Stacey Dolls were introduced in 1968, as Barbie's new "cool" Mod friend. She hailed from the Mod Mecca of hipness - Great Britian. There were two versions - TNT (Twist 'n Turn) and Talking Stacey. Between 1968 and 1971, there were three different TNT Stacey versions and two different Talking Staceys. She was permanently retired after 1971.
After Vintage Barbie Dolls, Stacey remains among the most popular and desired dolls among collectors. This along with the fact that each version was produced for only one to two years and therefore harder to find than other dolls, makes her one of the more valuable dolls to acquire.
Through the years, Stacey had three different hairstyles - the TNT version had a long ponytail in 1968 and a short bob from 1969 to 1971. Talking Stacey had a side ponytail.
TNT Stacey had two different hairstyles and three different swimsuits. For more details - TNT Stacey Doll
