I was recently visiting my mother in Alabama and my daughter, who is now 38, said that she had come across my old Barbie's. I could not believe that she still had them. They are over 45 years old and in wonderful shape. It was tons of fun sitting looking through all the clothes and accessories. It really brought back many memories. My grandkids, 16 and 9, really got a big kick out of seeing the clothes that I had designed and made. Yes, I really played with them!
