|Travel Doll Janet, center, finds Curvy Barbie #32 and Petite Barbie #25 on Target's shelves.|
While there, I scoped out the Bratz clothing section (having remembered Vanessa's post from January 5, 2016) to see if there was an outfit interesting enough to purchase for Janet.
As part of the travel doll event that I coordinated for my doll group, we can buy clothing and other items for Janet. It is required, however, that we purchase at least one souvenir item that represents the host's city or state. I had already done the latter at the time of the Target visit. I didn't see any Bratz fashions that interested me (those huge Bratz shoes were a big turnoff . What would I do with those? Janet certainly can't wear them, I thought.). Before leaving that section, I noticed Target had some of the curvy Barbies in stock on the opposite aisle. One of the three African American ones that I placed on my wish list back in January was available.
My husband tried to convince me to buy one of the petite ones (doll 25, Blue Brocade), that Janet is shown with in the first photograph and a different curvy one, a blonde or brunette, but I decided against. Janet, however, insisted that I buy the wish-listed doll. It didn't take much for her to convince me to do this, so in the cart curvy girl #32, Dolled Up Denim, went.
At home, Janet was eager for curvy Barbie to be released. After removing the plastic, the two formed an instant bond. Unfortunately, their bond must remain temporary because Janet will be leaving at the end of this week to travel to her next destination.
|Dolled up Denim and Janet do display well together and could easily pass for mother and daughter. The curvy dolls' fashion looks better on her, in my opinion, without the mesh top.|
Curvy Barbie (breasts, waist, hips): 5-1/2 x 4-1/2 x 6-1/2 inches
Dasia (breasts, waist, hips): 7-1/2 x 7 x 8 inches.

|Gifts for Janet|
The erasers and mini Barbie were part of Janet's Easter basket goodies and will go with the other things I purchased for her to her final destination after her traveling concludes in September and she is sent to a forever home. The mini Barbie Janet holds in the second photo is mine (yes, I purchased two that day and opened mine to see the exact scale when it is held by Janet. (Had it not been for Janet, though.)
Earlier this month (can't blame Janet for this one), I was so enthused by CJ Starz Forever's restyling of DC Super Hero Girls Bumblebee that I scooted out to Target and found one in stock. She came home with me too. I'll provide a detailed post about my Bumblebee separately since this post is developing a lengthy life of its own.
