But this girl has black hair. From what I can tell from researching the Twist and Turn hair colours,she's rare.
She was also the first Barbie with rooted eye lashes.
She has bendable legs too, but they were introduced in 1965 on the American Girl Barbie.
Times and fashions were changing. Young girls in 1967 didn't wear their hair in bubble cuts and ponytails any more. Long, straight hair was the fashion of the day, and Barbie was upgraded to fit the fashion.
|Everything about them is bright and colourful.|
This girl needs a body upgrade.
|As you can see, at the least this body needs a baking soda scrub on the arms.|
Her original body had the legs off. They were there, but not connected.(That's most common with the Talking Barbies. Their legs are often off, even with dolls that have never been removed from the box.) She borrowed this not so great body so she could model this beautiful Beau Time dress I got at Salvation Army the other night.
|Beau Time is from 1966, a year earlier than Twist and Turn Barbie, but it's colours look great with her black hair.|
I knew this dress probably made the price of the case worth it. For some reason this simple dress is one of the more sought after Barbie fashions.
It's not that hard to understand. It's a beautiful dress. This one hasn't faded at all. The colours are super bright and the fabric is crisp.
See you tomorrow for another doll.
