The "Mod" era began in 1967 when Mattel released the newly designed Twist 'n Turn Barbie Doll. Between 1967 and 1972 more "mod" dolls followed. These dolls are not all the dolls Mattel released during this time frame, but these represent the ones I'd classify as the Friends and Family from the "Mod" era. (To see "Mod" era Barbie's, click the Barbie Doll link above.)
Three teenage girls joined the Barbie line. (Francie actually debuted in 1966, but she didn't get her twist 'n turn waist until 1967.) These three all shared their young, hip fashions. They were Francie, Barbie's teenage cousin, Casey, another "Francie size teen" and Twiggy, who was based on a real life "teenage" fashion model from London. Little girls everywhere loved having teenagers in Barbie world!
Seven more "mod" adult friends were available during this time too; Stacey, P.J., Christie, Jamie, Steffie, Ken and Brad.
These teens and adults came in several variations. Some wore wild outfits, others very trendy, but whatever they wore, they all kept up with the fashion scene. They represented the youth of America!
