwanted clothes.

  2. As you move closer to compliment her on her tan, you
    notice that it is smeared in several places and is more of a festive
    orange than a sexy bronze. Oily lotion can hinder your sunless tan or make it runny.

    This is to ensure you are protected should anything untoward happen in the salon.
