Sears Exclusive Mod Standard Dressed Barbie Doll
This rare standard Barbie doll is dressed in a complete Movie Groovie fashion and has her original head cello and wrist tag intact.
She came packaged in a plain brown box marked "Sears Gift Set Sample". She is tied into the box liner with white vinyl-coated wire. Also included is a living Barbie fashion booklet. She has a blue hair ribbon. "Regular" standards had a pink hair ribbon. She has side-glancing blue eyes. Very little is known about these mod standard dolls but other Sears exclusives have been found with this simple brown packaging and were from catalog sales. This doll was probably a store sample to advertise the Twinkle Town Gift set which consisted of a blonde, brunette, or brownette Standard Barbie doll, a blue 2 piece swimsuit exclusive to this set, and the Movie Groovie fashion. In researching this post I was unable to find any photos of the original packaging of this gift set.
