FAO Schwarz toy store has turned their 150th anniversary into a festival of dolls. Not only do they have a special display of Robert Tonner dolls up to observe the historic anniversary, but FAO has a new selection of anniversary dolls in various shapes and sizes to commemorate their first century and a half in the toy business.
The oldest toy store in the US as well as the most famous is FAO Schwarz, which was founded in 1862. Now the world-renowned top store is celebrating its 150th anniversary with the FAO Schwarz 150th Anniversary Barbie Soldier Doll.
FAO Schwarz featured a special display of Robert Tonner dolls this month for Fashion Week in conjunction with FAO's 150th Anniversary. The exhibit called “A Fashionable Collection of Tonner Dolls,” will run through October 16 and can be viewed online at FAO.com. Items from the exhibit will also be featured on the company’s timeline at Facebook.com/FAO.
Founded in 1997, the Belle Meade Plantation Belles Barbie Doll Club and their guests celebrated the doll collectors club 15th anniversary on September 6 at Shoney's in Bellevue. Tables were full of dolls, door prizes, and goodies.
All guests and members received a free Barbie Basics doll for attending.
The first Monday in September is set aside as a special holiday from work and has become the annual United States federal holiday known as Labor Day. Who needs to celebrate Labor Day more than Barbie? Barbie has had more careers than anyone else in the known universe!
