Malibu Barbie

Sunset Malibu Barbie was one of the most important Barbie Dolls of the 1970s.  She was sold through 1977 and defined Barbie throughout most of the 70s.  Representing the "California Girl look", she was an instant hit and was enormously popular.  Part of her new look was the use of a Stacey head, instead of a Barbie face.
