Bloggy Giveaway Carnival--Limited Edition Barbies, BNIB. A random drawing for
Jen Lancaster anyone who enters.
You know, a lot of people would try to eBay this kind of thing, but I'm not organized enough.
Well, of course, I'm not organized enough. These are Barbies I bought for my daughter under the assumption that she'd become interested in Barbie some day.
OK, confession time--I bought one of them when I was pregnant with her. Yes, I really am that hopeless.
But anyway, my daughter's interest in Barbie evaporated a few years ago--and it was never all that great to begin with, as it was limited to extricating her from her package, losing her shoes, and messing up her hair.
(It seems pretty obvious that even as a small child, my daughter had a somewhat cavalier, frat-boy attitude towards her dolls.)
OK. Obviously, the interest in Barbie was really mine all along. Pathetic Baby Boomer that I am.
So anyway, for your Giveaway pleasure, I have the following:
The Avon Exclusive, Special Edition, Second-in-a-Series "Winter Rhapsody" Barbie, copyright 1996, which you could only get from an Avon lady
The Little Debbie Snacks Special Edition Barbie, copyright 2001, which you could only get if you sent in box tops. Of Little Debbie Snack Cakes. OK, we interrupt this shame spiral to bring you our final Barbie,
The Walt Disney World Resort Four Parks One World Barbie from 2002, which I bought for my kids' babysitter's niece ... and never got around to giving her. Because I am a LOSER.
You know, it's a good thing confession is good for the soul.
Anyway, I'm assuming these would be of interest to Barbie collectors, but of course, you'll be glad to know that none of them was made in China, so if you want to risk that whole choking hazard situation, you could probably let your children gnaw on the paint with impunity. Although if you do, you didn't read that here.
Leave me a comment if you're interested. I'll be running a drawing at 5:00 p.m. this Friday. Oh, and you have to take all three of them--no choosies.
(Did you notice they're all brunettes? I always had a soft spot for Barbies who had brown hair LIKE ME.)
***Edited to add***
Hello, friends of Jen! If you think Susie Sunshine should shut up and let Jen enter the contest, just like everyone else, I agree. So I'm entering her.
But I'm not entering Susie Sunshine. Even though I totally know she wants the Little Debbie one. Because I'm cruel--but fair.
***Edited again to add***
Yes, I'll mail overseas, so feel free to enter even if you live in Antartica. Also, be sure I have a way to email you--either a link back to your blog or your email address or both.
