This book isn't actually worth it. Most of the names are messed up for the Barbies, or there are several barbies that are the same (same outfit, hair, accessories, etc.) that have different names. Even though it's supposed to cover all barbies until 2007, most of the lists stop at 2001, and I know that there were other dolls made after these lists stop, since I personally own some of them. And there are so many missing dolls, it's not even funny. Most of the ones I bought this book to look up aren't even in the book! And I know that they exist because I have all of their stuff, their name and all their information. I was very disappointed in this book. Was so happy to find one that showed the dolls in the 90s and 2000s, since most of the books either stop in the late 80s, and half the dolls from the 90s and early 2000s are missing.
I was under the impression there were pictures on EVERY page, but was very wrong. Kind of hard to figure out the value of a Barbie if there are no pictures. Half the time I'm researching for a visual to make sure I'm valuing the correct one. I wouldn't waste any money on this book.
I thought this book might have some photos of the Barbie Gang that I didn't already have, considering the title, 'A comprehensive Listing...', but was dismayed to find that in a 313 page book, there are only 53 pages of photos, and those are rather small and difficult to discern any detail. If you are looking for about 300 pages of words describing the fashions, the dolls, furniture, etc. and the prices they may or may not be worth, than by all means get this book. But, if you are like me and just wanted photos of Barbie and her world, Skip This Book! I am glad I only paid 1 penny for it, but had I known it was just a bunch of lists I never would've spent even that much.
There were hardly any pictures. Wish I would have saved the money for something better.
great book to see what your barbies are worth, FAST SHIPPING! [email protected]
W h at I was looking for thanks
It's kind of confusing to find the right doll I'm looking for. More pictures and less of the etc would be better. I bought is to find the value for dolls not all the other stuff.
Great addition to my daughter's collection
