Myer is something of a “luxury department store.” My local store has two floors of products -mostly clothing, best suited to rich middle aged women, but also technology, pyjamas, and best of all, TOYS!
The Barbie aisle at Myer is particularly big, and it’s always filled with products that have long left other stores. I usually don’t make an effort to visit Myer because the prices are RIDICULOUSLY EXPENSIVE (when you can just buy the same thing elsewhere for a lower price), and it’s also a giant maze and I
usually almost always get lost.
However, today I made an exception because I wanted to see if there were any new products. Myer sometimes has “exclusive” products, such as a few Barbie Collector dolls, that aren’t sold anywhere else in the state. Neat, huh? (Too bad they’re $100+ just for Pink Label dolls…)
Here we have the Pizza Chef doll -I’m honestly not sure if I’ve seen this one before irl, or if I’ve just seen lots of advertisement for it.
Here we have the Gigi Hadid and Wonder Woman Collector dolls. These were a big surprise; even though we get Collector dolls at Myer sometimes, they aren’t always readily available. Today I was lucky, because there were loads!
This was my first time seeing the astronaut and space scientist dolls. It’s unfortunate you have to buy both at the same time!
Over here we have lots of playsets. I’ve seen all these before, so they were NBD.
Heaps of Fashionistas! I have literally never seen this many Fashionistas, in one store, at the same time before.
EVEN MORE! Two of these dolls I had never seen before -the one with the emoji vest, and the tall girl with the short hairstyle.
Some more guys… I honestly can’t remember if I’ve seen these before, I don’t really pay attention.
Lots of new Dreamtopia dolls, including the curvy mermaid. I was really interested in the princess, the one with the dark hair.
This one here! Unfortunately, she was $20+ and I can’t really justify paying that for such a plain doll. Hopefully she will release in other stores soon…
A new curvy fairy doll. I don’t really like her.
Another new fairy. This one is a bit too “rainbow” for me!
I was going to buy this Fashionista, but I didn’t end up getting her. She’s cute, but she’s not that cute, and I can’t justify having one million Fashionistas lying around I don’t use.
This Dreamhorse was totally new for me! I have seen her online a few times, it seems like she has lots of actions. Not really my style anymore, but a fun gimmick.
This must be the new version of the Dreamtopia castle. It’s cute, I prefer it over the last version. I don’t think there was a Barbie castle available when I was younger -I would have loved this! Princess stories were always my favourite.
Here we have the animal rescuer playset, that one was totally new for me as well. It’s got lots of accessories, but nothing I would use personally.
Above that is the Dreamtopia Sweetville Carriage. I haven’t seen that before, not even online, so that was a surprise. I don’t really like the horse, it looks a bit stiff, I would have preferred a mane made out of real hair.
Over on the left was a Birthday Wishes doll -she’s cute, but not worth the price! Her face is a bit bland.
Above that is some Star Light Adventure dolls. I also saw some Spy Squad dolls, but I forgot to photograph them. It makes me wonder ‘why are these still here?’
I really wanted this Club Chelsea two-doll pack, because both of the girls are super cute, but it was $26. For two small dolls! What a rip-off.
I also saw a new fashion pack -I liked the dress, but the bathing suit is a bit weird. Why is there that extra fabric along the bottom?
Finally, I saw the Ballet Wishes doll (cute, but again, not my style) and the Totally Hair Barbie doll. I was tempted to get the Totally Hair Barbie back in 2017, but now I’m glad I didn’t. She would just sit on a shelf and gather dust!
Whew! What a lot of items! I’ll definitely have to check out Myer more often! It’s nice to have a look, even if everything is ridiculously over-priced. If I ever get a gift card, I know where I’m headed!
