Back of Talking Barbie box In 1968, Talking Barbie found her voice! New technology allowed her to talk with a pink flower pull-string behind her neck - although Barbie actually spoke through a voice box in her chest. She suggested fun things to do to inspire hours of play. Most of these dolls are mute today because of deteriorated rubber bands inside but they can be repaired to talk again. ​Barbie said things like, "Let's go shopping," "I have a date tonight," "What's playing at the cinema?" and more. She chats about fashion, prom, shopping, parties and dates. Col ..read more

Like many people, you may not have heard about Growing Up Skipper until the Barbie movie came out! She’s one of Mattel’s “uh-ohs” like Sugar Daddy Ken, lol. Growing Up Skipper #7259 (Barbie’s little sister) debuted in 1975 but was discontinued in 1977 amid controversy over how her body “grows.” Mattel received numerous letters from women’s groups and parents complaining about the doll and her ability to grow breasts. The front of her box stated, “Make her grow from a young girl to a teenager in seconds." The back of her box said that she transforms from a cute little girl to a ..read more

Barbie the Movie dolls going for a spin in her vintage pink convertible I’ve been counting down the days until July 20th to be first in line to see Barbie The Movie! (Subtitle: Ken the Accessory - Like a Purse with Pants.) With all the trailers streaming, I feel as though I’ve already seen the movie, ha. It looks campy, witty, satirical and, yes, thought-provoking! The production sets and costume design are next level, vividly colorful and absolutely stunning. It truly gives you the Barbie “feels” as if her world has come to life. I bought three Barbie dolls and her iconic pink vintage Corvet ..read more

1975 Quick Curl Cara Quick Curl Cara has been on my dream list for years and I've finally been able to add her to my Mod Barbie collection! I have the Canadian version. Same doll but the box is a little different. Both box versions say 1974 but she didn't arrive until 1975 for purchase. Cara was introduced in 1975 in two versions; #7291 Quick Curl Cara and #7283 Free Movin' Cara (next on my wish list)! A year later, Mattel came out with #9220 Quick Curl Deluxe Cara and #9528 Ballerina Cara. All four Caras use the Steffie head mold. My favorite is the first Quick Curl Cara. I just love love l ..read more

Aloha Hawaiian Barbie! She’s the most recent addition to my collection and I’m excited to tell you about her. In 1975, the first edition of Hawaiian Barbie #7470 was released. I discovered there are several versions of this doll so I’ve broken it down for you – it’s a bit confusing! The only Hawaiian friend produced for Barbie in the 70s was 1978 Hawaiian Ken #2960. Here’s more info on Hawaiian Ken: manbehindthedoll.com/mbtd_hawaiian78.  In the 90s, a few more Hawaiian dolls were added including Skipper, Midge, Christie and Teresa. Their names were ..read more
