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.
