A beautiful Steffie faced doll from Lori, Christie is just so cute and her hair is great. It was wild but I tamed it a little, although it has real wire in it which is hard to tame :)
This Christie along with Pink & Pretty are just some of the most stunning dolls from the early 80's.
This lady is stunning, just perfect with thick hair. I didn't know what to dress in her in so tried this Twice as Nice outfit from my friend Lori (who I also got Tracy from) and she was turned in into a Latino looking goddess.

After a long spell of collecting Sindy & Barbie, I was looking for something in my (now) smaller Jem box. I thought as this is Barbie Vs Jem I would take a few pictures of the girls I now have. I have managed to get myself down to (pretty much) one of each doll as at one point I had 100+
These surviving girls are who I think are the prettiest ones of the dolls I had. More pictures to come so stay tuned...
Danse was one of the last Jem dolls I got as a kid, I don't think I played much with her as she is not amazingly beautiful like some of the other dolls but I have a great appreciation off her now. Her outfit is amazing, shame they didn't make her hair a bit longer like the cartoon version.
I don't believe Synergy was ever released in the UK so I never had her as a kid as I am sure I would have done, I don't think we got Jetta either but I may be wrong.
Synergy is such a cool doll as she is purple. Her outfit looks nothing like the one on the show, and makes her look like an 80's alien fitness instructor
Roxy was always a favourite doll for me and my sister as kids. This is the 2nd edition Roxy and she differs a little to my original 1st edition. My original girl had polker straight hair like my original Pizzazz. I do prefer the 2nd year dolls as they seem to move better and have nicer hair. I never got any of the 2nd year dolls as a kid as I wasn't keen on the clothes. I did get them again when I started to re-collect but again I didn't like the clothes so packed them off to someone that did ;)

Such a beauty!
Special Expressions Barbie is a Woolworth exclusive to the USA in 1992, my friend Lori had sent me a list of Steffie faced dolls and I just glanced over the name thinking she would have some sort of strange expressions face. How wrong I was, this beautiful girl arrived in the box and was a huge surprise. She is one of my favourite girls now and is clearly Whitney. She looks a lot like the rare Ultra Hair Whitney so maybe her face and makeup where re-used? She has the most beautiful hair as it's a light brown shade and so shiny & glossy. Thanks again to Lori :)
Peaches was a childhood favourite doll. Barbie was a great in 1984/5 and the UK was really pushing forward Barbie over Sindy and I was hooked as I was an easy influenced kid ;)
I won this girl with an 1987 Sindy for 99p, she is an original Peaches too. I spotted her her a mile off so was pleased that on one did as she is quite popular due to the re-release. I have had her a while but she gets to show her face here as my friend Lori sent me her outfit. Thanks Lori :)
Lights and Lace Teresa falls just out of my usual collecting era but I couldn't resist her. With her big brown eyes and masses of dark hair.
I am going to say nothing about the whole concept of this doll or what they dressed the poor thing in. The belt is the light and as for the oversized hairbow?!
A quick hair touch up, new dress and Jems earrings she looks a bit less like 80's Cyndi Lauper at a kids party! The dress is an outfit I loved as a kid and was a bargain at 50p from e-bay
I have wanted Sun Gold Malibu P.J. for ages. My good Barbie friend Lori found her for me, and while she doesn't have her bathing suit or accessories I think she looks great in my favourite Twice as Nice fashion. I would still like her mint sometime in the future.

Pink & Pretty Barbie was my favorite as a kid, My sister got her me a few years back in the box so I was happy. I then found a picture of Pink & Pretty Christie and instantly fell in love with her but not the cost. She was like $170+ in the box so I never dreamed I would get her.
My wonderful new Barbie pal said she had a spare so I jumped at the offer of owning her and she is now in my top 3 dolls!
She had rather thick matted hair at first, I tried a makeover but I still wasn't happy with the results as it was all bushy and hard to manage. I boiled the kettle ready to straighten it.
When I nervously poured the water over her head, all the fuzz seemed to disappear and keep the beautiful wave to it. I have never tried this method on Barbie before but it worked and gave me the perfect result.
I have wanted Perfume Pretty Whitney for a long time,I had Perfume Pretty Barbie as a kid and I got her again a few years back but she had rubbish hair so I sold her on. On the back of the box it showed the beautiful Whitney doll and I have wanted her since. With the help of my new Barbie friend who is also a Steffie Faced collector I managed to get her loose as she is hard to find in the UK and she is a stunner.
She needed a little hair makeover (as she had toybox hair LOL) but it came out well considering that they used 2 fabrics for her hair and the lighter highlights are made from fuzzy material!
Benntton Teresa is quite stunning and not a doll i really knew about as she falls just out of my 80's era of collecting. A new Barbie friend suggested her to me as I was buying a few Steffie faced dolls from her. I am glad I took her up on the offer as she is quite stunning and unusal. With her stunning hair and beautiful eyes she certainly stands out as does her outfit.
