I finally had the chance to take some pics of the Katrina Kaif I Can Be Barbie.  As Barbies go she is a regular playline belly button Barbie with the Lara/Drew face mold.  Her accessories include a female Oscar and a gold purse with matching gold jewelry that's a little nicer than most recent playline dolls.  It's too bad that playline dolls no longer feature this face mold.  The face mold gives her more of a collector doll look. I was hoping the doll would look more like the prototype that I posted about in my last post but this doll is very beautiful and she could easily be rebodied to a model muse body as the skin tone is the usual Barbie tan color that a lot of MM bodies come with!

Barbie goes Bollywood with the Katrina Kaif Barbie Doll

Posted by thedollcafe at Friday, August 26, 2011 2 comments

I have heard a lot about Katrina Kaif and her upcoming Barbie doll but I don't know much more about Katrina apart from the fact that she is an actress born in England who became a big Bollywood star!  I remember reading about the doll last fall and there were even prototype pictures available.  As you can see from the pics, the prototype is wearing an outfit similar to an outfit that Katrina Kaif modeled for Barbie's 50th Anniversary.  The doll was also a Model Muse doll.  It looks like Katrina Barbie went through some changes for the final product.  Now you can own her Barbie doll from the I Can Be series.  Barbie I Can Be a Movie Star, Katrina Kaif features the Barbie I Can Be a Movie Star packaging that is similar to the US Version.  Katrina Barbie also holds a female gold "Oscar" in her hand.  I was able to obtain one of these dolls from a friend in India.  I will post some pictures in my next blog post.

Barbie hits the red carpet in first UK TV campaign

Posted by thedollcafe at Thursday, August 25, 2011 0 comments

Barbie is a star, but I'm shocked to learn that this is her first UK TV campaign. According to Adpraisal, ad agency Ogivily has created two adverts aimed to strengthen and build Barbie’s relationship with 4-9 year old girls.  I hope the stores are well stocked with Barbie items for our UK Barbie fans.  May this be the beginning of a nice successful campaign.  Since Barbie is heading off on her Grand Tour for Barbie Convention in 2012, maybe the UK decided to get in on the fun.  This looks kind of like a teaser since I doubt these Barbies will ever actually be produced.  Look at the Ken.  He seems to be the glamorous Ken staring in ads this year.  Barbie looks like she is wearing a dress based on the Heidi Klum Barbie dress.  The Barbie also looks like a glammed up Fashionista Barbie.  Hopefully the UK will see increased interest and sales for our favorite girl in their future!

The Metallic Basics are now available! We've seen several pics of them on ebay mostly from a foreign seller. These boxes are labeled 2.1! Today, Barbie Collector placed the collection for sale in their shop, for the nice price of $19.99 I might add, and listed them as 2.5. Well, 2.1 or 2.5 take a look at this Flickr stream with some great pics of two out of the three new Barbie Basics! Wow! What do you think of the body? Is it what you expected? I ordered my dolls today and ordered two of each of these dolls. I want one on the pivotal body and one on MM. I am waiting to get a second of Model No. 8 because I'm not sure if her skin tone will match any MM bodies I have. I know, I'm strange. LOL!

I saved a lot of money because of the sale that Barbie Collector currently has going.  I hope my dolls arrive soon!

2011 Barbie Convention Report Part 2

Check out this great video that convention goers at the 2011 convention were treated to promoting the 2012 Barbie Convention The Grand Tour. Credit goes to co-chair Rocky! It is beautifully produced and I think you will enjoy it. It brought me back to the fun times of 2011's convention!  After seeing this, I'm super excited for 2012!

Barbie Basics 3.0 by The Doll Cafe

It has been an exhausting couple of weeks. I was preparing for, attending and recovering from the 2012 National Barbie Doll Collector's Convention in Ft. Lauderdale Florida! The convention was amazing! So many things to see and do! Please see my Flickr set for the pictures I took of the Barbie Basics 3.0 and the two accessory packs that will be available. These dolls were available for viewing at the Barbie Fan Club event on Friday July 29, 2011. BC Shannon was hosting this table display.  Sadly, it has been reported that this collection will be the last in the set of Barbie Basics.
