Black Magic! Cocktail Dress Barbie Casts a Dramatic Spell

By Chris Varaste

This year's Cocktail Dress Barbie® Doll has definitely cast a spell on me because of the way her platinum blonde hair contrasts with her dramatic black evening ensemble! The glam cocktail outfit also reminds me of Black Magic, another bewitching number from Barbie doll’s 1964 wardrobe.

There’s No Place Like Oz

By Matt Stevens

Living in Los Angeles definitely has its perks — the weather, the culture, and the occasional celebrity sighting. One of my more memorable, Wizard of Oz-related encounters occurred a few years ago at a neighborhood supermarket…

A Ticket to Adventure With Barbie® … No Packing Required!

By Tara Zucker

I love new experiences. In the past year alone, I’ve ruled a race of aliens from beyond the farthest galaxy, performed a passionate ballroom routine, and proudly represented District 12 with my archery skills. Oh, and I also became a vampire! What can I say? It’s been a busy year, and with Africa calling to me now, I’ll be globetrotting again before long.

Barbie®, a Bathing Beauty!

By Chris Varaste

This is the time of year when I start fantasizing about lounging about somewhere tropical, preferably poolside! Some sunblock and a pitcher of lemonade and I’m good to go! I imagine Barbie® is also due for some serious R & R — it’s definitely vacay time, especially after her exciting 2012 presidential campaign. All she has to do is pick the perfect paradise.

The Queen & I: Meeting Elizabeth Taylor

By Chris Varaste

Barbie Collector’s new White Diamonds Elizabeth Taylor Silkstone® doll, dazzling in her white dress, reminds me of working with the actress during the summer of ‘86. I was a production coordinator for Liberty Weekend, a four-day celebration of the restoration and centenary of the Statue of Liberty.

Tea for You, and Barbie Too!

By Chris Varaste

I have a favorite childhood memory from my days at The English School of Vienna, where the British staff would, as a daily custom, serve afternoon tea in lieu of lunch. Different from high tea, afternoon tea consists of a light meal served outdoors, preferably in a garden setting. While developing an appreciation for this tasty meal break, I made another discovery — Barbie® doll also enjoys sipping tea in the afternoon!
