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!


  1. Whoa, Justin Bieber has a nice computer. Cool find! The Moxie girls one is... interesting, lol. I'm the same way with art supplies. ;)

    ps- I love how you took the photos on your own laptop.

    pps- Windows over Mac, hands down!

  2. Hi Smidge Girl,

    I haven't done a set up or dio with my art supplies yet. All in good time! Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Hello from Spain: also the computers of the Barbies enchant to me. I always try to buy complements with computers or similars. Soon I use much in the Dioramas. My Barbies usually works much with the computers. The one that you painted in red you had left ideal. The one of the Liv is precious. In Spain almost they do not sell anything of the LIV. I am wishing to see the cameras that you are going to buy. We follow in contact of blog blog

  4. Hi Marta, I only have one camera in my collection so far, but I'm working on it!

  5. Hello. I just realized that I signed up to follow you a few weeks ago, but I haven't seen any of your posts in my blog reader. So I am playing catch up from my menu bar. I too have a ton of laptops. You can never have too many.

  6. Hey, Vanessa. My reader never works and half the time I cant see who is following me. Blogger has some wonks in it.

  7. I just discovered your blog and love it already! :D I'm going to read all your blog posts so far :)
    This was a really fun blog post, I also love it when a doll comes with tech stuff--especially laptops! :D
    I think Hi Glamm Julia would be a great doll for you, she comes with camera and laptop!

    1. Dailey Star, thanks so much for taking the time to read through my blog! I sure do appreciate it. I just did a image search for the doll you mentioned and I love her laptop, camera and eye glasses.
