Barbie Fashionistas OLD Knees are better than the NEW knees and here is why! Part 2

100_4880 In Part 1 I explained my feelings on the Fashionistas line; in this 2nd part I will go into why I feel the old knees are a little bit better than the new knees and show you different styles in posing her dolls in pictures.

Have you ever notice with the old knees the legs are thicker than the new knees legs! The body on the old knees looks healthy and show Barbie with a really nice shape. Although the old knees look funny when you want your doll to stand up, she stands up in place. With the new knees when you try to make your doll stand up, she easily falls downs.

I will say that the new knees are better in posing than the old knees. With the new knees you can pose your doll anyway you want to and get a great shot!

100_4882 The old Knees are not that great in posing but, you can still find ways to make them look better!


I’m not saying you should buy the old knees instead of the new knees, just be glad we have a choice to buy either one. I like to keep things balance so I will buy both to be fair to all my girls!

I’m still a supporter of Barbie and would love to see where the Fashionistas line goes on from here!


  1. I see your point about the look of the legs with the new knew. Are they really doing both knees or are the using up the older knees and the new knees will be the only knees in time?

  2. I sure wish they would add an AA male to the Fashionista line.

  3. Six years later from the publication of this article, the specs of the Barbie Fashionistas line have gone downhill because of their lack of articulation...Beautiful faces but can do very limited poses. What a shame!

Dolls Do It Better: A Aaliyah tribute Vs Marisa

This is a special tribute to R&B singer and dancer Aaliyah, who died in a plane crash on August 25, 2001. Aaliyah had a few hits that include “Age Ain't Nothing But a Number”, “One in a Million” and “Rock the Boat”. Aaliyah’s styles was very Tomboy but still very girly at the same time. This picture is very cool and down to earth, that was the kind of person Aaliyah was.

I'M COMING BACK.....................

I did not forget about any of you. I actually wrote a post back in July, but many things have happened that is completely out of my control. I found a job back in April and up until right now I've been working my butt off like crazy for six days a week and taking care of my mother. Let me just say, I think God for my job each day, but this has been the worst summer in my entire life. I'm hoping to get my six turn into five. My health and house are such a mess. The children are always crying out for me. I need to get my life back in check! Until then, please stay bless and cool. I'm praying for the fall to come fast!

Monster High: Cleo De Nile and Deuce Gorgon & What I think about the Monster Dolls

Here I am again with more photos of my new obsession Monster High dolls Cleo and Deuce. Being a person who was never into big headed dolls like Blythe (which are very cute) the Bratz, My Scene (even though I have a few), Liv dolls and Moxie girls this is really new for me! I think we all knew about these dolls for over a month now and I never thought I would become such a big fan. Mattel really has a hit on there hands and they don't need to mess this one up, HINT HINT FASHION FEVER! As I said on Monday's post you can watch Monster High on YouTube and there will be novels coming soon which I really can not wait for and maybe even a show on TV! This is really something to look forward to
