80’s Memories {Loving You Barbie}

Over the weekend I found this little stamp in the desk drawer downstairs. This silly little stamp is so old! And it still works! It came with a Barbie I had when I was little. I looked it up online and found it’s Loving You Barbie from 1983. I would have been 8. Maybe I bought it with birthday money? I remember often going to KB Toys at the mall, on a Friday night probably, and looking at Barbies. I had Skipper too. I really liked her and this was my other favorite. I don’t remember much about the others we had but Julie & I had a lot of Barbies!
I found the rest of the pictures online. This one shows her necklace. I’m pretty sure she had one.

See the little stamp?? I remember the little white pencil with the hearts {or I love you’s?} on it but I don’t’ remember the rest of the things.  I just loved her dress with all the velvety hearts on it. And her little white heel shoes.  Wish I still had this Barbie! Mom gave all our Barbies to our cousin once {While we were gone! We didn’t know until later and we weren’t happy!} Oh well, can’t save everything forever. Great memories though. I have no idea how I’ve held on to this little stamp for about 28 years??

Wow, I was looking through an old box at my mom’s and found a bunch of my old Barbies. As soon as I saw this one, I was transported back to childhood… Exactly 8 years old as well. I even found the little heart shaped notebook along with it. I had to look it up online because I could not remember her name which is how I came to your post. How nostalgic. Loving You Barbie was my favorite!!

@annabelle, Agree. Loving You Barbie has no necklace.And you're right, maybe that necklace belongs to Crystal Barbie or Pink N Pretty Barbie.

I really don't think Mom gave them away. The way I remember it--cousin took them! All those handmade items from Evelyn too. I still don't understand why something wasn't said.
