Mum-of-two Stacey McBride-Irby talks about the new mixed race Barbie dolls and what it takes to be a doll designer. By Kyrsty Hazell. Barbie has had a busy 50 years.
Barb threw away her Talking Barbie replaced after the doll's legs fell off and she received a black-haired Living Barbie. The other reason I disposed of Stacey was that I thought she was an elderly lady. I did not know of any woman personally or on TV at that time who had "platinum" hair, yet both of my grandmothers had white not gray hair. Ironically, my sister's Barbie's knit top and her lid still survive, as do my Stacey's swimsuit and her lid. As an adult collector, I now own both dolls myself.
