Barbie 110 Camera

My first camera, rediscovered and now, I am using it again!

When I was a little girl I loved Barbie dolls. I collected a lot of them. When I was nine or ten years old, there was a promotion that we could send three codes of whatever doll´s box. I always have been very careful with everything, so I cut my boxes for the codes and sent them. Later, I receive at my home a very pink Barbie Camera. It used 110 film cartridges. It was very common in those years.

I remember I did only one film, because the photos were a disaster. The camera has no flash, so the photos were very dark. Years ago, I found this camera with other old toys in my bedroom. Me and my little niece tasted the camera again. So we got 100mm film. Now is a little harder to find.

The results were like going back to childhood, but now knowing that we don´t take photos indoor with this little pink camera.This camera is now on the same shelf where my Barbie collection were which is presently replaced by my beautiful camera collection.

    this reminds me of a Polaroid i had when i was 9; it was left by my friend who was moving away. i never used it because the film was too expensive (this happened in the early 2000s)
