Barbie, Ken and Midge Wardrobe Booklet, 1962 (yellow version)

Here is the third of the three 1962 Barbie in-pack booklets I recently added to my collection. These beautifully illustrated catalogues show the fashion range available back when Barbie was just 3 years old!

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 the complete scans from the yellow version wardrobe booklet – Barbie, Ken and Midge.

As always, thanks for looking 🙂

Captain Power was a sci-fi/action TV series that ran from 1987 to 1988 in the US and Canada. The toys (produced by Mattel) were noted for their use of clever audio and visual interaction with segments of the TV show. The show received criticism from a few quarters because of its ‘dark’ subject matter and promotion of violent themes’. A second series never made it past production.
