BARBIE: A Rare Beauty - Book Review

Book Synopsis:

Barbie Millicent Roberts, better known as Barbie doll, is recognized internationally for her small stature, love of all things pink, and those tiny high heels. She is so popular that three Barbie dolls are sold every second. To showcase Barbie's rise to fame, Sandi Holder, celebrated Barbie doll expert and owner of Doll Attic, created BARBIE: A Rare Beauty.

Filled with vivid photos and vintage Barbie dolls, BARBIE: A Rare Beauty includes many never-before-seen items, plus an up close and personal look at the believed #1 Ponytail Barbie.

My Review:

I know there are die-hard Barbie fans and collectors out there. I'm not one of them. However, I enjoyed playing with Barbies as a kid and buying them for my girls when they were littler. Even now, I like browsing through the toy section in stores to see the new Barbies that are available.

Looking at all the illustrations and reading about Barbie in the book, BARBIE: A Rare Beauty, was a fun journey. This coffee-table book is loaded with facts and information about the legendary icon. All of my girls even enjoyed reading the book and it is one I plan on keeping. Every time I look through the book, it seems there's something new I learn, having missed it the first time through. I've had guests over who've picked up the book and started glancing through it. It's a trip down memory lane for some. The cover design and overall look of the book make it one worth keeping out on the coffee table.

I received book for review from Meryl L. Moss Media Relations. The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way. Please do your own research before purchasing products. Your opinions and results may differ.
