Vintage Ponytail Barbie

Im always looking for new collectible items and just stumbled across these little treasures. Looks like I have been missing out on a hot item, there are thousands of these Vintage Barbie Dolls available online. Looks like a Blonde Barbie is a bit harder to find.

Mattel estimates that there are well over 100,000 avid Barbie collectors. Ninety percent are women, at an average age of 40, purchasing more than twenty Barbie dolls each year. Forty-five percent of them spend upwards of $1000 a year.

Vintage Barbie Dolls from the early years are the most valuable at auction, and while the original Barbie was sold for $3.00 in 1959, a mint boxed Barbie from 1959 sold for $3552.50 on eBay in October 2004.

Different Types of Barbies Over The Years

Vintage Ponytail Barbie

While Barbie's body, with a few exceptions here and there, has not changed with respect to size and shape - always remaining at 11 1/2 - her face has been continuously changing since she was first introduced.

Vintage Barbie Ponytail dolls were issued from 1959 to 1966, with the design evolving over the years resulting in several variations in the Ponytail Barbie. These variations are known by their numbers - #1, #2, #3, #4, etc.

Vintage Bubblecut Barbie

In 1961, Barbie donned a new hair cut called the Bubblecut. The Bubblecut Barbie dolls were manufactured from 1961 to 1967 with various hair colors ranging from numerous shades of blonde, brunette & titian.

Swirl Ponytail Barbie

In 1964, Barbie replaced her curly bangs with a sleek, side swept hairstyle, known popularly by collectors as the swirl ponytail. She was available in various shades such as blonde, ash, lemon blonde, brunette, redhead and platinum.

Vintage American Girl Barbie

In 1965, Barbie changed her look once again with a brand new hair style. She was called the American Girl Barbie and came in three similar hair styles: a chin length bob with a middle part, a longer bob with a left part and turquoise hair ribbon band and a longer bob with a softer texture and middle part. She was the first Barbie doll to have legs that bent at the knee. Production of the American Girl Barbie discontinued in 1966, resulting in the dolls being highly sought after by collectors.
