Barbie Beauty Center from 1972

Hello everyone! I had to take a hiatus from blogging last week so that I could keep up with the work flow at the office. Not that I blog while working (lol), but I do 90 percent of my updating during lunch. I needed that time for other things last week.

We had a visitor stop by the blog and was talking about some of her toys and she had mentioned a beauty center. I am going to see if I can find the one she talked about but I haven’t posted any beauty centers period so I wanted to start with this one.

The thing that looked odd to me (granted this is only 1972) is that Barbie has a 60s look to her.

Oh boy, do I ever remember this! It was quite popular, and every girl wanted one. I never got one, and I don’t think any of the girls I knew did, either. Oh well… And yes, Barbie certainly does have a 60s look to her. Looks like the designer of this toy didn’t want to let go of that period! 🙂
