In Dedication to Rose Mansour

Loving, open-minded, unconditional and unconventional, generous, bright, beautiful, funny, friendly, a free-spirit and fearless Libra... these are words best to describe my mother, Rose Mansour (1936-2013).
Thank you mom for  being my biggest cheerleader as I followed my life dreams.  You are forever in my heart... 

​​​​​​​​​Over 30 years of Barbie collecting! Thousands of dolls collected! Beyond the Valley of the Barbie Dolls is best-selling pop culture author (From ABBA To Zoom), renowned toy collector, and doll photographer David Mansour's homage to the doll he has loved his whole life: Barbara Millicent Roberts, or simply "Barbie."  On this fansite, you'll find a showcase of David's Barbie doll photography & collecting.  David has gone totally Beyond the Valley of the Barbie Dolls... and it's right in the heart of sunny San Diego, California!

"I wanted From ABBA to Zoom to cover not only the obvious pop culture icons, but tackle the obscure and seemingly forgotten ones as well.  In my broad research, I left no stone unturned."
