Welcome to fashiondollz.info


You are entering the fascinating world of Barbie. This page provides tons of information about Barbie - from her first appearance up to now, about all her friends and family and the Barbie Collector Dolls by Mattel.

fashiondollz.info was launched by four German Barbie collectors. First in German, but now it's also in Englisch available. Inspired by kattisdolls.net, we had the idea to take pictures of all our dolls and to put them in face-galleries to get a collection of "all" Barbies with this heads, so that Barbie identification becomes very easy and comfortable. "All" Barbies is certainly an utopy, but we get pictures from collectors all around the world who like to support our idea. So you will actually find picutres of more than 7.000 dolls in our headmold galleries, and you have a good chance to  identify your doll by the marks in her neck.

If your doll is missing in the gallery, you can send us (a good/sharp) closeup of her face and we will try to help you to identity her. The picture must belong to you / you must have the copyright on it. It will be included in the gallery then (with your photo credit of course).

Just send a mail with "Help for Barbie's identity" to Diese E-Mail-Adresse ist vor Spambots geschützt! Zur Anzeige muss JavaScript eingeschaltet sein!. In addition we would be very glad, if you could support us with pictures of dolls, which are still missing from the collection.

Enjoy and tell your collector friends about fashiondollz.info


How to identify your Barbie


Have a look in the neck for her mark. All mattel Barbies have a patent mark, that gives you the information, when this headmold was patented. The Heads are usually patented one year (sometimes even more) before the first doll with this head came to the stores. The mark includes the name Mattel and the year - for example Mattel inc. 1966 or © 2016 Mattel.



Older dolls sometimes have the mark in the neck rim.


The first step is done, you know the patent year of your dolls head. Second step: look for heads with this patent year in our Barbie, Ken or Kids sculpt collection. If not there - check even the beside series and the Movie or Celebrity dolls...

Then have a look at the picture gallery of the © year and with some luck you will find your doll and know who she is and when she came to the stores. If she is an "old" lady or a younger one...

Identify your doll with the help of the gallery and note the following indicators:
1. colour of her skin
2. her hair (colour, hairstyle, material, jewelry?)
3. her eyes (eye colour, makeup, eye brows, eye lashes, placement and number of light points)
4. earrings or none?
5. her outfit (in case she is wearing the original dress and accessoires)
