Ponytail Barbie # 3 can be easy to identify by hair and vinyl coloring . These dolls lost there color and appear blotchy. If they had swimsuit on it will appear darker under suit . The part of body exposed got lighter . The bangs are as soft as back of hair . Ususally they have brown eyeliner but ones with blue can be found . They have a heavy body . One big mistake on Barbie collecting is people look at rear of doll wear it says a date but Mattel keep the same date on dolls for many many yrs . So Date does not actually mean she is as old as Pat date number says . The later number 4 Ponytail Barbie and 5 have stiffer bangs and they did not change color to vinyl over the yrs . Some tended to get what is called oiley skin a greasy look . You can wipe it but be careful not to touch paint on face . Just use a dry cloth or q-tip .
