One of my favorites, the "Bendable Leg Barbie" was this pretty girl's original name. But because of her hairstyle, it was eventually changed to the "American Girl". These bendable leg dolls were made from 1965-1967. Most have the shorter page boy haircut with blonde (several shades), red or brunette hair color. But there are some rare versions floating around out there. Some had longer hair, sides parts, high color faces, or unique hair colors. Here is an example of one rare American Girl with the longer hair style with a high color face and a beautiful silver shade of hair color. She's magnificent! This girl sold on eBay for $909.99 on August 2nd.
