Doll faces in the Wonderful WorldTM of Barbie®
 


A quite important note from the editor... These pages came to life as I once collected dolls by face and got curious to what faces was used for which doll. I made a table of each sculpt and tried to gather at least one of each character per sculpt. The site has evolved into something else since, but I have not every doll ever made with each sculpt listed, nor do I have the intention of ever having so. I just want to show off all the different sculpts used and their name (if they have one) and a copyright year, when known.

Not all the faces in this table/list are Barbie family or friends dolls, but they have in a way some connections to each other. Further down the page I have other dolls. On most face pages I have a note at the bottom, listing other dolls with that particular sculpt, which is not a complete list in any way, just some randomly picked examples... Or none at all. Well, I think it all will unravel itself, if you just take a peek  ;)

Some of the sculpts have two lines/links as the dates have changed due to Mattel started using different sculpts for pink box vs collector dolls, although they are virtually the same. I will still keep them on the same page...

Further noted: The year mentioned under each doll's face shot, is most often the box date - when I know it, or the release date (usually the year after box date).

And one more. There are small "Back" and "Next" button at the bottom. They don't work. No links. Remains from before, don't know why I kept them there.

I need to apologize from start. Some photos are retaken but far from all. Some are shots of rather dusty dolls, or with stray hairs across their faces and a lot of other issues but I have been taking quick snapshots of most of my collection and never found the actual time to do "real" photo shoots... As in setting up a decent studio and clean the dolls etc, etc. Some photos are picked from the old site and those are blurry beyond belief (happens when you expand compressed jpegs). Some are quite OK - but not all. Bare with me. Thank you.

Disclaimer: If you have a link with the security protocol (https), delete the s and pictures will hopefully show. Make sure the link says http, not https.
 

So here goes, My new start pages with photos if you'd rather see the sculpt first and not just a name as in the table below. This is an ongoing progress and neverending work and I am surely giving myself more of it by doing this. Still pictures missing in the gallery, but as said... It's in the works.

For the purpose of identifying the exact doll you may have on hand, I suggest you pay the German site Fashiondollz.Info a visit. Dagmar and Tanja has put in hours and hours of work to make their site a source for doll ID. As their site evolves, more and more information is added. From there you may wander off into the wonderous cyber space with a name and an ID number to find a picture of your doll in box. The Internet is a huge source of information, if you know how to seek it.

Below are some other face sculpts I want to share (we are talking Mattel dolls only here). Some are movie characters, other are celebrities, and other yet are non Barbie family dolls. Since a lot of the movie characters get "regular" Barbie/family faces they are shown within the pages above. Still, there are lots and lots of them that have their own or shared faces and I only list those I have on hand. For now.
 
Some of these are still under construction but the pictures are there. Anything else will come as time allows and I refrain from ever completing these.

Shero/Inspiring Women

This is a series of dolls Mattel has made to show little girls that "You Can Be Anything" and we find women that somehow was first or showed the way how to lead a life the best way possible. Inspiring women. Some have their own sculpts and can be seen here, while other are part of the regular Barbie line of sculpts above. I will only show the ones I have myself as I get them. Some are "tribute" dolls, others belong to the "Inspiring Women" series. The first dolls went under the logo Sheroes and they are mostly OOAK dolls of prominent athletes, but a few were mass produced. These are just a fraction of the women released as dolls so far.

WWE Superstars

Mattel tributes the World Wrestling Entertainment women with several series of well built dolls. Wonder Woman has a similar body, quite buff and muscled. This section is in no way complete, mostly to the fact I have no idea how many dolls/figures are produced in the WWE Superstar series (unlinked names are dolls I don't have). The head sculpts are gorgeous.

Sasha Banks
Bayley
Brie Bella
Nikki Bella
Alexa Bliss
Carmella

Charlotte Flair

Natalya
Ronda Rousey


I find celebrity and movie character dolls intriguing and there are many other companies that make them, besides Mattel. Still trying to figure out if I want to add them to the site or not - or just keep them in the blog(s).

The old pages with more/other celebrity dolls etc.


Other size dolls

Mattel has made a variety of bigger sized doll in the range from 16" to the My Size 3ft tall dolls. I have a few of them and I wanted to share them somehow. Gathered them all up on one page (for now).
In 2023 Mattel released a series of four new My First Barbie (and friends) dolls with a bigger sized doll, than the regular 11". They have softer "skin" and snap type bendable arms and legs. Their plastic reminds of baby dolls, with that soft texture.
Also, there are many smaller dolls, as in 2022 the EXTRA Mini dolls appeared, and in 2023, the EXTRA Mini Minis.

Info/Updates:

Deleted the masses of info. Will probably just add the links to the top.

Here is a section with the old sculpt by character setup. Sort of. Not finished in any way, but it's an overview of the different sculpts some of the dolls have been made with. And with that in mind, there is also a new page I have been working on a while, still debating how to set it up - all dolls on one page? The Fashionistas is a whole new chapter in the Barbie line and the diversity is gorgeously frightening. Mostly in the meaning of keeping up with them :) 

Working on another face section... :) Sneak peek. BAH. This one may not be continued...
- What I tried to accomplish here, was to get closed mouth sculpts on the same page, open and smiley mouths on one and pouty mouths on one of their own as people seems to have trouble keeping them apart.
