1967 Barbie ad with a Young Maureen McCormick



Interesting factoid:

The Twist 'n Turn Barbie was based on '60's supermodel Jean Shrimpton.

Of course, what really makes me cringe about the ad is the turning in of "old" Barbies. Yeah, T 'n T's are worth a bit these days, but a lot of girls were probably trading in Barbie #1's for the new stuff--dolls worth thousands of bucks in today's market.
