Barbie’s debut…

Barbie’s debut –  March 9, 1959
Christmas morning 1959, there she was a special present for me. The gift was a blonde No. 1 Barbie original wearing a  black and white striped swimsuit, with the two pronged posing stand, gold hoop earrings, booklet and shoes. According to the library database Prices4Antiques, an original doll in perfect condition recently sold at auction for $4,600.00. Unfortunately my Barbie is long gone, given away many years ago. Who knew?
The Prices4Antiques database available at under “Research Resources” along with a variety of collectible and antique price guide books may help you discover a hidden treasure in your attic or basement. Good Luck!
