    I go camping every summer with my family. I used to love Barbies. I had a bunch of them and was always playing with them!!!

  2. What a great giveaway! Thank you for the chance.

  3. Amy Kaufman says

    I grew up going camping.. and have extended that love of the outdoors to my family now. I taught my husband how to camp and also my girls! This summer we drove from Minnesota to Yellowstone and back. We loved spending time outdoors. And.. guess who joined us for the car ride? Barbies!! I love Barbies and I think my daughters play with them each and every day. This summer I surprised them with sewing two wedding dresses for their Barbies complete with wedding Satin!

  4. I remember getting handy me down barbie clothes from the 70s – wish I had kept them!

  5. Teri says

    I loved Barbie growing up. I remember having a 5 gallon paint bucket full of them. Camping also was a big part of my childhood though it has died off a little as an adult. We typically go to state parks for the day and hike, play, etc but do not stay over night.

  6. sarah shult says

    I LOVED my barbies when I was little. My neighbor had the coolest house for her barbies that her dad made for her out of boxes – nothing like the dream house our girls have now, but it was just as fun to play with!

  7. I remember playing with Barbie all the time when I was little my favorite accessories were my Barbie Bronco and the Barbie McDonalds (growing up the closest McDonalds was an hour a way so, going there was something special). As far as camping I have gone camping every summer since before I can remember with my grandparents, it is something I still enjoy and now get to share with my daughter.

  8. Tanaya Syx says

    We take the kids on camping trips every May and September. We take them to hike the mountains and waterfall trails.

  9. Wendy says

    Growing up I always spent my summers with my father & we always went camping. We stayed at the same campground and the exact same lot back in the corner. I didn’t realize then how many memories were being created but I have tons of them! Staying at the pool all day with no SPF, getting poison ivy, snipe hunting are just a few of the most memorbale times.

  10. Terri Lewis says

    I use to play Barbies with all of my friends while we would do each others hair too. I also use to go camping with my family and was allowed to bring a friend. Wow, was that fun!!

  11. Kimberly B. says

    I didn’t have very many Barbies so I was always excited to go to my cousin’s house because she had lots of them.

  12. evans s says

    I remember getting my daughter her first Barbie. I had to go to two stores before I found a Black Barbie for her birthday present. Now she has several and I love watching her play with them.
    The only time I’ve been camping was during high school. We’ve been trying to get a chance to go camping but the whole family is never together at one time for all of us to go.

  13. Farrah Leigh Thomas McDaniel says

    I can remember camping when I was just an itty bitty girl. I still love it and I want my babies to experience it. Seeing all the national parks is a dream of mine!

  14. Mandy says

    The one time I encouraged my mom to go camping, it rained. She never went again. 🙂

  15. bernadette callahan says

    I had tons of barbies growing up. We used to play out in the front yard all the time! Thats probably my most fondest memory and we were out there all day everyday! 🙂

  23. Kimberly McCullers says

    Fishing is a tradition in our family. We still go to my parents house to fish…my teenagers, my 7 year old niece, my sister my parents and me. The best photo I got of my son, he was about 6 years old it was a close up, there was a beautiful green algae in the corner of the lake that just REALLY made for a fantastic background.

  24. Fawn H says

    brittneydejajason at gmail dot com

    I played with barbies forever and now I love playing with the girls I babysit for. My dads family goes camping every year and one of our favorite traditions is having fun contests in the lake! Thanks for the giveaway!

    I dont remember that far back. lol. i do know I didnt get my first Barbie till I was almost 12 and by then was not into them. I do have 4 girls and we had Barbie pink and purple EVERYTHING around out house forever…one daughter is 19 years older than our youngest, now 12. Cant imagine our lives without Barbie toys! Also, we are big into nature and fishing/camping and would love this for my grand daughter who is just 6. Her dad is going to be a game warden so they are HUGE into fishing and outdoors!

    I remember coming home from my grandparents on Christmas Eve. And there it was…a giant (to me) Barbie house! I was so thrilled. It was the first Christmas present I really remember being THRILLED with.

    I loved Barbies growing up. I had a Barbie Townhouse that I loved playing with because it had an elevator that I thought was the coolest thing back then. 🙂

  160. Leila Bona says

    My favorite memory playing with my Barbies is that I always imagined them to have a gigantic house and a fabulous job! Then I would dress them in the wackiest clothes! We don’t really have any camping memories just yet..hope to soon though!!

    I used to have a three story barbie house and I loved to play with them in it. Our family goes camping on the fourth of july each year at the beach with about 6 other families and we have been doing this for the past 7 years.

  163. ali jarman says

    y mother made me a barbie doll house when i was little, and some of my fondest memories were playing with my barbies in it!

  164. Tracie Seiser says

    My favorite memory of playing with my Barbie’s is: My brothers are 4 & 5 years younger than me and I always made them play with my Barbies. I only had one Ken doll so they would fight over who got to be Ken, ha, ha.

    We go on a family camping trip every year and now that both of my boys are grown, we try to take the nieces and nephews with us. We now have a granddaughter who will be able to come along with us starting next summer.

  165. Brittany says

    Mydaughter is 3 and is just getting in to barbies. This is one she wants to add to collection

  166. My favorite barbie memories were playing literally from after breakfast until bedtime with our barbies with my sister and sometimes my mom would even play with them with us for a few hours.

    But my most MEMORABLE memory with barbies was when I was about 4 or 5 I had a favorite barbie I brought her literally everywhere with me. My parents rented a cottage on the lake in Norhtern MI and I was playing in the shallow water with my favorite barbie in her swimsuit and I was letting her “swim” float on the waves and a seagull swooped down and flew off with her across the lake, I was screaming and crying so hysterically my dad and uncle hurriedly put me in their fishing boat and made the motor go fast as they could as we chased the seagull across the lake and at one point he dropped her into the lake so we thought we were going to get her but before we could reach her he swooped down and picked her up again and then he flew out over the other side of the lake out into the woods so I lost her forever.
    As traumatic as it was at the time its something the whold family including me laughs about a lot now.

  167. Pauline says

    we go camping once every two years

  168. Cee Love says

    As a kid and secretly as an adult I have always loved the tiny little food and refrigerator and appliances barbie has. for my family we went camping ever summer with like half the neighborhood as well. it was a neighborhood tradition, not just a family one.

  169. Candice HopperOwrey says

    All of my barbies had jobs and a history. I kept a journal about their different occurances in life so I didn’t get them mixed up.

  170. Mary L Cottingham says

    favorite memory of playing with Barbie? My mom and dad built a Barbie town house for me one Christmas from plans in Better Homes and Gardens. It was so much cooler than the one from store… plus in converted to a bookcase perfect for Seventeen and Mademoiselle magazines once I was out of the Barbie phase.

    Does your family have any camping traditions? I believe in my mother’s camping philosophy…. camping is a hotel without room service. Princess Peanut, my niece (age 5), on the other hand, loves camping.

  171. I really liked your blog.Thanks Again. Fantastic.
