The perfect woman was considered to be 36-24-36, measuring chest, waist and hips in inches.
Created in 1959 by Ruth Handler, and named after her daughter Barbara, Barbie was an instant success. First sold at the American Toy Fair in New York City, Barbie can now be found and purchased around the world. The cost and value of the Barbie, however, depends greatly upon which Barbie you are seeking to buy.
There are a great amount of collectible Barbie's these days that sell anywhere from $25, all the way up to an obscene $85,000 for the Diamond Barbie. For right now though, we are going to focus on the one vintage Barbie that everyone wants to own - the original 1959 Barbie doll.
The original Barbie, (or Barbie #1 as she is called), was sold at the above-mentioned American Toy Fair for a mere $3.00. Her value now ranges in-between $8,000-$12,000. So, how can you tell if you own a true vintage Barbie doll? Look for the following identification marks:
Eyes: White irises in her eyes, she is looking sideways, and has very pointy eyebrows
Clothes: Black and white zebra striped 1-piece swimming suit. White sunglasses with blue lenses. Black open-toed high heel shoes.
Jewelry: Gold hoop earrings
Body: Partially solid with metal tubes in her legs. She has matching metal holes in the bottoms of her feet to fit on a doll stand.
Other markings: Right side buttock, Barbie ™ (not Barbie ®), may have other small markings on back and inner arms and thighs from production. Her right foot is marked "Japan".
This is my third ABC show over the last four years, so we were afraid that nobody would find it. ABC was really struggling and so we just weren't very confident that it would find an audience.
