Christie was Barbie's first Black Friend. She was created in 1968 and changed the doll world. This was the first time that a fashion doll from a major line was given a different name from the main character and had her own distinct style.
She was created in a talking version and she would say. "Hi, I'm called Christie, Let's go shopping with Barbie., I'd like to be a fashion model. Should I change my hairstyle. Let's visit Barbie and Stacey. I love to try on clothes."
