i know its a barbie body but not sure about face, bottom is stamped matel barbie i think 1968 but face is different, she is almost smiling. thanks!! marilyn

Hi Marilyn - Your Barbie Doll has a Malibu Barbie face, which used the Stacey Doll head mold.

The outfit she is wearing is from 1974 - Gold Medal Olympic Barbie. She should have 1966/Taiwan on her bottom.

That really looks like an older straight leg body to me with the Malibu head on it

Wrong body
by: Anonymous

Yeah, that's an early 1960s straight leg body with a 1970s Malibu head on it. It also looks like the hands are damaged.

Can you help my identify my doll please. I can't find one like her.

by Debbie Carmichael
(Wichita Kanss)





I think she might be a TNT but her waist doesn't twist. I also thought she was a Francie because of her body and flat feet. Maybe you can help! She says:1965 Mattel Inc US Pattened US Pat Pend Made in Japan. She has a beautiful face. Rooted lashes, Bent legs, holes for earrings, no polish. Thanks for your time. Debbie

Hi Debbie -
You have a Hair Fair Barbie Head on a Bend Leg Francie body, wearing an American Girl Barbie Swimsuit.

Japanese TNT barbie
by: Anonymous

Hi
What you have is a very priceless doll. She is a twist'n turn barbie from 1967-68, very hard to find because she was only produced for the Japanese market. If you are thinking of selling her she would go from the price range of $2000 to $3000, I've seen one sold on an auction for about $3500.
Hope this helped :)


Wow
by: Billie Jo

This is a Japanese market TNT Barbie in a Japanese version, pink instead of blue, of an American outfit! This is a rare, amazing, and valuable doll. Dolls for the Japanese market were packaged differently and were often dressed in outfits sold exclusively in Japan. These dolls are some of the most highly prized among Barbie collectors. You are lucky!

TNT
by: Marina

Congrats, she's a Japanese dressed TNT doll and was only available in Japan (and some european countries). She's dressed in a rare pink outfit
called "Sleeping pretty".
A rare find..

Mod Barbie ID Please

by Mary
(Mokena, IL)


I have a blond Barbie that has a mixture of features from a Talking Barbie and a TNT Barbie. She has the ponytail and swimsuit (pink/yellow knit top and pink vinyl short bottom) of a Talking Barbie, but there is no talking mechanism. And she has a TNT waist. Her legs are bendable.

Butt markings are:
©1966
Mattel, Inc.
U.S. Patented
U.S. Pat. Pend.
MADE IN JAPAN

What do I have here?

Hi Mary -
It looks like someone put the talking Barbie head on the TNT body. Talking Barbie has problems with her legs falling off - so maybe she lost hers and got a body transplant!

Looking for Information on this Hong Kong Malibu Barbie ?



This Barbie has a Malibu face, I think. She has a TNT waist that is slanted. Her arms are strange, the left one is palm inward, the right one is palm backward. Her right cheek says "1966, Mattel Inc., U.S.A. $ Foreign Patented, Other Pat's Pending, Made in Hong Kong"

Perhaps she is a composite. Also, when did the TNT waists change from slanted to straight horizontal?
Thank you so much for any help you can give me.

hong kong malibu
by: mary/skippercollector

Regarding the hands: It's probable that whoever put the doll together at the factory was using up extra parts; hence the mismatched arms.
The straight waist began appearing in 1977 with the introduction of SuperStar Barbie.

the sport set, sun valley barbie
by: christina

this doll here looks like the (sun valley) "barbie" that came in the orange & yellow skiing outfit. or she also looks like the (newport) "barbie" too.
these (malibu) "barbie" dolls actually came out in like the mid-70's.
and the style of arms/hands that this doll has is known as the "mexico" arms. that came out in like the mid-70's too.
i would say 80-90% sure that this is a (sun valley) "barbie".
do an ebay search and compare the way the eyes are painted with your's.
good luck :o)

ID for Malibu
by: Susan K

The horizontal waist TNT's began in 1974 when the dolls were made in Korea. I don't think your doll is a "Malibu" Barbie.

This doll is from 1972-1975
by: Siansonea

Malibu Barbie was produced for several years, from 1971 until 1978, and was manufactured in many countries with many different variations. The arms pictured are pretty standard "Mexico" arms, they are not uncommon for the period, and most, if not all Taiwan-made Malibu dolls from this time period had this arm style, as well as many of the Korea-made dolls (though these dolls had hard, shiny arms, not flexible vinyl). The slanted waist was common until 1977, but the previous poster is incorrect in stating that 1977 SuperStar Barbie was the first doll to feature that waist construction. Actually it was 1976 Ballerina Barbie that had the horizontal waist plane for the first time. Hope this helps!

About the waist and arms.
by: Sergio

Hi there, I hope you are doing great.

The Mexico arms (on left hand inwards and right hand backwards) were very common at the period from 1970 to 1977 and where used mostly in beach dolls and sports dolls, even though these arm molds debuted with Talking dolls.

About the non slanted waist, it was made by first time in 1974 when Mattel decided to re-use the Talking torso alongside the TNT torso, from 1974 to 1976 beach dolls and other dolls like Quick Curl series were made interchangeably with any torso, but Ballerina Barbie was the first high profile doll to used decidedly the Talking torso. In 1976 the TNT torso was stopped using except for beach dolls.

I bought this doll in a lot at an auction for my wife, and I can not find her information anywhere. I am wondering if she has been pieced together or if she is in original condition. She looks great and very well maintained. I would like to find some clothes for her so I can have her put in a display case. But I need to know what she may have been wearing. Do know she is not a reproduction because she does not have the new year mark on her. Any help would greatly be appreciated. She says 1966 Mattel Inc USA & Foreign Patented Other Pats Pending Made in Taiwan on her butt. She has rooted eyelashes and pretty curled hair in a short ponytail. I did find out she has Mexican hands. But that is all I have found.

What year and kind of barbies do I have?




Hi, I obtained 2 Barbie dolls at a garage sale last summer, They both have non- bendable legs, painted toes and finger nails- one has pierced ears and no rooted eyelashes, the darker haired gal has rooted eyelashes.Both are marked Midge 1962 on their fannies. I had dolls like this when I was younger and thought they were "Barbie" not Midge. I am confused on the situation, Any help would be appreciated, Thanks, Lisa

Mod Flip TNT - Vintage or Repro?

by ShellyA
(West Coast USA)

Hi Folks,

Recently purchased what I believed to be a pretty vintage TNT Brunette Marlo Flip Barbie. She is in such great condition I am wondering if people switch the heads on some dolls? Body appears to be authentic with markings and wear but head and hair are excellent. How do I tell the head and faces apart from the 1969 repros of Red, White and Warm and Made For Each Other (I think 2006 & 2007)? I don't mind a repro, but don't want to pay vintage prices for one. Any help appreciated.


Hi Shelly -
If you TNT is vintage, her head rim will be marked ©1966 Japan - you will have to remove her head to see it. See TNT Barbie for the description & body markings.

The talking busy barbie I bought is a Walking busy barbie?

by Frieda Visser
(The Netherlands)




Hello I need help to Identification of my vintage barbie.

I bought a vintage talking busy, but see is not! Here body is a walking body, I can see she is all original. The clothes she is wearing cannot be off. I have looked on the internet and I cannot find these barbie on this body. My question is do you know anything about her?

Thank you very much, kind regards Frieda

Hi Frieda --
It looks like Busy Talking Barbie's head & original outfit. I would say that at some point her head was switched to a different body - could have even been done by the original owner - I know I use to change the heads & bodies on my Barbie dolls when I played with them.

Talking Busy barbie head on walking body
by: sandy

I have one that I bought years ago. that I thought someone switched the head dont know how it would come off maybe they did make these dolls on walking busy barbie boddies now I see yours . I dint have the outfit but the headband on mine is still attached .
hope this helps
Sandy

Switched head
by: Anonymous

The head can be removed. The soft vinyl heads which were easily removable have hardened with age, making it more difficult to pull off. But when this doll was new the head could have easily been taken off by a child. It is very common to find talker heads on different bodies because the talk mechanism broke so easily and the legs on talkers would fall off...but their faces were so pretty, so kids and parents would put the talker's head on a different body and throw the broken talker body away. I repair Talking Barbie dolls and have years of experience with them, and I encounter mixed up dolls all the time. I hope this info is helpful. :o)

Head switch
by: David

I too have had this combination of head & body. I am in agreement that it never came this way though. When we played Barbies, often we would just pop off the heads & switch them because it was easier then getting pants or nylons on a bendleg doll! Besides how else could you see Barbie in a Francie outfit or Francie in a Skipper outfit!?!

baggie dolls
by: Annemieke

Mattel has made baggie dolls from leftover parts in the 70's Except the talkers, they didn't have the talking mechanism in that. Live action dolls were made as well. I think that it could have been made with tho combined parts.
I was also thinking about another version, like we have a different equestrienne barbie in Europe then in other parts. But sofar I haven't found it yet.
I do agree some heads could be swapped, but then it does have to come off easy as well.
hope this helps.

Mod Barbie Doll Identification Request

Unknown Vintage Barbie

Unknown Vintage Barbie

She is marked only w/ a copyright symbol Mattel Inc 1966 Korea on her lower back and right butt cheek, and has a 14 on the other cheek. No patents or patents pending and the way it is stamped is different than any others I have researched. I purchased several boxes of vintage Barbie Dolls at an auction, and I have been able to find all of them except her. All the other dolls were originals, and the most recent one was a 1976 Quick Curl. I am wondering if she is original, what she is (year/specific release doll), or if she is a reproduction doll. She has Chocolate Bon Bon hair, rooted eyelashes, and is in perfect condition. Please help, I am going crazy trying to find her information.

Hi Amanda -
It looks to me like you have a Talking Barbie head on a later TNT body. Barbie dolls were made in Korea from 1973 to 1978.

Hey! I just won this wonderful Quick Curl Barbie on ebay! she is in great condition, I'm gonna re-set her hair, and the original beads for her hair is there, but as a bracelet.

I tried to find pictures of it but it was hard, most of the pictures where from the front of the face only! (the pictures i upload are of the actual doll i won)

Need Help Identifying 4 Barbies

by Joanna
(Wilmington, DE)

#1

#1

#1
#2 I believe this is her original outfit. I do recall that she came with a curling iron, which I no longer have.
#3 She has non-bendable legs but is marked Mattel
#4 Also has non-bendable legs but marked Mattel.

Am trying to figure out which Barbies these are. The one in the pink dress is in her original outfit. I am unsure of the others clothing. I think the short curly hair one in yellow is also in an original outfit but again I am not 100% sure. The other 2 do not appear to be typical Barbie. Neither of them has bendable legs, however they are both marked Mattel on their backs. Any help in identifying these would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Joanna -
#1 is Superstar Barbie - 1976
#2 is Pretty Changes Barbie - 1976
#3 - Is a Francie doll, but i'm not sure which one.
#4 is wearing the original outfit from Quick Curl Barbie - 1972, but I'm not sure if that is the right head - I can't tell from the photo.

Correct Identification
by: Siansonea

1. This is the 1978 issue of SuperStar Barbie, made in the Philippines (as opposed to the earlier 1977 Taiwan-made version.
2. This is the standard issue 1979 Pretty Changes Barbie doll, made in the Philippines.
3. This is 1975 Baggie Francie, with her hair cut, or possibly 1974 Quick Curl Francie (doubtful)
4. This is 1975 Baggie Casey, no question.

I am wondering if she is the African-American version of Great Shape Barbie.

Hispanic?
by: Jake

Your doll looks very light skinned, are you sure she is black? She looks like a 1979 Hispanic Barbie on a straight arm body. If not, I would guess one of the early 80's Malibu Christie's. Sunsational Malibu Christie perhaps. But she is darker...

Also...
by: Jake

Does she have earring holes? Most(if not all) straight arm barbies(of that time)did not have earrings.

hispanic barbie
by: lynn

She is definitely not an African American or Black barbie, the coloring is far to light, she is one of the hispanic dolls (some of the African American ones used the hispanic face mold, so it's easy to get them confused, color is important). There are 2 hispanic barbies with straight arms that I can think of, the hispanic version of the "sunsational Malibu Barbie" (blue swimsuit) or the hispanic "fun to dress" doll. I'm thinking perhaps the malibu...

this is sunsation malibu christie
by: christina

my grandma bought me & my cousin each, one of these "christie" dolls. she originally came in a shiney yellow ribbed bathingsuit with red ties around the neck.
this is defininitely sunsational malibu christie. i am 100% sure!!!

thanks!
by: Anonymous

thank you all, this does look like malibu christie with lighter skin.

1982 Sunsational Malibu Christie
by: Siansonea

I think people are being misled by the overly light photo. This doll is 1982 Sunsational Malibu Christie, who had a lighter skin tone than the previous Steffie-faced Malibu Christie, 1979 Sun Lovin' Malibu Christie. The doll's face paint pattern identifies her as this doll, and I'm sure the doll's skin is slightly darker than it appears in this photo.

Who are these two dolls?

by Lisa
(LeRoy, NY)

Dolls 1 & 2

Dolls 1 & 2

I have been trying to identify a couple of dolls that years ago belonged to my younger sisters. I am really having trouble as there are so many face molds and friends of Barbie, nothing really is exactly a match, so I am unsure of who they really are. I appreciate any help anyone can give me!

Doll 1: A platinum blonde, Twist 'N Turn bendable leg doll. Her hair has small wires among the strands of hair, and she has a hair piece (also interspersed with wire) that can be attached by way of a small piece of velcro and orange ribbon. Her body information reads: ? © 1966 MATTEL INC. U.S.& FOREIGN PATENTED OTHER PATS PENDING. MADE IN TAIWAN.?

She does not have any identifying clothes, and I do not see any other markings on her head or body.


Doll 2: This doll's head sort of looks like she might be a Francie with a short, blonde flip, but her body is definitely not a Francie body. It looks more like a full 12" Barbie type, and it reads: ? © 1966 MATTEL, INC. U.S PATENTED U.S. PAT. PEND MADE IN JAPAN.?

There are no markings on the head, despite some green spots, she has really nice face paint and good condition rooted eyelashes. The body is a Twist 'N Turn and she has bendable legs.

Could a different head been put on the body? Or am I just really really bad at telling who is who?

Thank you!

Hi Lisa - The second doll is definitely a Francie head that has been placed on a Barbie body.

Not sure about the first one, maybe someone else will know.

Talking Barbie Variation?

by Kristen Giordano
(Saylorsburg, PA)

I wanted to know if the later version (hong kong) talking barbie ever came with long hair or hair extensions. I purchased one, she's the nape curl, centered eyes, but she has a long braid. Couldn't find her in my barbie book. Thanks!

Hi Kristen -
I am only aware of three Talking Barbie versions. It may be a transitional doll, when they were changing from one doll to another. My understanding is that when they changed dolls, they changed over to the new pieces when they ran out of the old so there were almost transitional versions that contained both older and newer parts. The best known is the Bubblecut Barbie with an American Girl Face.
