Twist N Turn Barbie® "Go Go Cocoa" (brunette) 


Twist N Turn Barbies®; Titian and "Chocolate Bon Bon" (dark brunette)


Incredible Twist N Turn Barbie with very unusual white platinum hair
 

- Was sold wearing a neon orange swimsuit that had orange trunks and a white (with orange trim) fishnet swim stop.

- Looks similar to the Standard Barbie (below) but is on a bendable leg, twisting body

- Hair colors have unique names: Sun-Kissed (pale blonde or platinum), Summer Sand (ash), Go Go Cocoa (brunette or brownette), and Chocolate Bon Bon (dark brunette).  Titian (red) hair can also be found but is more rare.  Her straight, uneven hair is pulled up at the sides into a  tiny ponytail that sits on top of her head, tied with an orange silk bow. Length of hair is mid back to waist length and cut unevenly

- Eyes are blue, light brown brows, rooted lashes, deep pink lips and blush.

- The TNT and Standard are the first 'Mod' or 'Pink Skin' dolls. Their vinyl tends to pale and can become so pale that it looks greenish.

- This doll  did NOT come with earrings or originally have earring holes, though many outfits did come with earrings. For this reason, many (if not most) TNT and Standard Barbies  (as well as PJ and Stacey) have had their ears pierced.

 

1967 Standard Barbie 
...She is also known as the 'Trade-in' 1967 Barbie since in the late '60s Mattel offered a program where little girls could trade in their older Barbies for a 'new' Barbie.


Silver Ash Standard Barbie

- She was sold wearing a very cute hot pink
two piece bathing suit with a white plastic flower on the bottoms.

- This doll  did NOT come with earrings or originally have earring holes, though many outfits did come with earrings. For this reason, many (if not most) TNT and Standard Barbies  (as well as PJ and Stacey) have had their ears pierced.

- Looks similar to the Twist n Turn Barbie (TNT) but she has no eyelashes, and is on a straight leg, non twisting body

- Hair colors are titian (red), different shades of blonde and brunette.

- Her straight uneven hair is pulled up at the sides into a tiny ponytail that sits on top of her head, tied with a pink silk bow.

- Length of hair is mid back to waist length.

- Eyes are blue, light brown brows, deep pink lips and blush.

- Body markings are Midge T.M./c1962/Barbie/c1958/by Mattel,Inc./Patented

- She has the straight hard legs that don't bend.

- Standard Barbie #1190 was also issued in 1969, same body marking, but the bathing suit this year was a one piece, colors green and hot pink with the pink plastic flower.
