No. 17- Maybe his name is Preston

When Mattel created the Basic Barbie collection, they gave them numbers and not names.  I like my dolls to have names, because it gives them some type of personal history when it comes to talking about the doll.  I think that Model No. 17 name should be Preston.  The photos below show him surrounded by the other Basic Barbie dolls.  I have two of No. 10 , her dress was changed to a higher neckline. I love the low neckline dress.  No. 4   is wearing a custom crochet jacket. No. 8 is the only one that has survived to appear in the other Basic Barbie collections.
(From L to R- No. 4, No. 8, No. 10, No. 17, No 8, No.10, No. 8)
