Black Friday @Toys R Us

I was surprised to see the Barbie Basics dolls on Black Friday, including two of the AA versions at Toys R Us.  The one with the deepest complexion, Model 004 was missing... possibly sold out. The dolls are all beautiful.  Model 008's complexion and hair color are pleasantly deeper than the prototype's online image.  Their basic black dresses are simple, which is to be expected for dolls priced at $21.99 at the store and $19.95 online at BarbieCollector.com. 




I also saw three adorable, 14-inch babies by FAO Schwarz  at TRU:  Emma, Kiri, and Lily, priced at $34.99. It was a pleasure to see a line of multi-ethnic babies; however, a Hispanic baby is not included.

  1. WOW, I'm surprised the babies are so cute. They normally disappoint me with the black dolls, which has me glad I never had a little girl.

  2. I didn't see Model 004 either here at one of our Toys R Us store. Great to see them out sooner than expected :-D

  3. Today I received notification from Barbie Collector via mail that models 008 and 010 are backordered (as indicated on their website when I ordered them) with an expected ship date of December 7. So, I am assuming they have already shipped model 004 to me.

  4. I saw Models 004 and 010: the former reminds me of the Princess of South Africa doll while the latter reminds me of Destiny - with all black hair and a darker complexion. Lovely dolls both. All the dolls in this series look great though.
