Question About Barbies with Lara Face

by john
(dallas)


I'm searching for barbies with the Lara face sculpt. on the back of the head is stamped "1998 Mattel inc" there is another face sculpt from that year stamped "Mattel inc 1998"

i found a list of model muse dolls with that face and have found some on ebay. since i am re-painting them i hate spending a lot on the doll

can you help identify any?

the Lara face has parted lips but not smiling (examlpes are the dale earnhardt barbie, the birds barbie, cynthia rowley barbie)

the other model has parted lips but is smiling.

Hi John -
I can't help you out - but we'll put it up and see if anyone else can help. (I also added a picture.)

Need of your help!!!

by Kathleen Lopez
(Los Angeles, CA)

I had as a gift a ballerina doll around the 90's. She has painted on ballet shoes, it was light pink. Unfortunately i moved houses and everything was left at my grandma's and she gave toys away. Therefore 9 years after when i visites my grandma she no longer had it.. i researched and looked up but that particular one never comes up. Does anyone know the name? Or where i could purchase it.

I think I have that Barbie. Mine says 1998 on the back of the head, and it came with a pink floral dress. I also tried to look it up, but I did not find it.

Cinderella 1987 Korea
by: Annemieke

Your doll is from Korea, from the Cinderella Serie. There were four variations made, four different outfits. yours is boxed in 1987 and numbered as #622-7000

I know also the factory name
by: Anonymous

Takara made some Barbies (and Ken dolls) under license of Mattel, but I don't understand why their look is so far from regular 80's Barbie dolls.

Please help me identify my barbie dolls

A collage of both dolls

A collage of both dolls

I know my dolls are not worth anything I just want to know what year they came out in and /or made in and if possible what style they were i.e. super star and such. I bought them at an antique store and the seller must not know much cause she had them marked 1966 Barbie's. And of course I learned different when I got home and researched. I'm thinking the 80's or 90's. Please help if you can.I put the making info on the pictures. Doll #1 head marking Mattel Inc. 1976 and Torso Marking Mattel Inc. 1966 China
Doll#2 just has a torso making Mattel Inc. 1966 Malaysia
Thank you,
Wendy Piklor

identifying your dolls
by: Amber Rae

Dolls were made in different countries at different times. That helps identify around when they were actually made. Here's when they were produced in different countries:
Japan:1959-1972,Mexico:1968-1970,Hong Kong:1970-1987,Taiwan:1970-1987, Korea:1973-1978,
PHILIPPINES:1978-1988, China:1986-now, MALAYSIA:1986-now, Mexico:1989-1990, Indonesia:1992-now

So both were made after 1986. I am pretty sure i've seen both in my guide book. I will get back to you later unless someone else helps you first :)

the necklace
by: skippercollector

What does the necklace look like that the Barbie with bangs is wearing? It might be original to the doll.

Barbie with necklace discription
by: Wendy

Thank you for your help. The doll with the necklace has a sort of a drop to it . There's not a gem in it like I thought ... I got a closer look and all the jewelry (earrings, necklace and ring) are all green/emerald like a concave diamond cut. She has China 1976 on the back of her head.I don't think the jewelry hads been switched cuz for the life of me I can't seem to get the earrings to come off and the necklace doesn't have any frays on it if it had been untied. All the jewelry looks undisturbed.I only saw 1 doll in the books that came close to what she looks like and the jewelry in the book looks to be green I really can't tell is the 1990.s HAPPY HOLIDAYS #3 Model #4098. That is all I've seen so far.

back of Neck Mattel Inc 1976 & back Torso 1966 China
by: FormyTiarah

Hi I have a Doll who looks similar to Malibu with Blue earrings and Blue Ring (not sure if original but has China on lower back with year 1966 and back of her Neck is marked 1976. It even kinda looks like 1975 behind her neck but can't be sure. She does look similar to Malibu Barbie but yet different! Hmm why would neck say something different than back, also her back says China, Which would mean she was made in 80s I think.. I'm just puzzled because not sure. Any Input of Comments would be Greatly Appreciated. Thanks

1975 CHINA
by: Falyn

So I read the description of time frames barbies were mad(see above)but mine does not reflect this. Its stamped 1975 mattel inc. China. Can someone please help!

Free moving Ken
by: Falyn

My free moving ken doll has 1975 china stamped on him. According to the comment at the bottom of the page china didnt make them until 1986..Is this information accurate?? If so why is mine stamped 1975..Special maybe? probably not but if someone knows please let me know.

Falyn - the date on the doll is not the date it was made - it is the date that particular body style was patented. Suzanne

This barbie is Marked on the back of her neck 1975 Matel, Inc and she has blonde hair long 1/2 way down back. her top body to just below chest is harder and over that and all her arms and legs are "soft" not hard plastic. Her hands are hard plastic from below ebow to finger tips but all the rest is cloth feeling? Any ideas? I have not ever seen one like it. It is truly nothing like I have seen.

Barbie #2
by: Anonymous

Barbie #2 has a head from 1976 and a body from 1966. I know this because I have that doll. :)

Who is she?
by: Susan

I found a cute doll in a thrift shop the other day and for $1.00, I bought it. I have always enjoyed dolls and have a few larger one's from the 60's and 70's (Crissy/Velvet, etc) My hobby is making clothes for the dolls I collect
for them. When I get a doll I like to know its name. The head on the doll I just got says Mattel/2004. The body indicates 2000/Mattel/Indonesia. The doll is a few inches shorter than Barbie, is jointed at the elbows and has bikini panties which are inprinted on the doll. The hair is two tone blond and the figure is like a Barbie, but not so adult looking. Obviously one of Barbies "friends". Any help anyone can give me would be appreciated.

My Babie
by: Anonymous

Hi, I recently puchased a babie doll at a local thrift store. She was free out of the box.. obviously, and it is claimed she is an Audrey Hepburn doll. I looked at her back and the label says, 1966 Indonesia,on her head it says 1976. She is Mattel. She is wearing blue cyrstal earings, a blue beaded necklace and it looks like a Catholic design dress, blue velvet with gold trim and crosses. The dress has some white on it too.
Her hair is up in a bun-like hairdo that looks like what was holding it, was taken off. Please, can you help me idetify her? Thank you so much! :D

1991 Barbie--Help

by Pary

I could'nt find the heels but they are just plain green (i do have them)

I could'nt find the heels but they are just plain green (i do have them)

Hi I've been looking everywhere but I could not find anything to identify this barbie
it may not be that old but I really want to know
Its a 1991 Barbie as I said, the back reads 1996 Mattel, Inc. INDONESIA
and her underwear is....well different from other barbies it has little Bs and flowers all over it
I'm not sure if the dress belongs to her (or its an original barbie dress at all maybe it was a spare that came with it because the colors match)
she has earrings that come out half way and her heels are originals. (they were all green) i remember the original outfit being green and somehow gymnastic/swimsuit like but i might be wrong (i know it was green though)
Thanks :)

1966 Barbie Identification Question

by Trish Mitchell
(Reading, Berkshire UK)


Hi I have 6 dolls, I thought were my own Barbie dolls. If so they would be mid 60'S, but I can't identify them. They have twist and turn waists, but not rooted eyelashes. The legs bend at the knees, and arms seem to be permanently bent. All marked Mattel Inc 1966, some Philippines and some Malaysia. They all have genuine Barbie dresses of various sorts.

These Barbies all have the "Superstar" face, which was introduced in 1977. They are dated 1966 because that is the year the TNT waist was patented.

Barbie Dolls were made in the Philippines from 1978 to 1988 and in Malaysia beginning in 1986.

Trying to find a 70s Barbie with beige or cream clothes and red high heels

by Lili
(Mexico city)

Hi! I'm trying to find or identify a Barbie from 70s that is supposed to wear cream or beige pants and a blouse with long sleeves that has like soft marks of red flowers. Also the blouse gets wider at the bottom and the flowers gets more visibles. She wears red high heels.
Unfortunately, I don´t have more information or a picture. I am really interested in finding her because is the only barbie doll that my mom had at her childhood and that later she lost. So, the only source of infomation are the memories that my mother has.
I´ll be very thankfully in any help.
Another data is that the doll was gotten in US.

Looking for Collectible Barbie List

Hello,

I have a collection of almost 300 Barbies. However, I don't have many that are a complete set. How can I find out what I am missing in each collection? For example, I have "Barbie 2000", "Barbie 2001", "Barbie 2002", and "Barbie 2003". Is that the whole collection. Do you know of a website I can go to and punch in a name of a collection?

Sincerely,

Susan Fullen

Hi Susan -
One day I will get there on this site! The official Barbie site did have this information, but it is being changed & I can no longer find it - I would recommend checking it again in a few weeks and see if they have added it back in.

Stolen Magic Silkstone Earrings

by Kristina
(Indonesia)

Hello, Can anyone help me with question on Stolen Magic Silkstone. I have just received her a few days ago and I realized that she doesn't have her earrings. I have checked on other people pictures, most have her without her earrings but I have seen a friend who has her do have her earrings. Do the later productions not come with earrings or have I missed something?
