Products from the past

It is so cool to come across old promotions and products! Case in point, did you know that in 1993 we did a Paint 'N Dazzle™ Barbie® doll with Mattel? That's right, the queen of all dolls was sportin' her own custom painted Tulip® Fabric paint creations! See?


There were several variations of this Barbie® as well with different outfits that came with! You can see them on the back of this box (click on the pic to enlarge!) How great is the styling of the girls on the packaging? Pretty fantastic, don't you agree?
Oh and check it out! There even was a Paint n' Dazzle™ car!
And would you really think Ken® would miss out on this action! Of course not. In fact, he invited over his buddies for a fashion painting party! See?
Ken® is breaking out the stonewash and studded puffy jacket. He looks a little Andrew Dice Clay-like, does he not?

And for you enjoyment, there even was an over-the-top commercial! We love it!!


There was one for the car too! How cool that you could personalize your Barbie® car!!!



Do you remember this doll and customizing it with Tulip® paints? We'd love to hear your stories! Please leave a comment below!!

  1. How awesome! I don't remember the doll, but I was definitely a kid when it hit shelves. I remember many fun-filled hours making custom-painted clothing!~
