I bought a job lot of dolls on the 'Bay a few days ago, not sure exactly what was among them but on unwrapping them I found it contained identical dolls to the first, and only, two Barbie dolls that I owned as a child!
The one on the right, with the blue eye shadow is identical to my first Barbie (whom I imaginatively named 'Barbie'). She originally wore a vest and shorts for jogging and she was a budget doll who was then reduced to next to nothing from Woolworths.
The girl on the left is Crystal Barbie, with her lovely purple eyes! Actually, she wasn't strictly speaking my second Barbie. Before her I had a 'My First Barbie' with a leg that was rather prone to dropping off! Unfortunately she was stolen and eaten by a dog on the local playing fields so I saved for months to replace her with the long drooled over Crystal Barbie! I remember gazing at her in the Argos catalogue and THIS advert
The Crystal Barbie also has her original gown and stole but I'm planning to give her a reroot as she's had a hair cut, and I remember my old Crystal Barbie had lovely curls ^_^.
Thanks for sharing my memories!
