Barbie Basics – Collection 1 Model 3

20 Jan

A fabulous January sale at ASOS meant that I finally ended up purchasing two dolls that I`ve been planning to buy for a long time now (well, actually I didn`t exactly buy them myself – thanks loads boyf). Here`s one of them – the gorgeous Steffie-faced number three. I think she`s more realistic than the red-headed model 3 from collection 1.5 (who I first featured back in June last year) and I really like her pale skin, which is quite striking when you see her in the plastic. If you`re interested, the sale at ASOS continues and you can get this doll for a ridiculous £12. The sad thing is, the price of these dolls has dropped to such an extent its obvious ASOS are desperate to get rid of their stock, and if they`ve sold that badly its unlikely they`re ever going to offer a doll range again. Its hard to find reasonably-priced distributors in the UK, so this isn`t good news 😦

    Number 2 (she of the unfortunate name…) is even cheaper at £9! Agree that it is a shame this means they wont have anymore though…

    And their number two (who is actually model 11 in the basics series) is quite a bonny doll as well, although she doesn`t look it on the picture they`ve got on the ASOS site. I was really hoping they might sell collection two on there at some point, so I could pick up a few for a reasonable price, but no chance now 😦

      Are you a member of Prego? Or look on the doll site? Its more for the 16″ dolls but there are a lot of barbie collectors there too and very often they sell off old stuff to fund new obsessions..Ive just seen the Barbie harley set (outfit) for $15!
      Not all sell to the UK (what a suprise!) but some do and you can pick up some real bargains as a lot of collectors prefer it to ebay..

    […] the first doll to get rebodied was Collection One Model Three. Because she is so pale, a LIV body seemed the best option. This is great as far as I’m […]
