A man from Singapore has a large collection of Barbie dolls. It is one of the biggest collections in the world.

The man owns 6,000 Barbie dolls. His most precious Barbie is his first Barbie. He bought it back in 1984. This type of Barbie was also in a popular movie called “Toy Story”.

The hobby of collecting Barbies can be an expensive one. His most expensive doll cost him $3,600.

The man’s hobby of collecting Barbies doesn’t have a good effect on his relationships. No girl can be as perfect as a Barbie.

Difficult words: doll (a toy that looks like a small person), precious (very important), relationship (feelings between two people).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

Do you think that collecting Barbies is a good hobby? Why or why not?
