The quibbles: The arm molds for the vintage repro dolls are not accurate to the original dolls. The original dolls had divided fingers (index and pinky on the right hand, pinky only on the left hand) and the shapes were different from the reproduction body molds. Also, the #1 Barbie doll (as well as the #2, #3, and #4) reproductions should be manufactured differently from dolls meant to duplicate later dolls. The 'heft' of the doll should be weightier, as the original dolls had solid vinyl torsos and limbs. The skin tone is slightly too pink to be 100% accurate in my opinion as well. The original doll had copper tubing lining the holes in her feet. Obviously the repro doll should not include this feature due to metal oxidation issues, but some sort of metal lining would be a better match than no lining at all. The hair is also not a perfect match to the original, as the #1 Barbie doll had an extremely fine gauge saran hair material, in a distinctive yellow-orange color. This doll's hair is too glossy and too 'ash blonde' in color, and the doll doesn't appear to have the flocking underneath the ponytail that the original doll featured. Also, the hairline is placed too low on the doll's forehead, the original doll had a very high forehead. The face paint is a good likeness, but not 100% perfect. The brows should be slightly darker, and the paint colors are good but not perfect.
No collector is ever going to mistake this doll for the original, but it's still a great doll in its own right. Definitely worth the very reasonable price, and I would encourage anyone interested in vintage Barbie to pick this one up.
The only real problem I have with this doll is the super low forehead. The hair should be up super high. The eyes aren't the same either, but I don't own an original #1 Barbie so I'm happy with this one.
In short, if you want a beautiful doll to display vintage fashions, she's your gal!
This Barbie doll is of course, a repro of the original 1959 debut at the New York City toy fair. One thing I must give the manufacturers credit for is how well the doll was bound to the box! It took me nearly half an hour to carefully snip the doll and her accessories out! Unlike previous reviews, I was able to put her gloves on her arms with very little difficulty, they fit almost perfectly on her arms. The bathing suit being glued to her body caused the black dress to become tight on her body and I was barely able to pull up the top of the dress to cover the top of the bathing suit, thus making it pretty much impossible the snap the dress up in the back. Minor problems I had with the doll that many others had were the unnecessary staples in the back of the head, slightly bent pegs on the stand and the little necklace which I didn't even bother with. These 3 things were minor. Other than that, she is a lovely lovely lovely work of art.
Much as I would love to change her clothes and build the wardrobe I had for my original Barbie, I think I will just keep her in the box as she is and no one else will touch her.
Absolutely LOVE this doll!
Some of them are cool for the girls of today, I suppose, but they just aren't the same. I remember all of the talk from some not too long ago who would say that the vintage Barbies are not good for their daughters as they were not anatomically "realistic"; no girl could live up to how she is built, etc. (She's a doll, for crying out loud, I would think!)
To me, the vintage Barbie reminds me of the many happy hours I spent playing, the memories I had with my friends and a great time in my life. I was so excited and surprised when my husband presented it to me as a Christmas gift! It is excellent quality and reminded me of the one I had so many years ago!
