From the collection of Robin!
The year was 1967. Ponytails, Swirls, Bubbles and yes, even American Girls were shaking in their little plastic pumps. ‘Twist-N-Turn’ Barbie was here! Rumor on the streets was for less than a couple of bucks any of the afore-mentioned dolls could be traded in for the new model, ending up God knows where. Caused dolly nightmares across the land!
Well, being new, young and fresh (not to mention being able to twist at the waist) came with a price. With the title of ‘It Girl’ comes responsibility, after all nothing is free.
For all the blessings the new T-N-T had, Robin felt her new childhood friend should “pay it forward” long before any of us knew what that meant. Being the newest AND considered the best doll in little Robin Gee’s world meant you were destined to be “Goodwill Ambassador” to all her playmates that would visit. After all, according to Robin, a guest should always have the best!
Now it’s not fair to say Miss T-N-T could be had for the price of a milk shake. It was her job to entertain the masses, and entertain them all she certainly did! Passed through the hands of many, she definitely earned her keep.
After a long career in lets say “entertainment” this poor girl needed to freshen up a bit and Robin has treated her to a day at the Pink Bubbles Doll Spa!
With her hostess days far behind her, T-N-T Barbie can now finally retire in style. With her fresh make-over, she can pretend it all just never happened!
(Robin, T-N-T Barbie says her original orange hair ribbon was taken as a “souvenir” by an overly amorous visitor in the 60’s. We have sent our new shampoo girl Daphie out to locate one for her before she returns home.)
Here she is folks, new for ’67 and 2013 – Robin’s childhood T-N-T Barbie doll!
Robin’s T-N-T earned a well deserved Pink Bubbles Beauty Bath for Face & Body. She had her hair washed and re-set. She had a color wash treatment to address some complexion fading. She also had a light touch-up to her lips.
Thank you Robin for sending your T-N-T Barbie to the Pink Bubbles Doll Spa!
