In 1988 the Island Fun Barbie gang introduced some new friends, and old friends with new looks. Christie got her new, own face with a toothy smile. Black Barbie dolls of the time was also made with this face.

Barbie Fashionistas

In 2018 we got a new Petite Fashionistas. Everyone screamed when she was spotted and thought she could be a new Superstar. Nopes. Of course not. Christie. Mattel has a new way of putting on the faces so these old sculpts looks really weird with their stickers.

The 2019 Basic doll line gave us a very light skinned, honeyblonde girl that went for crazy amounts on eBay as everyone wanted her. Eventually the doll was seen everywhere and I got one too. Too bad my doll is made in Indonesia as she has that awful pixelated face print.

Barbie and the Sensations was another little 50's inspired pop group sold with a cassette tape in the box. We got to see a couple of new friends in this group and one was Belinda, the black girl. As so many of the dolls from this period Christie here, suffers from the spotty legs plague. Big greenish yellow splots all over. Her head is untouched though :) Belinda was never sold in Europe.

Dance Club Barbie introduced two new friends and one of them was the black Devon.
