B'huetiful in Your Skin Month! Mattel & BDA Present a Barbie in your likeness!

  • Jun 30, 2013 · 7:00 PM

To ensure she arrives on time, design & buy your doll no later than[masked]

This ONLINE NATIONAL Black Doll Affair is for Black Dolls, Baby Dolls, Porcelain Dolls &  Community Dolls ALL around the country.

Meetup online!

 

Did hue know that June is "Beautiful in Your Skin" Month?

Yep, that's right! We've got an entire month to celebrate the skin we're in! Keep reading to the bottom to learn how The Black Doll Affair and its dolling partner, Mattel Toys {makers of Barbie}, will celebrate the occasion.

 

 

Please note, that your Black Doll 15% Mattel Store Discount codewill not work/does not apply to the Styled by Me doll promotion because of the personalization and customization cost of the product. However, if you buy something in addition to your Styled by me Barbie, hue can use your Black Doll Affair Mattelstore.com discount of 15% off.

Celebrate this b'huetiful month by designing, a Barbie Doll that celebrates your very unique style and flair! When you're done, go ahead and name her after you too! Now, how cool is that?

 

Introducing Barbie Styled By Me!

Personalize your Barbie doll, complete with THREE fashion looks and a custom Doll tee!

Here's how the entire Black Doll Affair Family from around the country will participate in this dolling affair.

 

Step 1:


Check it out in the Mattel Shop HERE!

Enter the name of your Barbie.

 

Step 2:

Select Your Doll!

Choose from a selection of Barbie dolls in a variety of hues!

 

Step 3:

Style your Barbie's outfit - look 1!

Choose from a selection of tops & bottoms, dresses, and shoes & accessories!

 

Step 4:

Style your Barbie's Look 2!

Choose from a selection of dresses and jumpers!

 

Step 5:

Style your Barbie's Look 3!

Choose from a selection of dresses and jumpers!

 

Step 6:

Design a Barbie-Sized Black Doll Tee!

Select your tee color, text style, text color & name/custom message. I like the sound of "Black Doll" or "BDA Doll", or "Mama Doll"...rather has a ring to it, dontcha think?

Your Barbie doll, all of your fashion looks and your custom Barbie tee are displayed for your review! If you want to change something, this is your last chance to do so, before adding your Barbie Styled By Me to your shopping cart!

Step 7: PAY

Step 7: Wait for your new doll to arrive in the mail.

Wait for your custom designed Barbie in the likeness of you to arrive in the mail in a collector's box!

Final Step: 8

On Sunday, June 30th, at 7:00 PM EST, post pictures of her to the photo album of this Black Doll Affair! Then in the comments section, tell us "hue" she is! Is she you? The child next door? Your daughter, niece? Hue is she?

 

Enjoy her!

xoxo

Mama & Mattel & nem'

    Evenin' Dolls! I'm just getting off of work, but photos of my Brooklyn doll have been uploaded! I decided to change her outfits up from what I initially chose above! It's SO cool to see everyone's b'huetiful dolls and their dolling outfits! :-)

    The Dolls done good and all the doll pictures look awesome! I'm sooooo jealous right now and can't wait to get back to ATL to see my own Rock Doll! Had to divert UPS delivery cuz didn't want her outside wih a possible chance of rain while I was gone or even worse a possible case of going missing!!! I know she's too precious to take a chance on either and worth the expense and time to delay her. In mean time I'm loving all the shared pics and excitement!

    I took me so long to upload the photos, because I forgot how to dress and undress these dolls. It took me forever.

      I know Sheila, I haven't played with dolls like THAT in a very long time! Brushing, combing, changing outfits, making ready for her close up... Felt like a child again! :-)

      Jacqueline doll, if you're trying from your phone or a tablet it won't work. Try a pc or laptop.

  • Mama Doll, BDA F.

    31 RSVPs only 7 Dolls have come in to confirm their doll purchase. Black Dolls hit me up, what's your status on this Affair at: http://www.meetup.com/theblackdollaffair/events/122915992/ Even if you've missed the deadline to get in on time when we post our b'huetiful dolls, DON'T miss the opportunity to design a doll in your likeness during "Love the Skin you're in month!" And by the way, Mattel's Barbie Styled by Me" is not an ongoing opportunity. So...

    June 25, 2013

    • Sheila C.

      I know for a FACT that Christina Doll ordered hers, cause she saw mine and ordered hers on my computer I think last Thursday or Friday. I thought it was so funny, because every outfit she chose is something that she would definitely wear.

      1 · June 26, 2013

    • Mama Doll, BDA F.

      Thanks, Lady Dolls! Can't wait to see Dolls, Jan & Christina ... on June 30th. I haven't received my Dana Hill doll yet. But, I did get notice from Mattel that she's on her way ;-)

      Lauren doll said it was because I was trying from my IPad. I'll try from my PC.

  • Allison H.

    Hi. Any news with the promotional code?

    June 11, 2013

    • Mama Doll, BDA F.

      Ok, so this just in from Barbie Headquarters [Mattel, Inc.] Email: "Hi Dana,

      I just heard back, unfortunately, the code does not apply to the Styled by Me dolls because of the personalization and customization cost of the product. Apologies this was not outlined originally as a restricted item, however at this time the team cannot lift the promotion code block that exists. I understand this is time sensitive and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience, moving forward if you have ANY questions prior to rallying the dolls please let me know and I am happy to double check promotion code details with the teams here."

      June 13, 2013

    • Mama Doll, BDA F.

      So Dolls, since I've already "rallied the dolls" should you proceed, you'll do so without being able to use your dolling discounts. FYIzzle.... and thank hue for your patience on this matter. xoxo

      June 13, 2013

  • Roslin

    I love this idea!!

    June 9, 2013

  • Sheila C.

    Hey Dolls, is anyone else having a problem using the promotional code? It is giving me a message stating "Your order does not meet the requirements for this promotion."

    June 5, 2013

  • Chyna A.

    I am getting the same message.

    June 6, 2013

  • Sheila C.

    This is going to be so much FUN!!!
