Vintage Barbie goes travelin' carrying case

Here is Barbie's hard-to-find Goes Travelin' carrying case. This case was issued in 1965 and came in pink (salmon), blue, and yellow. On one side the graphics depict a plane flying over a castle (Disneyland perhaps?) and the other side depicts a car.



There is a see-through window on both sides from which you can see Barbie looking out-too cute! The manufacturer of this case was Standard Plastics Products (SPP).


The interior of the case has one accessory drawer, a plastic seat for Barbie, and a small area to hang clothes. The Barbie  shown here was the childhood doll of my friend Lois who gifted her to me when I started collecting vintage Barbie.

  1. I never knew that this case had a different image on each side, I always thought that they made two different cases, one of a car and one of a plane. Learn something new every day.
    Thanks for sharing!

  4. The castle image is in Bavaria. It is called Schloss Neuschwanstein, and was built buy King Ludwig.
