    The original Black Barbie® made her debut in 1980. Though beloved friends of Barbie® – like Christie and Francie -- were introduced over the preceding decades, this was the first black fashion doll to be hailed as Barbie® herself. She wore a stylish red dress and had her hair in a curly afro hairstyle; she sparked a new era of possibility for girls everywhere. To celebrate her ruby anniversary, 40th Anniversary First Black Barbie® doll fittingly wears a flowing, red trumpet-styled gown with cut-away sleeves, inspired by her iconic outfit. Her hair is styled in a sophisticated up-do, a subtle nod to her original look. Finishing touches include golden hoop earrings, a necklace and a matching clutch. Now, like then, this anniversary doll captures the doll’s signature statement: “She’s black, she’s beautiful, she’s dynamite!” This collectible Barbie® Signature doll comes with a doll stand and Certificate of Authenticity. Doll cannot stand alone. Colors and decorations may vary.
