Barbie Country Camper

This wave of Barbie nostalgia was started with a visit to Thrift Town. I was happily browsing when I found this Barbie Country Camper.

I owned a Barbie Star Traveler when I was a kid, but my friend, Kirstie Salamanikas, had a Barbie Country Camper just like this one. My Barbie is happy to rest here, don’t you think?

Kirstie’s camper didn’t have this awkward orange plastic thing on the side. It just opened up there. I suspect it had been removed after a fatal tear like this one has. I think it’s supposed to be a tent of some sort or maybe a sleeping area.

  1. WOW! What a treasure-and to find it with a windshield and steering wheel!!!!! The vintage Barbie items are the BEST-the graphics are definitely something to share with today’s girls. I prefer the “vintage” over the new stuff any day. Thanks for sharing!
