Here's a trio of lovelies that show how uniquely different Bubblecuts can be! These bubbles all date from between 1961-64; but with their different face molds, make-up, and hairdos; each has a distinctive look and personality. These dolls have been played with, but they have made it through the years with not too many signs of wear.
Our lovely White Ginger Bubblecut has all original make-up except for retouched lavendar lips. She reminds me of Marilyn Monroe in the vintage movie "Niagra". She has the smaller face mold of the early bubbles and the dark turquoise eyes typical of White Ginger bubblecuts.No green ears, nose nips, or neck splits. She has matte vinyl with no greasiness.
Her hair is still a fairly light blonde shade, and she has a smoothly waved bubble. Her body has the earlier Barbie MCMLVIII marking, and is in Excellent shape with no stains. She has all of her red nail polish.
She does have a poke mark on her left upper arm (see the 2nd to last pic for close-up), and some light scratches on her right shoulder blade and upper back right thigh. Her joints hold all poses. Not to be overlooked is a sexy Titian Redhead Bubble!She definitely looks like Lucille Ball from the Lucy Show days. She has the later chubbier American Girl face mold and lots of the lighter colored red hair used in the later bubblecuts. Her coral lips have been retouched, but her brows are original.
They are a bit light, but all there. Her face is a bit tan, but she looks great in vivid colors. No green ears, nose nips or neck tears. She has several tap marks at her left ear and one on her cheek as shown in the close-up pic; her left ear has 2 pokes at the earlobe.Her Near Mint body is stamped with the later Midge 1962/Barbie 1958 marking. No stains, chews or poke marks, and she has all of her nail polish. The Fudge Brunette Bubblecut has a bit of a sassy attitude! She also has the chubbier AG face mold with lots of wavy dark hair! I like the curl at the right side of her face (left in the pic), much like side part bubblecuts have.
Her light coral lips were retouched as they had rubs. Her brows were light so they were color-washed. No green ears, nose nips, or neck tears. Her body is marked with the later Midge 1962/Barbie 1958 stamp.
It's in Excellent condition with no stains. There's a little scratching at the breast tips and at the shoulder blades.
She has all of her nail polish.
