Today’s Friday Girl is Naomi’s reproduction TNT Barbie wearing Smasheroo, an outfit first issued in 1968. Naomi remembers being 8 years old when the TNT Barbie’s were first released and that she really, really wanted one. However, she never got one so when this reproduction came out she got one for herself.
This Barbie used to be on display in Naomi’s toy collection room but has been packed away for some time now. Naomi had planned to post about her last year as part of the Barbie’s 60th birthday series of posts. However, she was nowhere to be found and only recently turned up in a box of other things and was brought to Sisters Beach. When I said that I needed to find a doll for this week’s post Naomi got her out for me to photograph.
