Yay Collectibles: Laptops!
Without a doubt, my number one play item to collect is laptops. I'm an electronics junky at heart and I'm more apt to buy a doll or accessory pack if it comes with some type of tech item. I have to be on my computer a lot, so I guess I just like to see my dolls working on theirs too. I've only been collecting dolls and such since early this year. Here's what I got so far!
From Barbie I Can Be A Computer Engineer. This was all hot pink. I painted it red and black and stuck a Windows desktop on the screen. It came with a laptop bag so I painted that too.
From LIV Tech Time Pack. No modifications were made. I thought about doing something to that keyboard, but I let it go... for now.
From Barbie Basics Look 01 Pack. I made the keys black, but that's the only modification. It's got a pretty big slit in the side so I can change the screen easily, but so far, it's cool as is.
From Justin Bieber Fashion Pack. Hands down my favorite. It's a great replica of a Mac laptop and even has the side ports and disc tray. It already came with the keys black, so I just darkened in the ports. I know it's sacrilege to put a Windows screen on a Mac, but I like Windows, ok? The Justin Bieber signature logo was on the back in purple, but a little acetone got rid of that.
From Power Team Elite S.W.A.T. How dismal. Power Team produces some great realistic military accessories. That their laptop is just photos stuck inside a case is disappointing.
From Moxie More2Me Set. Umm. Yeah. Considering it's supposed to be a 2-in-1 item and the other side is a boom box, I guess it's okay. I think that when I get around to making a refrigerator, I will put this on the door.
I'm fairly pleased with the ones I have, so I don't think I'll buy a doll pack anymore just because it has a laptop in it. The next thing I want is cameras!
