William and Catherine Royal Wedding Dolls: Behind the Scenes

I didn't have a strong opinion either way about this set.  There are things I like and some other things that are so-so to me.  I do love the Catherine doll.  If I saw her loose on ebay I'd probably get her.  Well, after seeing this new Barbie Collector vid there is something in me saying buy this set, buy this set!  I love the closing scene the best but it's just too short.  Would love to see some still pics of that scene.  Let me know what you think.

Four Years Ago Today Barbie came to my house!

Posted by thedollcafe at Monday, April 16, 2012 10 comments
On April 16, 2008 a film crew came to my home to film a personal interview with my daughter Stephanie and me for inclusion in the Barbie in a Christmas Carol DVD! I found out about this opportunity through a friend who was also a member of the Barbie Fan Club board. She said there is a post requesting mother and daughter collectors for a special project. I responded to the post and sent a picture of us and about a month later we heard from Mattel and Universal about the project. We had a conference call and they let us know they wanted to come to our house and interview us and then later invite us to the Mattel Design Center in El Segundo, California. Wow, we were so amazed! We spent the next several weeks cleaning up the house and setting up all our favorite Barbie in Stephanie's room. To this day I have never forgotten this fabulous experience. We visited the Mattel Design center on April 18, 2008. I still pinch myself today. I miss Sharon a lot and am happy to have met her and spent the day with her! A few years ago I found out this DVD was on You Tube. I hope you enjoy it.

My Tarina Obsession

Posted by thedollcafe at Wednesday, April 11, 2012 13 comments
I hope you all had a fabulous Easter. Spring is finally here and warmer weather greets us. Actually it's raining here today but no matter. My Tarina is ready for spring fun in her Kari Michell dress. Please check my Flickr for my continuing month of Daily Tarina pics in the 2012 Dolly Daily. I took so many pics at the end of March that I decided to make a month dedicated to Tarina. As soon as I'm done posting this set of pics I have a new set ready for publication. Enjoy your dolly days ahead!
