CHARLOTTE,NC--Barbie's biggest fan isn't a six year old girl.
Stanley Colorite, 41, has 2,000 Barbie dolls in his growing collection, "Barbie isn't just a toy for children, she's for adult collectors too. I can't stop collecting - it's like a drug habit, I just can't quit," Colorite says.
The Florida man says he has always had a thing for barbie but he took the love affair to the next level when he bought his first doll in 1997.
Since then his collection has grown into the thousands and is worth around $80,000.
Now Colorite says he buys up to 20 dolls a month from toy shops, garage sales and eBay, "The Barbies take up four rooms of the house but I won't stop collecting until I run out of rooms," says Colorite.
