#1 1959 Ponytail Barbie in great condition! Very well kept for years! And tons of clothing collections! Barbie still has pretty good hair!I believe it's still in the same ponytails she came with. Her bangs have never been brushed. She has the holes with tubes in her feet/legs. Her beautiful face is hand painted lightning bolt eyebrows! There is a tad bit of paint fading on her upper eyelids that stick out.
Her body has minimal dark/dirt marks that I'm sure can come out if you know how to properly do it. The paint on her fingers and toes look good. No green on her ears. She comes in her original outfit; black and white bikini, white glasses, black heels with holes in the bottoms, and hoop earings. I read that her earings are supposed to be gold but many also have silver ones?Her bikini has a rip in the front seam as shown. It's on the seam line so you can turn it inside out and stitch it up. She is in a 1961 Ponytail Barbie case. The case is still nice and sturdy. Some dirt/finger marks on it that too, if you know how to clean it properly, should come out.
The case latches in the top and has a handle. The clothing included are all very early. Most have the "R" but one does have "TM". I have taken pictures of each collection and included a photo of it from the booklet. Some are complete, some may be missing an item or two (mostly jewelry).
