How do you tell what year a Barbie doll was made?
Look for markings (country of manufacture, year, and company name) on the lower back in the waist region. Many dolls made in later years have markings in that area. From 1978 on, Barbie and her friends were manufactured in the Philippines, China, Malaysia, Mexico and Indonesia.
Is a 1966 Barbie worth anything?
They are very rare and can sell between $500 and $1,000 if in mint condition. The second answer is more complicated: Mattel had the Twist N Turn waist for the Barbie doll patented in 1966, and that design of waist/body was used for dolls sold between 1967 and 1999.
What was black Barbies name?
Her real name was actually LaChrys(something) Jackson until Mattel decided to alter her image and gave her a friendlier name being Christie ONeill. Barbie wasnt feeling her afro so she made Christie straighten her hair.
