Hi Dolls! I’m Lynne and I’ve been into Barbies for as long as I can remember! I’ve been collecting vintage Barbies for a few years now. I decided to create a Barbie site and blog focusing on my favorite years ~ the MOD era from 1967 – 1972. My friends tease me about my Barbie passion (obsession?!) I’ve discovered a lot about Barbie over the years, and I’d like to share my knowledge with you. As I’ve been researching Barbie and her friends, I wasn’t able to find the information I was looking for in one place. I was pouring through books and guides, and searching online for hours.
My goal is to provide an easy to navigate, one-stop forum where we can share our Barbie stories, thoughts and photos. And, well, to just talk Barbie! I’m going to provide Barbie news, Barbie doll values, history, doll and fashion info, and more! As I’m developing this site, I’m very interested in the types of things you’d like to read about regarding Barbie and her friends. You can reply to this blog or email me at ModBarbies@gmail.com.
I will leave you with an interesting tidbit about us collectors. “Mattel estimates that there are well over 100,000 avid Barbie collectors. Ninety percent are women, at an average age of 40, purchasing more than twenty Barbie dolls each year. Forty-five percent of them spend upwards of $1,000 a year.”
I will admit that I fall into that category, haha. What about you? Let’s talk!
