Barbie On Sale?

I thought so, but nope!  I went to Megamall 3 day Sale this afternoon and went straight to that store of collectible toys JAE located at the basement near Ace Hardware.  This is where I got 2 of my reproduction Barbie years ago.  I have no plans of buying anything, just want to window shop. 

The past months, I didn’t see any dolls on display here, but this day, there were plenty.  Some from 80’s and 90’s, there were Oscar Dela Renta couture collections too, Philippine Centennial Barbie, Kelly Dolls, etc.

Anyway, I thought they’re “ON SALE” but to my dismay, they are “FOR SALE” meaning no discount.  Too expensive for my budget.  For a true blue collector out there, they may find these cheap.

SLEEP EYES BARBIE

I have always wanted a Barbie with sleep eyes.  The one I saw was Miss Barbie from 1964, complete with wig wardrobe!  I wish I could chance one in a thrift store.  I don’t want to buy from ebay or amazon because I can’t afford.  My budget?  Php500.00 LOL!!  It’s like shooting for the moon! 

Anyway, I have already featured this doll a long time ago here , for my own reference, I’m posting her again, with a bit of detail who she is.

SLEEPING BEAUTY 1998 by Mattel

I found her nude, her left hand had been chewed off, luckily, her sleep eyes are OK.

Raise her right arm and you’ll awaken her,  lower it back and she’s in deep slumber.

If you wish to keep her eyes open while playing, raise her right arm, then switch down the lever on her back to lock it.  Now, her right arm is free to move up and down without affecting the eyes.  She will only close her eyes if you switch the lever up again.  Ha ha ha, of course I’m sure everybody knows that already, she was released in 1998, so that’s 19 years ago!  Again, its for my own reference.

Headmark 1991 Mattel Inc. China, Bob Mackie face sculpt, her head is hard plastic, has 3 separate parts, the face, nape and scalp.

Her scalp is made of a different plastic material for the purpose of  easy rooting, same way as Blythe dolls, etc.

I rummaged through my loot bin for a dress and this is the only princess outfit I have, which didn’t really fit her (boobs problem) and a few accessories.  I was suppose to let her try other clothing, but the sun is almost down, yay!
