Some of us pride ourselves on our massive childhood stuffed animal collections, but 41-year-old Stanley Colorite's 3,000 Barbie gallery might just make him the most dedicated Barbie man fan the world has ever seen.

Living in a seven-bedroom house in Florida, Colorite's home serves as a nearly wall-to-wall museum for his 2,000 Barbies and 1,000 Ken dolls. Occupying every nook of his unabashedly pink abode, Colorite's Barbie buying spree began about 20 years ago, and since then the self-proclaimed Barbie man has dropped as much as $30,000 a year on his plastic pink fixation.

Colorite hasn't gotten stingy on keeping his collection fashionable and has even bought cars, motorcycles, wigs and thousands of Barbie outfits to make sure his girls are rolling in style. With a special Barbie ensemble designed by acclaimed fashion designer Oscar de La Renta in his possession, Colorite certainly isn't showing signs of giving up his passion for America's princess in pink anytime soon.
