#6 Ponytail Barbie
#850 Ponytail Barbie 1961-1965 (Numbers 5-7)
The 1961 number 5 #850 Ponytail Barbie has a new hollow body and new hair color; titian. Her bangs feel more coarse. She has blue eyes, red lips and available in blonde, brunette or titian hair colors. Also the T.M. symbol was replaced with the ® symbol after the word "Barbie" on her body marking. Many of the #5 dolls had a greasy face problem. (There was a breakdown in the vinyl they used to make the dolls, which soon Mattel corrected.) She's the first Barbie to come in the package wearing a wrist tag (earliest tags were red and then changed to gold foil). She is marked: Barbie® Pats. Pend. © MCMLVIII by Mattel Inc. In the box she wears her black and white striped one-piece swim-suit, black open toe heels, pearl earrings, white sunglasses with blue lens, and has a black all wire stand, and booklet.
