Notes: Some of hair color variations, especially "White Ginger" and "Sable Brown" are rarer.  Some have greasy faces. The "2nd" version of the bubblecut had much fuller hair.  There were many lip and cheek color variations & "sizes" of hair.

Side Part Bubblecuts

Some later Bubblecuts had hair with a distinctive side part.  There are also transitional dolls that have a side part and the American Girl face.

They were transitional dolls, made during the transition from a side-part Bubblecut to the American Girl.  You can easily identify the transitional doll because her head will have the traditional American Girl markings on the inner rim of her head. These are probably the rarest and most valuable Bubblecut Barbie dolls.
