Every girl owns or had owned a Barbie doll and it's fun to see Barbie through the ages. Barbie has been around for over fifty years and is still the most popular doll. And for each decade, there is a different style or theme to Barbie and all the other dolls in the Barbie universe. I previously wrote an article on toys from the past and wanted to mention Barbie but I felt she needed to have her own article. For nostalgic reasons, here are some Barbies and Barbie items I owned as a little girl in the early 2000s. Perhaps it will take you back to your childhood as well. Take a peek at Barbie through the ages.
1. Jewel Girl Barbie
Walking Barbie and Baby Sister Krissy
2. Potty Training Kelly Doll
This is probably one of the more disturbing items on this list.
3. Barbie Super Slide Kelly Doll Playset with Inflatable Waterslide
I remember being psyched when I got this as a birthday gift one year. I played with it anytime I was in the bath.
4. Princess Bride Barbie
This was a Christmas gift from my brother one year. He recalls me not liking it, which is weird because I enjoyed it a lot, especially with the mirror that changed images.
5. Palm Beach Barbie, Teresa, and Ken
What could be more fun?
6. Barbie Nutcracker
When I got this, I brought it to show-and-tell at school. Sadly, it didn’t last long as I broke the doll after spinning it on the spinning device.
7. Barbie Teresa Rain
This was a fun one that not everyone had.
8. Barbie and the Nutcracker Movie
This was the very last Barbie item I received. I watched it so many times - until I grew out of Barbie dolls.
9. Barbie Ocean Discovery
I completely forgot about this game. When I came upon it while searching, it was an immediate flashback to sitting in the office at our old Windows 98 desktop computer, playing this game.
10. Barbie Styling Head
Every girl wanted one of these, right?
11. Barbie Plush Purse Pillow
I took the purse pillow to every sleepover. It was so soft and pink.
12. Star Wars Episode 1 Ultimate Hair Queen Amidala Barbie
At five years old, I was a huge Star Wars fan when Episode 1 came out. I was all about Queen Amidala. However, I remember cutting off most of the hair on this doll. It didn’t turn out good.
13. Star Wars Hidden Majesty Queen Amidala Barbie
I was lucky enough to have two Barbie versions of Queen Amidala. This doll kept its hair thankfully.
I’m pretty sure there were some more Barbie items I left out as I couldn’t remember all the ones I owned. Feel free to share the Barbies you had as a girl.
