I remember the distinctive plastic smell of a new Barbie case under the Christmas tree when I was young ... it was one of the most thrilling smells of the season.
This design would have been five to ten years before my time (I was a 70's kid) but I love the illustration, and I haven't seen too many cases in this blue color.
Check out that swinging babydoll dress! Psychedelic, kitty cat.
This post goes out to Twyla and Lindsey, my two favorite Barbie-crazy blogger gal pals.
