Dolls That Are Worth A 100 Year Wait

Both of these adorable dolls will make the Centennial Celebration of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. even more special this year!

Mattel will debut the limited edition 'AKA Barbie' - created in honor of the Centennial Celebration of the sorority next week. The doll will be reportedly available for sale on the Barbie Collector's site and Walmart stores nationally towards the middle of July. She's a cutie and will probably sell out quickly!

Currently available is 'Ivy Rose' - an elegant doll dressed in pink and green gown with a sweeping up-do (top picture). This beautiful doll was presented as a gift to Grammy Award attendees this year according to The Chicago Sun-Times.

'Ivy Rose' can be purchased from the Sisterhood Boutique.

Several years ago I purchased the first Byron Lars Barbie designer doll from my sister as a birthday present. I also have a few friends who are serious collectors of Black dolls.

If you are looking for a fun hobby (personally or to share with young girls in your family), collecting dolls may be for you!
