Houses et al 1995 to 1999

Kelly started out as about 1 year old
when she was first introduced in 1995.
The Movie Theatre is one of Mattel's cleverest inventions.
Through a series of mirrors, the dolls can actually watch a movie or TV show.
Some of the accessories you see with Pet Doctor Barbie are hers
and others are just pieces I've accumulated.
Note that the fabric used in the 1992 Teen Talk Barbie
was reused for Pizza Party Skipper's and Courtney's uniforms.
Barbie and Stacie have invited over Ken and Tommy for Thanksgiving.
I don't know about Barbie, but it was difficult
to squeeze Ken into the Sports Cruiser! 
Since my Baywatch dolls are still in their boxes,
I am just showing you the Jeep.
The Powhatan Village is an elaborate Disney playset.
