Earlier today my 4-year-old daughter told me how she likes Barbies. "Really?" I responded. And she nodded with a slight smile on her face.
I smiled as well - thinking about the Barbies I had when I was a child. I received my first Barbie in the early 70s and spent hours dressing her, making clothes for her with my grandmother, choosing accessories for her and setting up scenarios for her. My oldest daughter, who is now 18, loved Barbie as well. When she became old enough to appreciate the doll, I passed down some of the things I had saved from my Barbie dolls.
Now I'm wondering if it's time to start the serious Barbie tradition with my next daughter. I don't want to spend a lot of money on Barbie and her accessories because this daughter isn't as conscientious as her older sister, but I still need to "Shop Smart, Save Big." And it's that time of year: Purchasing fun stuff for the holidays.
I'm sure she would like 2009 holiday Barbie in her shimmering pink and gold lame gown. To find a great deal, I can use Shop.com, which is an easy-to-use online shopping comparison site.
