Post-apocalyptic Barbieland fallout - Meet Sindy

Hi everybody!
The last post seemed to cause a little distress. A number of readers were very concerned about the welfare of Barbies due to the conversion of Barbie-land to Willow Ridge.
To reassure everyone, I invited Sindy, the realtor for the Middle doll community, to give you some information.
(You know, in hindsight, it would have been a lot smarter to have met at her office! I forgot how big the Middle dolls are!)
With a little creativity and the moving of furniture, we made it work.
I would like to introduce Sindy. She has been a resident of Oak Leaf for about 37 years! Sindy is one of the original "Barbie" sized dolls that remain from Builder Sam's childhood.
(Geez, thanks Isabelle, now everyone knows I am the old lady around here!)
I look pretty good for a nearly forty year old doll huh? Anyway, I just want to assure you all that the Middle doll community still exists and continues to thrive! We have not been eliminated or packed away. "Barbie-land" was just an overflow town, created for play by human children.
Thank you all for being so concerned about our welfare! We have more than enough room for our homes and recreation.
Well, I hope this allays your fears as Willow Ridge begins its transformation.
Merry Christmas to all.
Isabelle and Sindy


  1. Ahh... all is well... what a relief! ;O) Thanks to Sindy and to you, Isabelle - but now I have a new sorrow: Hopefully Sindy's neck is well again? *grin*


  2. that is wonderful. Dixie (my resident brownie) was upset because the residents of Barbietown had heard of the rumors of Barbieland and were going to petition the Baroness to allow the residents to come and live in Barbietown . (No one does anything in Barbietown with the 'Baroness' permission, she is the diva doll, lol) Dixie is relieved she does not have to be granted and audience with her highness....We are glad the Middle dolls have a safe a happy place to reside in Willow Ridge!

  3. Hello Isabelle and Sindy,
    I am glad all is well in both lands.
    big hug

  4. Yes, Barbie and her crew can unexpectedly take over, lol. That Sindy doll is gorgeous.

  5. I am happy that the Middle dolls will still have a place to call home! I and the residents of Hanaly Corners look forward to seeing the transition of Barbieland to Willow Ridge now that we know the former residents have a place to call home! We know what a challenge it is to find space for everyone! Merry Christmas to you all!

  6. Well it looks like all is well with all in Oak Leaf, that's good news. :) Glad you put all those that were worried at ease.

    Happy Christmas!

  7. Cute post. How nice that you still have your Sindy doll! :)

  8. Happy New Year to you all!

  9. Having both lands is definitely best. We have the same thing going on around here. :)

  10. Sindy and Issabelle are sooo cute when they're together ^^
    Funny story! ♥

  11. I love the detailed little office!
