- VOL. 1 -

German speaking collectors can now discover my new website "Vintage Barbie in Deutschland und Europa" with a growing content of interesting and useful, in some cases never before documented facts about Barbie dolls in Germany and Europe in the 60s and 70s.

Deutschsprechende Sammler können jetzt meine neue Webseite "Vintage Barbie in Deutschland und Europa" mit einem wachsenden Inhalt an interessanten, nützlichen und in manchen Fällen bisher noch nicht dokumentierten Fakten über Barbiepuppen in Deutschland und Europa in den 60er und 70er Jahren entdecken:


This guide covers all Skipper dolls from 1964 (63) until 1988 - US and international issues; fashions (until 1979) and many related items. Some pages are being updated at the moment.


If you would like to navigate to the home page, view the information in the colums below, send me an E-mail or view the disclaimer + copyright info, please use the navigation list on the left or press the "GO TO PAGE" buttons. 


I'm always happy to receive feedback from you, so please don't hesitate to leave an entry in my guest book. Thanks to everybody who has commented up till now. I'm happy you like my webpage and I'm always grateful for constructive criticism. You can also reach me by using the contact form. I try to answer quickly, but sometimes it might take a few weeks to get an answer.


You can find pictures and information on all Skipper related fashions from 1965 - 1979. It was important to me to show you how these fashions look like on dolls, so you can see them dressed. You can also find descriptions and pictures of details or variations some of which - to my knowledge - have never been published before. 


All dolls and items pictured are from my personal collection (unless stated otherwise). This is a non-commercial webpage - I don't make money with this website.

This guide is permanently under construction - new info will be added. (I'm very busy at the moment, so it might take a while till the updates will be online) 


Because this website has exceeded its maximum size, I had to move some information and created four more websites to fit in all the content. Some buttons lead you to one of my new websites.

Please note: The information on all of my websites derives from my own independent research - some of the info has not been published in any form before. No part of this information - neither written information nor photographs - may be reproduced, stored in any retrieval system, or transmitted in any form, or by any means including but not limited to electronic, mechanical, photocopy, recording or otherwise, without my written consent. You are entitled to use the information for your private, non-commercial use only. If you want to use the info on your book/website/etc. PLEASE CONTACT ME PRIOR TO USE!
