Reproduction ‘Nite Lightning’ Stacey © MATTEL
Stacey. Barbie’s ‘British Chum’. Introduced in 1967, Stacey arrived from Swinging London and turned Barbie’s world Mod-side down!
Stacey came in two versions, Twist’n’Turn and Talking Stacey. Two hairstyles, a long pony and a short flip. Two colours, Blonde and Titian, a whole new wardrobe of groovy fashions, and in the talking version, a cute British accent…
Collectors always have favourites. Usually many favourites and usually favourites that change. All the time.
“Francie is my favourite!”
“PJ is by far the prettiest…”
“ Christie is the craziest!” (Watch this space for part 2)
Stacey has the prettiest smiley eyes and little toothy grin. No matter how many favourites I have, I always come back to Stacey…
