World's Smallest BARBIES!

World's Smallest: Barbie 1959 & Barbie 1971 - Super Impulse Toys 2017

I come from a family of collectors. My Dad Collects Coins and Bank Notes, My Mom and sister collect dolls, my younger brother collects Peanuts and Classic TV, and my older brother is into Star Wars and Rock and Roll. (I put them all to shame though with my myriad of collecting obsessions. I only dwell on the action figures here, but I have an abundance of unrelated collections active right now. But I digress). This past Christmas I was back home and my Mom was sharing her newest obsession, World's Smallest. For those unaware, World's Smallest is a line of tiny collectible miniatures of classic toys. She had a handful of nostalgic Fisher-Price toys, each about the size of a quarter, and we were all very enthralled and ready to all start our own collections. Since that first exposure I see them everywhere: Toys R Us, Target, Cracker Barrel, and every little novelty store I come across. There are even blind boxes at Claires! But I wasn't too tempted to buy any until I saw these two Barbies in TRU a few weeks ago.

I don't have any Barbies in my collection (which I always thought was a shame since she's so iconic) and in the past few years I've really been cultivating my love for tiny 1:28 scale figures, so these two little ladies were perfect additions to my collection. And the fact that they are retro is just icing on the cake. Let's check out these World's Smallest Barbies below!

These Barbies stand at 2.75" tall.

They each feature 5 points of articulation.

They each also come with a tiny pair of sunglasses. The sunglasses do not fit on their heads. They are permanently folded up and can only be held by wedging her hand into the gap.

Time for a Comparison Pic!
