Mystery Solved

    2 Newer Barbies and a Barbie Take off From China
    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 .

    What about the first one it has MADE IN JAPAN wouldn't this be one of the older ones not newer?

    She is a Malibu Barbie doll From late 70's . If in box and original clothes mint has collectors value . Played with and no box not so much. Sorry I missed addressing her in first post . But here is an example of her :-) They did some variations on her also some had painted on swimsuits .

    Thank you Manikin ....Sorry but still a little confused. If you say late 70's and your char has 1959-1972 JAPAN wouldn't it be early early 70's at worst?

    Thank you so much....:)
