Barbie® doll followed the steps in her "Tennis Rules" manual (included) and won set after set! Her crisp white tennis dress with back zipper sported a cute pleated skirt over the built-in panties. Her orange-edged white cotton sweater had a tennis racquet insignia. (Be careful, when the sweater is laundered, the color runs! ) Blue plastic goggles, white knit socks, and tennis shoes kept her on the move. A plastic tennis racquet with real plastic stringing and two white plastic tennis balls completed the winning set! Some earlier versions have included the insignia sewn-in rather than the more commonly found in applique.
