Western Stampin' Collection
Would kids today be excited about "spurs" that double as stamps? Probably not, what with their need to have a camera rammed in Barbie's chest, but I certainly was. I had Western Stampin' Barbie as well as Tara Lynn, but I opened Barbie and played with her. Those stupid stamps never did work that well, and the hat never stayed on Barbie's head. I don't think I used the glitter. Barbie's jacket did have some kick-ass fringe, though.
The Western Stampin' collection is from 1993.
I'm a little sad that I did not pick up the Ken from the collection.
As you can see from the back of the box, he is wearing jeans and black "leather" chaps. He is worthy of my collection of hilarious Ken dolls, which only consists of two right now: Rappin' Rockin' Ken and Earring Magic Ken. A Ken in chaps would fit right in.
I collect Barbie dolls. It's a hobby most of my friends find perplexing. I haven't yet found anyone in my social circle who shares my love of the 11.5-inch plastic fashion queen — so I decided to branch out.
In blogging about Barbie, I hope to find and communicate with other collectors like me.
