like most girls I had a few Barbies in my life. But sadly I can only remember two that held a place in my heart.
One was Golden Dream Barbie she was given to me by my mother. I don’t have a photo of me with her but I am sure there is one, it just hasnt turned up yet.
Barbies were quite exspensive when I was growing up.
So I only would get a new one on christmas or special occasions. One that sticks in my mind the most is when I went to Philadelphia to visit my relatives there. My grandparents Mcgee came to take my brother and I out for dinner and we went shopping and they bought us new pjs and a toy. While walking down the Barbie aisle
My grand mother Mcgee ask me what doll I wanted I told her I had to wait for santa to come and bring my Barbie.She laughed and told me that was nonsense, I could have one if I wanted one. So I picked the Western Barbie doll.
My grandma found her horse and said “Oh look Danielle, we are taking him too!”Psss She didnt know Dallas was a girl horse:) I felt like the luckiest little girl in the world.
The Western Barbie had a button in the back that you pressed and She would wink and stamp her autograph on the little photos of herself.
Dallas was one of the prettiest doll horses I have ever seen. I taught my self how to braid on her beautiful mane.
