Francie and Christie
Today I listed several doll articles on eBay, one of which is about Barbie and her friends. I was hesitant to list this particular article because of the above illustration, which appears on page 5 of the 6-page article. I wanted to keep the article solely for the illustration. Since I decided to let it go, I thought it would be a good idea to share the scanned image and captions here.
Illustration 6. Left is Francie, Barbie's MODern cousin, looking very Mod, while out with Barbie's friend, Christie. It was wonderful to see dolls of other races join the circle of Barbie's friends and family.The text in the lower right-hand corner of the illustration provides the registered trademark information for all dolls included in the article.
Illustration 7. Barbie with a Marlo Thomas "flip" hair style, helps Skipper's friend, Fluff, skateboard!
