It Worked! The Postman Rang Once

The newly placed neon orange sticky note on my mailbox with instructions for delivery people to ring my doorbell worked!

This morning the doorbell rang... once.  It was the postman with Barbie Basics Model No. 08 Collection 003.  He did not wait for me to get to the door, but he rang the bell, AND he placed the box between the storm door and the entrance door -- a first time occurrence for this postman. 

Even though her hair is not styled exactly like the prototype's (it looks like a big Afro puff on top of her head), she's gorgeous.  I took several in-box photos which are shared below.

Her accessories include gold bangle bracelet, gold lamé tote, orange and yellow print scarf, yellow strappy heels.

This separately sold accessory pack, Look No. 01 Collection 03, arrived Tuesday.

Deboxing with additional pictures to follow.

  3. Yeah! I'm so glad your postman listened! I came home from running an errand today and at my door was my doll! My hubby ordered her for me for Christmas and she was just sitting outside. I was getting ready to go look for that postman till my hubby opened the box and I saw her! It calmed me down a bit. At first I thought they did a switch and sent me the wrong doll cause she does look a bit different than the pic. Your right, her hair is still in a big poof. She is pretty though!

  4. Congrats! She does look different. I thought she was going to look more like S.I.S. Chandra but she's just No 8 with a darker complexion. Very pretty.

  5. Thanks for the congrats, ladies.

    Tracy India - I thought this doll was Chandra in appearance and complexion when I saw the prototype images. She's not either. Her complexion is not as dark as Chandra's and the head mold, as you've observed, is not Chandra's either.

  6. The postman actually rang your doorbell AND placed the box between the door and the storm door? Hmm, I wonder if the possibility of losing a job because of the postal budget woes might be applying a not-so-subtle hint that they had better get up to speed with packages.

    Congrats on your new doll - she is a beauty.

  9. Congrats! She was already on my list. After seeing her restyled on flickr last night, she moved up to the top spot.

  11. You know me. I aim to enable. Flickr will be the death of my wallet for sure! there. Now I want 2 of the dolls so I can take the hair down on one and keep it up on the other.

  12. OMGoodness, Vanessa. That really means you'll need four dolls all together if you plan to rebody both dolls. My next question, is what doll will be the rebody candidate since the original doll we thought would work will not? An articulated Kara, perhaps?
