I had those same experiences with barbie. I had one real barbie and many fake barbies. I never got the dreamhouse or the cars but we loved our barbies! I was SO MAD when my mom gave them all away (we were teens) because I wanted to keep them for my girls someday. I like those barbie movies too! I didn't like the swan lake one though. That one was too disturbing and creepy.
Sorry....but no Barbie fans here. My little girl does not play with the few we have from a garage sale.
