As the designer of this doll, I appreciate all of you that are enjoying your AKA Centennial Barbie dolls.
I tried to capture the essence and beauty of our sisters and the meaning of the AKA organization. There were limitations to work around, but overall I am pleased.
This doll was a hot item during Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority's 100th Anniversary Convention in Washington, DC in July 2008, with many sorors waiting in line for up to 3 hours in order to purchase it. Fortunately, Wal-Mart offered the doll at the same price after the convention without the annoying long lines and with free shipping and handling if purchased website to store. The doll was delivered in perfect condition and makes a beautiful addition to my collection.
I was so excited to see that they had finally made a Barbie Doll modeled after my sorority. Being a Barbie collector myself, I couldn't wait to get it. I was a bit disappointed to see that no thought went into the design. The were no AKA symbols any where except for her pink and green dress (at least they got the colors right)....no ivy, no pearls...nothing. If I took her out of the box...she'd look like a regular Barbie. Even the little heart charm on her bracelet could have been the shape of an ivy. The only reason why I didn't rate this doll that bad is because if you are just looking for a doll....it's decent, but if you are looking for those things that would make this AKA doll extral special, you won't find it.
I really love my Barbie. She is very pretty and a true r tribute to AKA. I plan to pass it down to my daughter.
This doll celebrates the Sorority Alpha Kappa Alpha on their Centennial celebration. She features a gown in the colors of the sorority and accessories to match. She is a beautiful keepsake for members of the sorority and a quality doll for any Barbie collector.
What a beautiful doll and at a Wal-Mart price. I am a woman of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc and I am proud to have this doll in my AKA room in my home. In fact, I loved this doll so much that I bought one for my home, one for my staff office, one for my lab, and one to keep in hopes that my 11 year old niece follows me into the AKA sisterhood someday. : )
A great gift for a lovely lady of Alpha Kappa Alpha.
As a member of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc...,(Zeta Thetha Chapter ), I knew the value of this doll. I purchased it to surprise my sister (also an AKA-Zeta Theta Chapter) for this Christmas 2008. I know it will lighten her world when she opens the box and see this gift gift from her little Polar Bear neice (my daughter). It's a moment that no one can purchase.
This Barbie speaks for herself, and that is how the lovely ladies of Alpha Kappa Alpha represent our sisterhood!! She is beautiful in every way, and some day I will pass this along to my daughter or niece (maybe both because I have 2 of them)!! LOL!! I LOVE THIS BARBIE and my Sorority!!!
I purchased this doll for my sorority's 100th year anniversary! It is beautiful! Exactly what I expected.
I am a member of the AKA Sorority and could not wait to get this doll. I have been collecting the Holiday Barbies for years and was happy to see that this doll was just as beautiful as the Holiday Barbie. The dress is stunning and I love the little touches like the curl of her hair and the shoes she is wearing.
This doll is absolutely stunning! It is a must have for anyone's barbie/doll collection. What a great tribute to the ladies of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc.
I received this product and I love it! It is beautiful and a great price for a keepsake. I don't worship it, but I still haven't removed it from its box . . . absolutely gorgeous!
This doll is so beautiful!!! I am so proud to know that the Makers of Barbie realize the beauty of African Americans.The they understand the need to represent educated women who have dedicated their lives to helping others. I have purchased three of these dolls for myself, my daughter and another Soror in celebration of Alpha Kappa Alpha.
I thought I was out of luck when I couldn't get one at Boule. I'm very glad I ordered the doll online. It came right away and the product was great. It's the same one that was sold at Boule (crest on the box and everything). I highly recommend this doll for any AKA in your family as a souvenir or family heirloom to pass down to other sorors.
The Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Barbie is absolutely gorgeous. I must say this has been a long time coming--not only is this the FIRST "Sorority Barbie" ever...but to be an "African American Sorority" is a Godsend. --Shall I go on to name the attributes of how not only is the doll the first of it's kind, but to represent Alpha Kappa Alpha is only more phenominal!?!! Although this should not surprise me that the AKAs were able to work this out!! I love my AKA Barbie dolls and have purchased many for my family and friends. Knowing all of the wonderful things this sorority does it is an honor to pass this Barbie on as gifts to my friends and family!!
This is a very sharp looking gift for a member of AKA or for those planning to be.
I purchase this to save for my granddaughter. I am sure that she will be happy to add it to her Barbie Collections.
Thank you Martel and Walmart for recognizing your African American customers.
The AKA Doll is very well design with great features that are life like. A great item for any Alpha Kappa Alpha lady to have as a colletible and a tribute to all sorority sisters of AKA
As a lady of AKA and a doll collector I was thrilled when the AKa Barbie was unveiled at our 100 Anniversary in July. Unfortunately I was unable to secure one while in DC. I have been searching online for the dolls andn finally called Walmart customer service who heled me track down the doll. She is very pretty andn well dressed. My one area of improvement is in the packaging. The acetate box could have constructed better to enhance the dolls beauty. But other that she is gorgeous and I am glad I drove 90 miles to secure the one item I wanted for christmas
