I marked today's date and set a Windows Mail calendar reminder last week for 11:00 a.m. CST, then scribbled the name (Francie) on a piece of paper last night and placed it on my keyboard as a final reminder to order Barbie Fan Club-exclusive Fuchsia ‘n Fur™ Francie® today at the time mentioned.
My order has been placed with confirmation printed out. Now I await the arrival of what will be my second manufactured African American/black (no-longer colored) Francie.
|Dyed-brown 30th Anniversary Francie and Wild Bunch Francie have 1996 box dates but were released in 1997.|
With my $20 Barbie Fan Club reward for this quarter and BarbieCollector.com's current discount of $10 off orders totaling $50 to $74.99, the doll's retail of $74.95 was reduced to $44.95 plus tax, shipping, and handling.
Woo hoo! Naturally, as an unfocused (but doing better) black-doll enthusiast, I eagerly anticipate Francie's arrival as much as I anticipated ordering her! (I have now exhaled.)
