Hello Friends, It's been a few days since I posted something from the "Horde", so Here's one for the girls.
Excerpt from Wiki......"Barbie is a fashion doll manufactured by the American toy-company Mattel, Inc. and launched in March 1959. American businesswoman Ruth Handler is credited with the creation of the doll using a German doll called Bild Lilli as her inspiration. Barbie is the figurehead of a brand of Mattel dolls and accessories, including other family members and collectible dolls. Barbie has been an important part of the toy fashion doll market for over fifty years, and has been the subject of numerous controversies and lawsuits, often involving parody of the doll and her lifestyle."
In 1963 Bradley was contracted to produce the "Barbie" watch. This particular watch is the second year issue 1964, in the orginal packaging. Thanks for looking,
