  1. I had the first Barbie, Ken, Midge, Allan, and Skipper. Skipper came out when I was 12 and was the last one in my little collection. I also had loads of clothes. When I came home to visit in my late teens, just before my parents sold their house, I discovered my mother had “got rid” of all of them without consulting me. I was devastated.

    • Not all of them a few barbies from the 1980s and 1990s and a few big dolls. Which ones are you looking for. I see Babies at sales I go to. I can keep an eye out if I see any
