The Collectible Barbie Doll
In the universe of dolls, Barbie has stood the test of time. This newly revised and updated edition of The Collectible Barbie Doll chronicles the evolution of the amazing dream doll through more than 300 collectibles-from her birth in 1959 as "stock #850," through her lifelike action and interactive incarnations. Since her debut, Barbie has always kept pace with fashion and has reflected the changing values of American society. Meanwhile, she's dazzled more girls the world over than any other fashion doll in history. Here is a tour through four decades of makeup, hairstyles, clothing, and accessories, and an introduction to the top designers who've kept Barbie on the front lines of fashion. You'll revisit Barbie doll's exciting career life, from debutante to astronaut, and share her recreational intersts and non-stop international adventures. Of course, you'll also become reacquainted with all her fabulous friends and family-Ken, Skipper, Midge, Allan, Stacey, and Ricky. Along the way, you'll find invaluable information on availability and resoruces for tracking down your favorite items.
