Twist ‘n Turn “Marlo” Flip Barbie.


I don’t usually write articles about a Barbie that’s before 1977 because the timeframe is pre-superstar face mold, thus not in my childhood recollection.  But a friend let me research her and her mom’s very playedwith collection.  And to clarify, very played with means very loved in my book, so not a bad connotation at all.

One of the treasures in this collection was this Twist ‘n Turn blonde “Marlo flip” Barbie.  I think the face paint still looks great even though there is a little missing from the bottom lip.


Anyway, this doll was a fun, albeit breif, distraction from my toothy, mega-watt smile superstars.
