I use to love Barbie while growing up. But now that I'm an adult I have noticed something that I don't think is my imagination. The quality of the doll or should of say her clothes are not a good as they use to be. It just seems as if the clothes aren't up to the standards that Mattel use to have. The irony is, that the doll as well as the clothes have gone up in price over the years. I still love Barbie, even as an adult I love this doll. I guess its because she is a fashion doll and I love fashion. I have even created my own clothes for her that I have sold in the past on eBay. Not to gloat about myself but I tend to think my clothing quality for her was better then what is being sold in the store these days. At least I take the time to make sure they fit her properly, not something that can be said about some of the clothes sold in stores.
