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.
