Toys are extremely precious for children and they are possessive about their favorite ones. As a child, I was lucky enough to have quite a few of them but there was one which I absolutely adored. It was a Barbie doll which was gifted to me by my parents.
I still remember that first advertisement of Barbie dolls in my country when they were just launched by Leo Mattel in India. It had a lovely music and displayed “the Happy Birthday Barbie”, which was wearing a pink gown with white polka dots. The doll had long golden hair and was even wearing matching pink sandals. I saw the ad every time it appeared on the TV and longed to have that doll myself. I was after my parents to get it for me which I didn’t get for a long time. Finally, I was gifted the very same doll by my parents.
I just loved everything about it- the dress, the hair and its beautiful features. I would comb it, bathe it and even made it sleep in the night. It was a special toy as it was different and unique as compared to any other doll available in those days. None of my friends had a Barbie which made me a proud owner of this English doll. There were extra dresses for Barbie with matching foot wear also available in the market and it was fun to change the dresses and make different hair styles. I spent most of my time playing with Barbie whenever i was home and it became my favorite possession.
