I recently picked up three 1962 Barbie in-pack booklets. These beautifully illustrated catalogues show the fashion range available back when Barbie was just 3 years old – amazing to think she’s still going strong today at 60! Alongside dozens of fashion items for Barbie, Midge and Ken, other gems found inside the catalogues are the Barbie board game, the Dream House and Fashion Shop, knitting patterns, Trousseau Set and the Barbie fan club and magazine.
Below are scans from the first booklet – Barbie and Ken – the others to follow another time soon. Click images to go bigger and enjoy 🙂
UK sci-fi magazine Starburst devoted its March 1988 cover and an article to the popular 1960s Batman series. The article, written by Jon Abbott, talks about the initial success and then decline of Batman’s three series run on the ABC network airing between 1965 and 1968, in particular to the relation of other hit fantasy shows of the time such as Lost in Space, Bewitched, Jeannie,The Monkees, Star Trek, The Time Tunnel, Land of the Giants and The Green Hornet to name some. The article also discusses the erratic and out-of-sync airings on British TV, and some of the actors to play in Batman. Below are some pics I scanned.
Advertised as “The Doll You Love To Dress”, Tammy was a 12″ teenage fashion doll produced by Ideal between 1962 and 1966. Tammy was produced in three versions: a straight legs version, a bendable legs version, and a “Grown Up Tammy” version which featured an African American doll. Tammy inspired the UK’s bestselling teenage doll, Sindy, which was released in 1963, one year after Tammy. Pedigree Toys, who owned the license for Sindy, also obtained permission to use Tammy’s tag line, “The Doll You Love To Dress”.
The selected pages below have been scanned from an early Ideal Toys catalogue. The drawings are quite a charm, and the catalogue includes a checklist of what accessories were available at the time and also a price list.
