I opened up my Barbie Collection.Com summer catalog today and they are selling a line of "Malibu Ave Market" play sets for $24.99 that I have not seen in stores. Mattel.com is also selling them, but theirs come with dolls included for $34.99, however, they are currently out of stock.
All these photos are from Mattel so you can see the dolls:
The pink coloring and all Caucasian dolls aside, these are some cool looking sets! We all know I'm not paying that much for them, but oh boy, when they go on clearance, I want every one! They are compact, well designed and have quite the panache. I'm actually impressed.
Has anyone purchased one, or heck, even seen one? Are they flimsy or of good quality? Anyone got the scoop?
