Van's Doll Treasures primarily features Barbie and other fashion dolls her size. I make and sell 1/6 scale doll furniture for Barbie and Ken. The link to my Etsy shop is available on the right hand side. I prepare dioramas and videos that feature my doll families.
I have been meaning to share these ladies in a tribute to our Armed Services, but I have always missed the opportunity. After seeing Ms. Leo's post about her acquiring the AA Aviator Barbie yesterday, I decided to share them today. Believe it or not they are still boxed. I have considered selling them as a set, because I think they are an awesome group. I also considered giving them to real women who serve or have served in the Armed Services. My best friend graduated from the Air Force Academy. Quite a feat for a 5"3", 100 lber (on a good day) African-American woman. I wanted to give her my Air Force doll. Wouldn't you know it, that is the only that is not African-American. Just as well, she hates Barbie. I also haven't deboxed them, because I would like to use them in their current state, as Armed Services women. I want to honor them. The opportunity to do so just hasn't arrived yet. But I feel confident that when the time comes, I will know what to do with them. Hey! I just remembered that I have a President Obama doll! Uh oh, I can see a glimmer of a story forming. Something with him honoring these ladies.... Hmmm. I will have to just let it take shape. Wow, that was quick. I have to go do some research, because I don't know enough about the Armed Services to do them justice.
