Nice Black Barbie Memorabilia

After reading a recent blog by Who's the Mama Here? and learning about HSN.com's Barbie Loves Stila sale ($13.98 reduced from $40), I immediately ordered the Foxy version featuring the 1980 first Black Barbie -- or first black doll given the name, Barbie.




Instead of receiving the item ordered, I received the above paint can that features the Jewel Girl Barbie from the year 2000.  I called HSN to report the mishap and was instructed to return the item using the return shipping label provided.  A credit for the return shipping was applied to my account and the correct item shipped to me.


Today, the Foxy version arrived. The colorful, numbered, limited edition paint can contains black crinkle packing paper and the above featured items:  the Foxy doll palate of two eye shadows and cheek color, tangerine lip glaze, and waterproof black mascara.  Attached to the can is a "Barbie Look Book" with a brief illustrated history of each top-selling Barbie doll over the last 5 decades.

This is a nice piece of Black Barbie memorabilia. 

At the time of this post, the HSN sale is ongoing but Foxy is the only version that remains.
