It was not easy to find this variation box of the Classic Cocktail Dress Silkstone doll. Just a few were made by Mattel for Monte Carlo so they could give them to members of the press to promote their new Barbie Jewelry line.

Here a picture of the Brazilian actress Thaila Ayala with her doll.

I don’t collect the new articulated Silkstone dolls anymore. But I just had to have this fun variation box. She will looks very cute displayed with my silkies.

Cheryl’s Dolls and Collectibles has the new  Charlotte Olympia Barbie doll on pre-order. And yes she has pictures !!!

2017 Barbie Calendars by Graphique de France

Graphique de France released their new Barbie calendars for 2017 and they are filled with new sketches by Robert Best.


I love the girl on the cover of the large calendar.

201700000802_1And it has so many new sketches on the inside. Imagine what a cool collection of dolls this can be. So hopefully some will make it into production next year.

The small calendar is also a lot of fun.


They used a collection of sketches that we only saw in Asia on some beauty products.


I love the Christian Lacroix vibe in these sketches.

Both calendars are now for sale on http://www.graphiquedefrance.com.

$14.99 and $7.99
