Barbie dolls. Ever had one? It was crazy back in my time.
I remember how obsessed I was with them, and not only the dolls but with the accessories too… I was never the fancy one with the posh toys and I wished sooo much for whatever Barbie had, all of it! So when I got this Barbie car, the VW Beetle I wasn’t going to let it get away. Even if that meant making my little cousin cry… 🙁
But really now, he had his own car. Of course, it wasn’t pink and it didn’t write Barbie on it and it didn’t came with pink luggage and Coca-Cola cans or pink flowers… Because it was made for a girl, duh!
I got the car as present from my mothers’ cousin, at Christmas when I was in Paris many many years ago. I usually knew what I was gonna get for present, but this time I was completely blown away. Not only I had no idea about my present, but it was also what I had wished for for years and I just loved it! Words can’t express my surprise. So I wasn’t going to let anyone make me enjoy this less.
Still, he had his car received as a present, so that was and remained mine. As a proof, it’s still mine and I still play with it.
And the key ring, the little pink miniature VW beetle, is now holding my real car keys.
I’m never gonna give it away, it’s my perfect childhood memory and that’s why it’s part of my memories box!
