And here is the original vinyl goddess: Barbie. This is the number three version in the 1959 debut year. At this point Mattel had decided to tone down Barbie's high vampy look and make her look a little more girl next door. This doll is the harder to find brunette version and she comes with her original zebra swimsuit, her original earrings (not in her ears), shoes, sunglasses, part of the stand (it is in pieces), booklet and box. The box has child handwriting on the bottom of the box in red crayon but the lid is in very nice condition and is the correct lid which says, brunette. Her swimsuit is in very nice condition with no issues. I think one of the shoes may be replaced as I believe one is supposed to say Japan and this pair are both blank. The doll is very nice. She has a nice long wig with full poodle bangs but the end of the ponytail seems a little thinner on the end than my others. It is is still very presentable. The hair needs to be reset but I am absolutely horrible with hair, so you would do better. She has no green ear. All limbs are tight, but as usually happens, they have faded with age differently from the torso. I once researched why this happens, and I learned that the vinyl composition was a different recipe for the limbs. Fun fact. Her makeup looks good with nice dark brows. She does have uneven nostril marks and a tiny dark dot under one eye. Lips look pretty and full. Correct butt markings for #3. If you do not have an early Barbie, this is a very nice one. If you can find a better stand, you are all set. I realized after taking the photos I did not put the correct booklet in the box. It will come with the correct booklet that shows only Barbie on the cover.
