i remember the Barbie Carrying case from the 60's. Black vinyl with metal clip and both sides opened with storage. this is all plastic, the doors are plastic flaps and the clip is plastic that hoolds the doors closed. i don'tthink it will last long. The clothes were nice, but you cannot see what you are getting until you get it. now, there are too many clothes to keep in it, so I am back to square one for a carrying case. Not bad, but not what I expected.
