Publisher Comments:

Back by popular demand, Barbie(R), The First 30 Years is back in an outstanding 2nd edition. This book chronicles Barbie(R) as she changed over the first 30 years of her production, 1959 through 1989 - whether the changes were in her facial features, her hair, her clothes, or the boxes that she came in - and what made these changes significant for Barbie(R) doll buyers. More than 1,000 dolls are presented this time, and over 2,500 Barbie(R) dolls, accessories, sets, and more are showcased. Collectors will find not only Barbie(R), but Ken, Tutti & Todd, Skipper, Casey, Francie, Stacey, Midge, Christie, and many other friends and family in the book. Variations are now included, and dozens of new photographs of items never before pictured, as well as close-up shots of dolls not provided in the first edition. There are prototypes, foreign outfits, cases, promotional items, displays, gift sets, booklets, and even some dolls from the 1990s. You will be tickled pink with Barbie(R), The First 30 Years, Second Edition
