About this title


Over 700 million Barbie dolls have been sold since 1959 and each day, somewhere in the world, two Barbie dolls are bought each second. Barbie is the quintessential beauty and a potent reminder of childhood. She's slim, leggy, confident, cheerful, smart, and accomplished; her resume lists careers as an astronaut, cowgirl, veterinarian, executive, disco queen, UNICEF ambassador, nurse and ballerina. She drives her own Porsche 911 and Corvette and owns horses, dogs and cats. Barbie's wardrobe reflects her active life. In addition to clothes for her many careers, she has outfits for tennis and swimming; denim skirts and t-shirts for casual fun; elegant luncheon suits; sumptuous evening gowns in all shapes and colours; disco fashions; skiwear; and even a spacesuit. This volume, which presents Barbie's outfits grouped together by type (categories include Tailored Chic, Outerwear, Intimate Apparel, At Ease, Career Moves, and Very Special Occasions), is a visual history of Barbie, and of international fashion over the course of three decades. It should be treasured by little girls, fashion enthusiasts, nostalgia buffs, Barbie collectors and women of all ages.

Store Description

The books listed on ABE are not always available in our stores. Please do not call our store locations for these items. With 3 stores less than 1 hour outside the DC/Metropolitan area (1 in Gaithersburg, 1 in Frederick and 1 in Hagerstown, MD), we have the largest selection of books in the tri-state area. Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
