1967 was probably my favorite year for Barbie because the Twist n’ Turn Barbie (#1160) with beautiful long straight hair and long rooted eyelashes was released, as well as the trade-in promotional doll (#1162), which I purchased. They were both the same doll, but with different packaging. This same year Sears released the exclusive and very rare gift set #3303, Beautiful Blues Set. This magnificent ensemble came with a blue sparkle one shoulder dress accented with a white satin bow and white satin trim, matching blue satin coat with white fur trim, blue heels, and a blue clutch purse. But this elegant set wasn’t complete without a Twist n’ Turn (#1160) Barbie Doll. This doll had one stunning feature which the other dolls on the market didn’t have. She wore blue eyeliner! This week one of those special girls showed up at auction (without the outfit). She sold for a cool $530.99.
