Introducing Featured Collector Series

Featured Collector Series Video ScreenshotNext week we will begin to feature Barbie Collectors. I’ve learned that we love to share our collections and  to get to know more about other collectors and their collections.  Often we don’t know anyone else personally who collects and our friends & family just don’t get it!
