    Manikin
    (52 items)

    This is a number 3 Barbie with her rare blue eyeliner most 3's had brown. Her coloring is uneven and face is very pale . Her Hair is still gorgeous . Released in 1960. The Number 1 and 2 are very hard to find and were produced a short time due to not holding their color . The number 3 has a more beautiful look without those black high pointed eyebrows but she did not hold her color well either , So next came number 4 ,5,6,7 ponytail Barbies each with some issues .The later ones get oily skin .

      She's a beauty! I much prefer the vintage Barbies.
    2. Manikin Manikin, 3 years ago
      I do too Efsgirl. These were toys and many thrown away , Who knew they would be such a long time favorite to girls . I don't see quality in ewer one's and the vintage clothes were to swoon over unlike the cheap clothes on today;s Barbie's . My interest in them is from 1959-70's .

      She is so pale! You have a great Barbie there Manikin. I have the 50th anniversary copy of this release, but of course it is nothing like this :(
    4. kyratango kyratango, 3 years ago
      Mani, a great example of these old Barbie dolls!
      For sure, the clothes were quality, not as new ones!!!
    5. Manikin Manikin, 3 years ago
      racer4four, when you see a old Barbie and her face is this pale and her body color uneven grab it . A sign she is one of the earliest and sought after . Thank you for stopping :-)
    6. Manikin Manikin, 3 years ago
      Hi kyratango, and thanks for stopping by :-) I have a old enamel brooch I will be posting that you could help me on dating and if it is art deco :-) xo

      Skin problems on dolls, who knew !!! I would think too much sun, but the oily skin is too much ! Love this post ! xo

      Hi Manikin,
      I bought a 1960's Bubble cut Barbie in the original box with all the accessories in the 1980's for my daughter. She never played with her and one day she gave her back to me. I hope to post her in the future. I'm glad I read your post. Thank you for sharing.
    11. Manikin Manikin, 3 years ago
      What a great gift for your daughter roddyq and now you have her back :-) I would love to see her . Bubblecuts never had the fading skin but had some wonderful lip color from Red to white to keep up with the trends . Thank you for stopping and sharing !
    12. Manikin Manikin, 3 years ago
      Yep Phil even dolls have a need for a dermatologist :-) Many thanks my friend I always appreciate your support xo
    13. Manikin Manikin, 3 years ago

      This is one doll that saw minimal play, 0% from my daughter. I can't remember if I bought her at an antique store or show. Too many years ago, just remember the seller telling me she was barley played with.
    16. Manikin Manikin, 3 years ago
      roddyq are you going to post her ? :-)
    17. roddyq roddyq, 3 years ago
      Just posted her:)))

      How I wish I kept my Barbie. I took my Mother all over Santa Barbara for the "perfect Barbie" and I found her. An absolute beauty. She was a platinum blonde Bubblehead with pale pink lipstick. My Mother was a seamstress and sewed most of her clothers. Even a little skating set with the shorts under the skirt! I also had a dark haired ponytail Midge. Skipper, the little sister, all the pink bedroom furniture along with the canopy bed.
      One Christmas morning woke up to my Barbie Dream House. This was made of cardboard, but really well made. Never wanted Ken, why would a ten year old girl? :) Thanks for bringing back the memories!

    21. Manikin Manikin, 3 years ago
      Thank you Ms.CrystalShip, for stopping and sharing your memories . I agree I never wanted a Ken doll either it was all about dressing Barbie up to me and she had such beautiful clothes .

      I still have my Barbies from the day -- but played with them, so not fine shape - lol
    24. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 2 years ago
      Hi Ms Mani!!! She is awesome. Especially with all her accessories even that original rubberband!?! Wow, that is nothing short of mint and amazing. I believe that qualifies this beauty as definite "Rare".
    25. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
      Thank you Shareurpassion :-) It is so nice to see you stop by and hope all is well with you :-)
    26. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 2 years ago
      Thanks Mani, I'm just takin' it all in, one sale after another ;) Literally! I have got to move some of this 'stuff'. Need to make myself a new rule, one in=one out. Did I hear someone say rules are made to be broken??? UGH! haha
    27. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
      lol I think I have same condition but I am slowly getting rid of things I just know it is time to let go of some of my collections :-(
