    Over the years Barbie because too much a characture of woman, Tyler for the most part does not have a characturized or campy look. She is more the idealized woman. 50 years later Tyler opens up play again, and helps me to refine and define my own fashion sense and style despite that fact that surely I should be beyond needing her aid by this age! Thanks Mr. Tonner.

    Cool collection you have a very nice one:) I also collect barbie dolls. I have over 175-180 dolls. I’ve seemed to have run out of room for them lol. I want the Scarlett one! I’ve looked for that one lol. I like it because it looks like Vivien Leigh. Where did you find it at? Don’t take them out of their boxes. Also when did the Romeo and Juliet ones come out? Sorry for a long message. I just love collecting barbies:) If you would please send me a message. That would be great. Thanks:)
