Who had the best tan? Well of couse it's the #1070 The Sun Set Malibu Barbie! She had beautiful long blonde hair with lavender sunglasses on top her head. Mattel used the Stacey head mold on this girl. The Malibu dolls were an instant hit. So popular, that Mattel added Malibu friends and family soon after.

Along with the doll, the packaging included an aqua one-piece swimsuit, lavender sunglasses, and a yellow towel. In 1975 she wore a rose colored swimsuit but no additional accessories.
