Discover the World with Barbie: #36 Japan

As a retired magazine publisher, I went bonkers when I found out about the Discover the World with Barbie series! Each features a different country or global region and includes a full size magazine about said region plus coordinating Barbie dress. They are so cool!

Discover the World with Barbie sets were produced for the UK, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand markets starting around 2003, I think. They were not available in the US, but you can find them now on the secondary market.

The magazines were printed in Spain. Many of the clothes in the series were produced in South Africa.
