Vintage Ricky Doll

Ricky doll was introduced in 1965 - due to Skipper's tremendous popularity, in 1965 she got two same size friends - Skooter and Ricky. Ricky was "the boy next door" and all three were playmates. All three dolls have the exact same body and it can be interchanged between dolls and they can all wear the same clothes. Ricky is one of the few Vintage Barbie friends/family to have his own wardrobe (for obvious reasons). In all, he had six ensembles - all are described below.
