By Ashley Brooke, Kewpie83 @KewpieDoll83

This year, I really want to showcase little pieces of my collection.  This post features two of the more interesting pieces in my collection.

The first piece is a Super Star Barbie and Skipper telephone from 1983.  Made in China for Fun Communications, this can be used as a telephone or knick knack holder.

The second piece I wanted to show off is one of my newest.  I received this fantastic Cabbage Patch Kids telephone for my most recent birthday.  This telephone was made by Coleco in 1984 and features a Cabbage Patch Kid with molded yarn hair.

Neither of these phones seem to work, but they are both stand out pieces in my collection. I don’t know about you, but I love the ‘extras’, those items that aren’t dolls, but are off shoots of them.

Do you have any fun telephone-like items in your collection?  Do you collect dolls only or off shoots like these phones? Share your thoughts below.
