This book chronicles Barbie® 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® doll buyers.

Collectors will find not only Barbie®, but Ken, Tutti & Todd, Skipper, Casey, Francie, Stacey, Midge, Christie, and many other friends and family in the book.

You will be tickled pink with Barbie®, The First 30 Years, Second Edition!
