#Barbie #Doll #Collection and lecture today in North Jersey

An afternoon with an American icon -

New Yorker Carolynn Whitford, known in the Barbie-collecting community as BarbieZania, will be giving a presentation on Barbie and Ken this Saturday at 11 a.m. at the North Arlington, NJ Public Library on Ridge Road. She started collecting Barbie dolls in 1999, and now has between 200 and 300 dolls.

Barbie first made her debut on March 9, 1959 by famous toy company Mattel. Throughout the years, Barbie has been an airline stewardess, ballerina, astronaut and politican—and that doesn't include her informal wear.

"I don't think being a collector is about how many you have," Whitford said. "You don't have to go after the most expensive or the most limited. You collect what you like."
