Cute Barbie separates!

The oncoming ice storm prompted a trip to fetch groceries.  Odd...the side roads are still bad enough that the local schools are closed, but the main roads are completely clear.  Anywho, since I was the one who had to actually GET the groceries, I decided to check the doll isles for new spring outfits.  The My Life line has had new stuff since shortly after Christmas and apparently, so has Barbie.  Check this out!
There was a small box of individually packaged clothing items; skirts, jeans, dresses, tops, and such.  I got this cute yellow bunny dress and a pair of blue jeans, but the jeans fell out of the shopping cart somewhere along the way so I ended up with just this dress for now.  It's your typical budget Barbie dress, with simple lines and printed fabric on only one side...
...which is too bad, because the front has BUNNIES!!!  This will make a perfect Easter dress.  Right now my Winx Club Musa is wearing it.
I thought it would look cute with Musa's blue hair.  Plus, she just got a new pair of yellow shoes.  LOL, I got those a couple of weeks ago on a discount. 

Apparently these little clothing pieces have been out for a few months.  Presto at Growing up is for Quitters has known about these since December 18th and noted that they make great little stocking stuffers.  Christmas is long over now, but these would make fabulous little trinkets for a young Barbie lover's Easter basket, or as an end-of-school trinket, or just for the heck of it, they're so affordable.  They fit a decent number of dolls besides Barbie...or rather, this dress does.  Winx Club dolls and Fairy Tale High dolls can both wear this, though the fit is a bit big.  My Francie-bodied doll Mary-Anne can also wear this...
...as can Ariel, who has a body different from Barbie and Musa...
...and Teen Skipper...
...AND this 90's Skipper.
These little seps remind me of the Pak items Mattel produced back in the sixties.  I'm far too young to have owned any Paks, but they were still a splendid idea.  I hope Mattel will keep these up and maybe release some more accessories.

Happy Chinese New Year!


  1. Love that bunny print - nice find!

    1. Thank you! What can I say, I'm a sap for whimsy stuff like bunnies. LOL, I don't know exactly what all Mattel has to offer, but I'll post again when I find out.

  2. I like that bunny print dress, too. Will have to look for it. Thanks for the notice ;-)

    1. You're most welcome! I like the bunny print dress the best so far, but there's plenty of other stuff available too. There's even a set of cat-themed accessories that are super cute.
