Day 3- Black History Month

Feb 3, 2017 Black History Month

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."
