Barbie Girls Come in All Colors... Shouldn't Barbie Accessories?

I am not a Barbie girl (per se), but ...




... I signed the Petition for Mattel to offer party supplies featuring Barbies of Color.

Hope you will, too.

  1. I remember I found a ballet Barbie of color comforter for my grandaughter. I was so excited. Shame we have to be so needy for what others take for granted. smh

    1. I can only imagine your enthusiasm about finding the Barbie comforter The Grandmommy.

      It is sad that in 2013 the struggle still exists to get manufacturers to consider the diversity of our world when manufacturing their products. They are stuck in the old school thinking of "They will buy the white one anyway." Times are changing and many no longer settle when something else is desired.

    1. Thanks, Vanessa!

      The little "Bobbie" (as some of them pronounced it) girls are so adorable in the video!

  6. I was just made aware of the African American party themed product and services company, P. J. Tuttles. The owner of the company wrote:

    "My name is Adjua Ferguson, I love your collector's group. I actually created and own an African American Party Decor line, called P.J. Tuttles Party Décor and Gifts.
