Used to buy a doll every quarter with my reward. Sometimes much more if they offered good sales. So far, I've bought one doll this year and it wasn't with my "reward" which is really a coupon to me. I didn't get the platinum doll this year since I joined the club as a gold member since they didn't bother to mention that that platinum members get first chance! I've spent much more on eBay buying dolls from other companies.
This has just not been a Barbie year for me!
: Who would like Mattel to use the original
: sculpts or their dolls on all the repos and
: make them as true to the original as
: possible with only make-up enhancements, and
: original hair-styles as close as possible
: without over or under rooting and bands done
: as close to the originals. I'm afraid Mattel
: takes our collecting pretty light and does
: not pay attention to the details we all
: flock to Barbie for. I do know one of their
: main competitors is now starting to up the
: competition, this yr and stealing a great
: number of Barbie collectors away, I hope we
: can make Mattel understands how important it
: is to listen to us and help us keep their
: brand on top, other wise they will be left
: behind wondering what happened, and how they
: can steal their collector base back.
