This doll debuted in 1964, and remained on the market only until 1965. Defining characteristic was the unique side-swept ponytail in varying shades of blond. The doll also came in brunette and redhead. Some Swirl Ponytail Barbie® dolls have been found on bendable leg bodies. Swirls were also used in the Little Theatre Gift Set and On Parade Gift Set. Barbie® was dressed in a red one piece jersey bathing suit, and included pearl stud earrings, and red open toe shoes.
