Sunset 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.

In 2002, Hallmark issued a Malibu Barbie Lunchbox Keepsake Ornament.  This Club Edition metal ornament came in a clear, plastic box and is considered a rare find.  When the Lunchbox Ornament has the miniature sunglasses, suntan lotion, beach ball, fins and beach bag offered in the original set inside, it is even more valuable.
