Stefanie Deutsch started collecting Barbie dolls in 1980 when she was still attending school in Germany. Her collection grew quickly and she became well-known through the German press, radio, and TV. In 1986, she formed an official Barbie doll collector club for Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. For Barbie doll's 30th anniversary in 1989, her dolls were shown in major, Mattel-organized exhibitions all over Germany and Switzerland. After graduating from law school with honors, Stefanie and her family (including some thousand Barbie dolls) emigrated to America. Here, in 1992, she wrote her first book about Barbie dolls, a price guide published in Germany that is now in its second printing. Stefanie also served as president of Barbie Doll and Friends of Vancouver. After the birth of her children, she parted with many of her dolls, but is still very involved in collecting.
