Barbie Basics Models 08 and 17 from Collection 002
I found this pair at Target today. It was as though someone had haphazardly placed them there for me. I noticed Model 17 first lying flat on top of other doll boxes. After grabbing his box with excitement, I looked for others and found 08. These were the only two dolls from this collection in stock. I scanned their boxes, which resulted in the message, "Item not in system," a déjà vu moment. The same thing happened to me last year when I found a lone So In Style Chandra and Zahara gift set at Target after Christmas.
After consulting two store associates and leading both individually to the previous Barbie Basics collections, the second associate determined, "since the collection is assorted, these are probably new but will still be the same price as the others." Associate #2 rang them up for me in electronics for $19.89 each along with the rest of my carted items.
