It was  honored when invited to give a Barbie presentation on March 9, 2023, "National Barbie Day" (aka Barbie's Birthday), at Paradise Village in San Diego, California. I set up a cute display of dolls from my collection, representing Barbie's early years. I had a lot of fun talking about Barbie, and the guests were served pink-frosted Barbie cookies and pink rose wine!
