Meet Stanley Colorite, 41, proud owner of one of the world's largest Barbie Doll collections. He owns more than 2,000 Barbie dolls and his partner, Dennis Scholicker, owns 1,000 versions of Barbie's boyfriend Ken.


"The Barbies take up four rooms of the house but I won't stop collecting until I run out of rooms," Colorite says. "I don't need a mansion for my museum. My house is my mansion, it's my own Barbie Dream House."
