    She is not the Twist and turn barbie referred to in vintage barbie's . Your's waist does turn but she is not the real twist and turn . She is a newer doll and they came dressed in hundreds of different outfits that sometimes gave a name on box . Would be hard to ever guess her name but she really has no value
    She dates from end of 1980's ,yours is marked Taiwan
    How to Identify real age of Barbie dolls goes as follows

    Mattel© Barbie® and Friends: 1966 Trademarks and Dates
    The main marking for Mattel’s Barbie & friends are located on the dolls buttock The date on the doll, is when the trademark was issued, not the year the doll was on the market. A modern Barbie who comes from the mid-1990?s she has a mark on her lower back/waist of: © MATTEL INC 1966


    . There are many more Barbie’s on the market in the 1980-1990?s that have 1966 in their marking. So take your 1966 Date + Add the Country Name: and see below for when she was Actually Produced:

    Mattel Barbie & Family:

    1959-1972 JAPAN, 1968-1970 MEXICO,

    1970-1987 HONG KONG, 1970-1987 TAIWAN,

    1973-1978 KOREA, 1978-1988 PHILIPPINES,

    1986 to present CHINA, 1986 to present MALAYSIA,

    1989-1990 MEXICO, 1992 to present INDONESIA.

    All your Barbies are newer not made in 1966 . Go by name of Country on back I have provided with the date 1966 and it shows what year it was really made .
    I hope this isn't to confusing but many people are perplexed by date and think they have a old barbie because of them keeping that date and not making new mold dates .
