Well I went and done it! I got me a Made to Move Barbie.
Remember me mentioning I didn’t acquire one because I thought they looked weird and weren’t used to them? Then after Jaslene’s (my other Barbie) photoshoot I wished I’d had one in order to pose her better.
When I sell my crocheted items online I really want to be able to have a variety of looks. I can achieve that with this doll.
Have you seen these BMR 1959 dolls before?
The BMR1959™ collection celebrates the fashion heritage of Barbie® and showcases how current trends influence the brand. These bold, fully posable dolls capture the diverse looks found in today’s streetwear culture. From high-low fashion mixes, re-imagined ‘90s gear to juxtaposed patterns, textures, and silhouettes, this curated ensemble is all about personal expression and style.
I really love the details they put on this doll. I love her baby hairs, the expression on her face and most of all her braids! I’ve had the exact same style and color of braids in my hair but just not as long. She is such a beautiful Barbie!
Now that she’s here the movable joints don’t bother me as much. I actually appreciate them more now and you’ll soon see why.
I was impressed how the doll was packaged. She came in a street-wear inspired shoebox! I think it is a clever idea to do this, especially for those only purchasing this as a collector item.
Mattel definitely made sure these dolls weren’t moving in the packages. She was securely strapped down in her box from all angles. It was packaged so well I grew frustrated at all of the things I had to cut just to get her free. 😆
I think the BMR 1959 printed tissue paper was a nice touch as well.
Inside the box you also see a BMR 1959 labeled Barbie stand which was a nice addition. I had just purchased my own Kaiser stand so decided to use that one instead for today’s post. It’s nice to know I have two options now.
They also include a COA (Certificate of Authenticity) for us to have. Pretty neat to have it.

You know I couldn’t resist another photoshoot with the light box. Of course I wanted to share the first run of poses with you.
I do really love her 90’s street attire look so I decided to do a couple of old school poses to go with that. I did some new ones as well so don’t worry.
I plan on getting her a nice solid dress to wear that would go with the style of my crocheted items. I wanted to have fun with this current look before it totally changes with her new outfit.
Oh and if you’ve noticed I haven’t given her a name yet. Stay tuned till the end for a fun little contest to win some HBD! 🤩
Let’s do this:
Let’s start out with giving all of my Hive Fam a big hug for always supporting me! A hug from us to you!
Oh yea here’s that old school wrapped arms pose. She also wanted to show off her her bling bling! 😁
Too cute for the sun with the hand on the hip!
Excuse me as I play around with slang to match her movement.
She’s got a lot of spice along with that hip hop.
Testing out her athletic moves.
Does it look like she’s running?
You can move her ankles and wrist too. It’s really neat how they make these joints movable.
Herkie! I was a cheerleader in high school so had to represent a jump. 😄
I’ll end with a new school move I just taught her...
Yep! She just Dabbed it out! 😜
I would love some name suggestions for my new doll. What does she look like to you? Please comment below what you think I should name her.
If I choose your suggestion as her name you will receive 5 HBD! You can list more than one but please check the list first to make sure you don’t repeat a given suggestion.
It is not guaranteed I will choose any of the suggestions.
You have until this post pays out to leave your comment.
Thanks so much for joining me in another light box round!
