1980s Barbie Star Traveler Motor Home

The 1980s Barbie Star Traveler motor home was so cool
In addition to the Barbie Dream House, the Barbie Star Traveler Motor Home was yet another awesome toy I never owned. I believe my friend Robin may have had one in grammar school. I know someone had it and I loved it.

I think the worst part of those 1980s Barbie commercials were those damn little girls. They were always perfect-looking and adorable. It's as if they were rubbing it in and having the time of their damn lives playing with a toy you'd never own.

I would loved to have played with a Barbie Motor Home in our yard. My Smurfs would have really enjoyed dining in that kitchen on wheels. I could take the Barbie Motor Home to the beach in the summer or maybe even be daring and bring it into my snow forts. But no, no Barbie Star Traveler Motor Home for me.  My parents made it up to me by purchasing cars for me in college, so I can't even try to make them feel guilty.

I was more into Jem than Barbie, although I did have a few Barbies as a kid. I also had the Barbie Hot Dog Stand; I thought it was the coolest thing going because one of the stickers that went onto the barrel seats was for The Beach Boys which were my favorite band at the time. :)

My daughter didn't have this, it would have taken up way too much room.

I had this. My parents seemed to think it was an acceptable substitute for the Dream House that I really wanted. It was close, but not quite.

I didn't have this or the dream house! I had to use my brother's stupid GI Joe jeep to haul my barbies around. And I had to use a bookshelf to make my own dream house. I felt deprived! :)

I never had this but I so desperately wanted it! The closest I got was the pink Jeep.

I left you a little blog award today:

All I ever wanted was a fresh new big makeup barbie head that didn't have chopped off hair and mascara all over it boo hoo

Believe it or not, I got this for Christmas when I was 6-1979. My folks put this together at my grandparents house nearby. In about 2003, I was 30 at the time, my grandmother called to ask me if I still had my cherished Barbie motor home. Being an extremely spoiled only child, who has an overwhelmingly bad habit of holding on to anything & everything, I reassured her I did still have the motor home. She tells me to make sure to stop over soon because she had just found the BOX that it came in!! I of course had to see if it was true, & yes-almost 24 years later I got the original box it came in.
I guess you could say this apple didn't fall too far from the tree!
