Today’s Friday Girl has been identified by Timmy Simpson of the Facebook Group Australian Collectable Barbie 1973-2000 as being Sparkle Beach Christie. After looking at some photos I think he nailed it although she is not wearing the correct earrings. I’ve had this doll for many years now and for most of that time she has been wearing the red dress in the top right photo. I decided on a change but I like her in red so now she has the red gown from “Barbie for President 2000”. Apparently, there were two versions of this doll, one with very long hair like this and the other with shorter hair, probably the normal Barbie length. I normally don’t like excessively long hair on dolls and often cut it but in this case, I didn’t because I didn’t want to mess her up.
Until now this doll has never had a name so as I had been watching “The Good Place”, I decided to name her Tahani.
