Here I have to offer is a most Unusual and Rare 10 inch Barbie that I was told by a collector of Barbie dolls that this doll is called a "Barbados" Barbie. I have never seen one before and the collector said they are hardly ever seen and quite rare. I am not that familiar with Barbie dolls so I am putting this doll out there with this little information that I have on her. The little that I do know of this doll, is that her face does very much resemble the number one American Barbie doll, but that's about it. Her hair is mohair, but pulled up sort of into a bun. Her features are painted on like the #1 Barbie. The body however, is quite different, although female with developed chest, It feels to me like rubber that turned hard due to age. Her head is jointed as you can see, but I'm not sure of her body, because I don't want to remove her clothes which are totally All Original and in Excellent Condition with no holes, rips, stains or odors. She is wearing a 2 piece outfit with a gold metallic dress underneath a 3/4 length black velvet over dress, which is sewed closed. She wears a gold metallic sash around her body. She is also wearing two faux bangle bracelets on each wrist. Her high heeled shoes are molded on and painted black. The shoes each have a metal prong underneath as if to stand her on something. If you collect Barbies, or the Rare and Unusual, then this intriguing hardly ever seen Barbie is certainly a doll to think about. Just think of all the fun you will have researching her. Any knowledge would be appreciated. She comes from a smoke free home.
