I stumbled across a flickr photo of the very first Barbie which really grabbed my attention and got me curious to check out her "evolution" throughout the years but I noticed for an extremely popular toy line Barbie lacks when it comes to websites. Most of them are general doll sites with bits and pieces of info covering selective periods only and a lot of them tend to be outdated.

I couldn't even find a proper active Barbie forum beside a yahoo group and about.com, meanwhile toy lines such as My Little Pony/Transformers/He-Man/G.I.Joe have at least a couple of forums and detailed web guides dedicated to each one of them.

Also noticed out of all the links posted in this thread, the official website is the only site that has a domain name with the word 'Barbie' in it, the rest are mostly hosted on free servers. Maybe I'm over analyzing but I find this a bit odd.

Why did I stumble on this... Now I'm obsessed with finding out which dolls I had as a kid. I found two through the flickr group but no others. Think my main issue is that I can't differentiate between the dolls I had (Judiths and Barbies I think) and the dolls a friend of mine had (only Barbies, but newer releases as she was younger).

Really wish there was a decent ID site. Really weird that there isn't one seeing the amount of people that collect them.

I agree, there should be a site that identifies all of them, grouped by year or whatever. And I find it really hard to ID certain outfits too...I am always searching for more sites to add here that I think will be helpful though Smile

I just found this site: sindyzhome.piczo.com/?g=1&cr=7

It has lots of promo and some MIB pics for Sindys particularly the Hasbro era. Its a little bit of a jumble, but well worth a scroll through.
