SAYREVILLE - A Sayreville woman has a collection of Barbie dolls that have taken over her home.

Myshka Simeus has 500 boxes of the dolls in her two-bedroom apartment. She says she is starting to run out of space.

Simeus has original Barbies dating back to the 1960s and from across the globe. She estimates her 30-year-old collection is worth about $40,000.

The 33-year-old received her first Barbies as a child on Christmas from her mother, a single parent.
