When I think back to my childhood, I’m brought back to a moment sitting on the cold floor of the weird lobby area outside of my bedroom. My friend Lee-Anne and I were chilling on the floor, making the Barbie prance around the house while she got ready to go on her first date. Something I had no idea about being like 10, but still. But who cares about that, playing make believe games is all about doing the things you’ve only imagined.
Come to think of it, I played Barbies with anyone that came over to my house, whether they wanted to or not. The girl down the road had a Ken and a whole stash of awesome clothes, so we frequently got together to see what new adventures our Barbies would have. And even when I had no other girls to play with, I’d force my younger brother to play with me with his G.I Joes. Being the older sister has its benefits.
I’ve been dying for my girls to be old enough to really appreciate the value of a beautiful Barbie and I think we’re getting there. Our girls were gifted a beautiful Holiday Barbie from Mattel and I swooned when I opened the boxes. It was like I was 10 years old again. They are so beautiful that I’m actually thinking about just keeping them aside for myself as collectors items. Maybe it’s selfish, but like, they may just be too beautiful to play with.
Hiding in my bedroom I was debating whether or not I should gift them to my girls for Christmas when Riya walked in. Although the Barbies themselves were safely packed away, I accidentally left an image open of them on my laptop. Even though I thought I was super sneaky, Riya saw the picture of them and sighed with awe. She then declared, “Now I want one of those for my birthday!”. So maybe I’ll have to relent and give it to her for Christmas.
Do you want the pain of trying to decide this too? Let me give it to you! Either to share with a special someone or even to keep for yourself as a collectors item, it’s totally up to you!
