The Toy Museum of Prague Castle is holding a Barbie exhibit in commemoration of this fashion doll’s 50th year. I am not a big fan of Barbie, nor Caity is. Can you believe she doesn’t own even a single Barbie doll? Hubby frowns at the thought of introducing Caity to Barbie. Haha! But our little girl knows her anyway from the movie Toy Story. We actually went there mostly for the other toys on display.
Welcome to the Toy Museum!
The museum also have vintage toys such as dolls, trains, boats, etc. some of which are part of the family collection of the film-maker and caricaturist Ivan Steiger. It was nice to see toys from decades back made in top quality and craftsmanship, unlike the mass-produced toys we have these days that are mostly made of plastics. (It will be a different post!)
Caity poses with the giant first-edition (1959) Barbie.
Let Caity take you on a Barbie tour. Okay? Take a seat, grab an apple and beware of excessive pictures and fashion overdose!
Retro vibe!!! Even the hairstyles! Super bongga!
Did you know that Barbie has a younger sister? If not, then now you know! Meet Skipper!
Some more of that retro look!
Festive, ostentatious clothes!
It seems like these are national costumes around the world.
Anyway, even if we were not Barbie fans, we still enjoyed the vast exhibit of various Barbies throughout the years. Coz you know, there were different themes and collections. It was such a delight to spot famous characters like Snow White, West Life, superheroes, political figures among a sea full of Barbies.
There are more pictures to post, so I’ll make part 2, and maybe even part 3 of 50 years of Barbie!
Can you tell which was the brown in this post? Caity’s leopard print leggings of course!
