I don’t know why I get such a thrill from old Barbie commercials, but I do! From the comments and likes on Facebook when I have shared them there, you love them too!
I wanted to share one today that is new to me. It is called “The Barbie Look” and it is from 1965. It features the American Girl Barbie and Bendable Leg Midge, Ken, Allan and Skipper.
In addition to the dolls. it also gives a great overview of the clothing and furniture that year. It is a fast and fun commercial – who knew they were rapping in 1965?
(“You can tell it’s Mattel, it’s swell!+ was used on all Mattel products and ads from 1959 through 1970.)
