Barbie Wednesday


Welcome to another Barbie Wednesday!

This week I have a Twist N Turn Barbie to show you! I found her at the flea market where I purchased the last 2 dolls I have featured, Twiggy and Francie. I am still unsure what year this TNT came out. I know that it was late 60's but I haven't figured out for sure the year. She has long sideburns which is a characteristic that I haven't seen with the TNT's in my books.
She also came with this Barbie and Stacey Sleep & Keep case from 1969.


The dress Barbie is wearing is called " Pretty Power" #1863 from 1969. This dress would have come with black open toe or Pilgrim shoes.


This outfit she is wearing is called " Happy Go Pink" #1868 from 1969.


And this dress from 1970 is called "Loop Scoop" #1454. This dress is one of my favorites in my collection now. I love the bright yellow and braids of colors along the bottom. This dress would have come with yellow Pilgrim shoes.




I hope you have enjoyed looking at my new Twist N Turn Barbie today! Thank you for visiting and please feel free if you want to grab the banner and participate in Barbie Wednesday with me!

Oh, that brings back memories. When I was a child I loved that there was a Stacey doll because that's my name (with a slightly different spelling). I agree, that Loop Scoop dress is fantastic. Love the crocheted section. Thanks for another fun Barbie Wednesday

I always loved the barbie cases and clothes too...this one you showed is looking very familiar to me! Your Barbie Posts are always so much fun...thanks for sharing...now I'm off to see your new Blog!
Big Hugs,
Queenie

Cool! I have a question. How many barbies do you both have in your collection? You inspire me to go out and search for vintage barbies! Enjoy your day!

Fun reading about your Barbie doll purchases. I never played with Barbie doll but my daughter did a little. She was much more of a tom-boy type girly out playing sports.

Enjoy your evening. Dogwood

Hello ladies--
Lindsey I was at a craft fair today and when I saw earrings made from Barbie shoes and boots I thought of you. They made me laugh and my friend asked me why I was laughing and I told her about ylur Barbie posts.
