Music: Chiquitita by ABBA
Well maybe I should
start out by telling you who she was once. Would you believe Barbie? In
1981 Mattel granted Takara Co. of Japan the right to use the "Barbie" name
to produce a doll for the Japanese Market. Takara's "Barbie" was very different
from the blond bombshell in Pink. She had large innocent eyes and a sweet
pouty mouth. But the best of times for Takara collectors soon became the
worst of times when in 1985, due to a licensing disagreement, Takara lost
the rights to use the "Barbie" name. Fortunately, however, Takara still
retained the rights to their doll and the search for a new name began.
The transformation was instantaneous, Barbie became Jenny... the rest (as
they say) is history.
Today, Jenny is a bustling
teen with way too many friends to count and yet she still finds time to
go to school (as a Junior), celebrate the the ancient Japanese traditions,
and even dye her hair a multitude of colors... You rock girlfriend!!!
is a list (in progress) of some of Jenny's friends:
Abel, Annie, Aya, Chelsea,
Charles, Erika, Elise, Ellie, Flora, Francois,
Over the last several weeks
I have made many new friends and re-discovered a few old friends who have
helped my collection grow. Please take a moment to visit their websites.
