Mattel had a promotion going on. You could trade in an old barbie for the new twist and turn Barbie #1162 plus $1.50. And that is exactly what I did! Mattel gave the old dolls to charity. The only difference between the trade in and the store verion was the type box she came in. Also the #1162 did not come with a stand. In 1969 her hairstyle went from long to a new flip style often referred to as the "Marlo Thomas" doll from the television show "That Girl". In 1971 her eyes changed to center glance eyes rather than side glance eyes. The plastic stand doubled as a seat when turned over too. And one more thing, Barbie's swimsuit changed evey year too! 1967: Salmon colored vinyl bikini, salmon net covering, salmon hair bow, X-stand (only #1160), booklet. 1968: two-piece pink swimsuit with dimond patterned top, pink vinyl shorts, green belt, pink hair bow, stand, booklet. 1969: One piece diamond pattern colorful swim suit, yellow band around the neck, stand, booklet. 1970: One-piece pink & white abstract swimsuit, stand, booklet. 1971: One-piece pink striped swimsuit with pink stand up collar, stand, booklet.
