New Mattel Releases

My Walmart has completely revamped their toy isles and shockingly, the Barbie stuff is no longer at the front of the center isle. It's been moved all the way to the end of the row. How very curious! Anyway, with the revamp came some new items:
I was messing with the box and the arms can only be pushed down. You cant raise them up or put them in any other position. Hopefully they were just tied down and that's why I couldn't move them.
I like this face. She reminds me of the youngest Obama daughter.
But uh, that's not where your heart is.
This looks pretty neat! I like the brick detailing and the burner and pot are stylized as well. The fact that it's not pinked out is also a surprising bonus.

Well, it's pink, lol, but they had to make something pink, I guess. It does have a nice register and cute deserts going for it.

Yes, very nice! Something I would expect to see at an amusement park or at the beach. I could have done without the Barbie logo on the awning, but you are either going to get pink or the logo. Thems the rules.

The prices are about average but I don't see why the addition of play doh makes the Spaghetti Chef cost 5 dollars more.

Dolls & Collectibles at Barnes & Noble

Barnes & Nobles is the main pit stop on my walk route because they have the nicest bathroom with warm water and actual paper towels instead of blowing hand dryers. I can also play Pokémon Go while in the bathroom because it's also a Poke Stop... too much info? Yes, probably.

Anyway, they have a HUGE variety of doll and collectible items, including some imports that you usually only see at comic book stores. Here's a looksee:

A Quick Stop at Target

Last week it was Walmart's Sparkle stuff and this week, here are some of the Barbie clothing and dolls I saw on the shelves at Target. I was in a hurry so I didn't get all up close and personal with items, so I don't know if the fashions are half patterned as usual.

This is the only one where I like every single item

For $19.99, I say that's actually a decent price for a doll and three fashions. More than I would want to spend, of course, but a good bargain if you're okay with paying full price. They could have thrown in one more pair of shoes though.
