1966 Doll Marking

Barbie Miscellaneous


Barbie is the star of the Mattel line and had many clone dolls that competitors created to make a similar doll at a lesser cost. Her sister Skipper was also copied, though she is not as commonly found as her big sister, which only makes her more alluring as she only surfaces on occasion, hopefully this page will help you to identify them.
