1968 – Present ~ Christie O’Niel Doll

1968 – Present ~ Christie O’Niel,

50 Years of Fun and Friendship with Barbara Millicent Roberts  and Stacey!

Biography

Barbie doll’s first brown skin friend character, Christie was part of the new group of Talking dolls for 1968.

Christie was later issued as a Twist ‘N Turn version.  Julia doll, using Christie’s head/face mold, was introduced in 1969. The character appeared in the product line continuously for many years, though the original Christie face sculpt was discontinued in 1978. Christie is notable in that she has been romantically linked with several different male characters over the years.

In 1970, she was linked with Brad, the Talking Brad doll  said “Christie is the greatest”. In 1982, the Sunsational Malibu Christie doll had a boyfriend named Ken who used the Brad face sculpt with rooted hair. In the late 80s, Christie was paired with Steven. The surname O’Neill is associated with the Nikki character, who is purported to be Christie’s sister, but the surname has not been associated directly with Christie.

She appeared in the 2015 movie Barbie & Her Sisters in the Great Puppy Adventure.

She is just as big as Barbie 11 1/2 ” and thus can share her extensive wardrobe.

There are no outfits made exclusively for the Christie doll, other that her original swimsuits.

Christie™ Vintage Years

There were four vintage Christie Barbie Dolls – Talking, Twist ‘n Turn, Live Action and Malibu.  Live Action & Malibu Christie’s had long hair, the other ones had short hair.  The short hair dolls are frequently found with hair that has turned red over the years.  This is a normal variation, but dolls who retain their original dark brown/black hair color are usually considered to be more valuable.
