The Barbie Collection Description
Release Date: 1960
Barbie® doll's weekend always started with a date with Ken®! On this occasion, she chose a pretty powder blue corduroy jumper with felt appliqués with a full swing skirt. A cotton underdress combined the look of a puffed-sleeved blouse with a ruffled petticoat. She wore black open-toe heels. Barbie® doll had her own signature black plastic tray with silver Barbie® logo to serve soft drinks on! The two drink glasses included were clear plastic with painted orange contents. The two tiny solid plastic straws are hard for collectors to find. The black tray also came flat in earlier produced versions.
