Should Barbie Basic 2.0 Model#4 stayed Black! Part 2

R9927_21-2

In both Barbie Basic 1 and 2.0 lines Model 4 has the Goddess face mold. The Goddess face mold has been use many times over the years for dolls of the world such as Sumatra-Indonesia, Princess of the Korean Court and Princess of the Pacific Islands. You also can find the Goddess in play-line dolls as well, Princess Edeline from The Twelve Dancing Princesses, Gillian from Fashion Fever and Pop Star Vitamin C!

In Basic Black Goddess makes her entrance with short curly black hair and dark luxury chocolate skin, with a killer V open back short dress! Model 4 became one of the most popular dolls in the Barbie Basic line and it will be only fair to bring her back for more! But now that Model 4 is back, she is not black!

Now in Barbie Basic 2.0 Model 4 has long read hair, lighter skin and is wearing a grey singlet top with black skinny jeans. Don’t get me wrong I love the way Model 4 looks, she reminds of The Twelve Dancing Princesses Edeline. I was kind of surprise to see Model 4 this time around, it looks like they bought almost all the girls back but Model 4 has the most drastic change!

For example Model 11 only change is her hair, I like blondes but we really didn’t need another blonde in the collection! I wish her hair was a medium length brown with curls.

Getting back to my point I wish Model 4 stayed black because it was really cool seeing a dark skin doll in the collection! Model 8 and 17 is holding it down for now, but I hope to see Model 4 or any other Model in the future with more dark skin complexions.

  1. Nice comparison. With Mattel, we just never know what we'll receive, reject, or welcome.

  2. I read somewhere the dolls are numbered instead of having names for this particular reason! Goddess mold is so versatile Im not surprised. Lea/kayla is another one I hope to see as an AA :)

  3. yeah, the "race switch" is a bit weird... they should have made one of the other previously "white" dolls black to balance it out - Mackie, Lara and Steffie have all been "black" before... I think Louboutin would look stunning in a dark skin tone.

  4. Mattel switches races on heads lots of time; I like the breadth of looks they can get by doing so. Louboutin in dark complexion would be interesting. In time ...

  5. It seems they are using that style/model for the non-traditional dolls, Black or red-headed. Hmm...

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.
Marisa is totally girly here and is not afaird to give it her all!What Marisa is wearing: Unknown top and 2008 Fashion Fever pants.

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
Cleo




Deuce
