Skipper – Barbie® Doll’s Little Sister (2nd Edition)
Skipper – Barbie® Doll’s Little Sister (2nd Edition) by Trina Cottingham, Scott Arend & Karla Hemingway
Mattel first introduced Skipper in 1964 to expand Barbie doll’s world and to amuse the younger child. Skipper’s first 10 ensembles were smaller interpretations of well-loved Barbie outfits, establishing a consumer buying pattern that Skipper was a doll needed to complete the family. This long-awaited second edition of “Skipper — Barbie® Doll’s Little Sister” features 16 additional pages of never-before-seen items, including rare dolls, prototypes and gift sets, as well as a new, updated price guide. Included are U.S. and foreign market Skipper dolls and friends, their clothing, licensed products and gift sets manufactured from 1964 through 1978—the last year the first face mold was used. An entire chapter features all domestic and foreign issues of Skipper doll’s tiny twin brother and sister, Tutti and Todd, spanning their production years from 1967 through 1980.
