Mattel made the worst decision ever when they introduced the hobbit body to
the Barbie line. Or rather, one bad decision among many, as far as
collector's are concerned. With this new body several new faces was seen as
well, not neccessarily a bad thing. The bad part of that was, that most
heads suffer from BHS (balloon heads).
One new character was Nikki. She appeared in the Fashion Fever cardboard box
series as well as in the swim suit line in 2007. She had a smiley face,
reminding slightly of Asha. She was only seen in a few dolls in 2007, from
2008 she had Asha's face.
