I grew up playing with Barbies, but mostly just when friends came over. I remember my mom spending hours sewing special outfits for my dolls. The sad thing was, I never really played with them. Now with two young girls in my house, you would think that I would be sewing the special outfits and tripping over well loved barbies. It must be genetic because the girls play with them some, but like me only occasionally. Barbie hair always seems to be out of control. We set up this simple salon to help fix Barbies hair, and the girls loved it.
Today was a good day to dig out the Barbie collection and play. Sometimes you just need a holiday to celebrate:) On March 9, 1959, Barbie (Barbra Millicent Roberts) debuted at the American Toy Fair in New York City. Who knew Barbie had a full name. Happy Birthday Barbie.
As you can tell from this poor girls hair, the barbies in our house are in need of some love. After some quick research on line about how to care for barbie hair, we set up a little salon.
I love how they are all lined up. Bree is learning how to braid, and a captive audience like this is the perfect time to practice her budding skills.
The barbies look so cute all dressed up and hair done. Nothing like a trip to the salon to make a birthday special.
