So we kind of have two Throwback Thursday themes going today thanks me not following my own notes a few weeks back. Think of it as two throwbacks in one! We have retired floral outfits and your first doll today.

 Starting with retired florals…

And now for your first doll…

This is my first doll, American Girl Look Alike, Julie. She is wearing the retired look alike meet outfit and the blonde braided headband. She is already preparing for next Christmas by looking up fun and yummy doll treats in her book! –From Ella

?Hi!  This is SarahAndMolly!  The picture is of my first Barbie doll, Ariel.  She is a pink Picture Pocket Barbie with blue eyes, light skin, and blonde hair.  The shirt is the one she came in, and she also came in a matching skirt and pink tennie shoes.  The shirt and skirt had clear plastic pockets on the front, and in the back of the box there was a cardboard sheet of pop-out pictures to go in the pockets.  I got her for Christmas when I was…I think 5, which was in 1999.  The Picture Pocket Barbies were available, if I remember correctly, from when I was about 4 to 6 years old, so 1998 to 2000.  I bought those pants at a garage sale many years later.  Her hair is a matted mess, but I love her.  Thanks for doing Throwback Thursdays!  I love them!
