A Look Back at Barbie in 1990

Most of my favorite Barbie dolls were released in the 1990’s. I miss the ‘pink box’ days, when Barbies had cuter faces, more variety in releases and higher quality outfits. That’s why I wanted to share the videos below with you. They feature behind the scenes footage from the amazingly large Barbie Showroom at 1990’s New York Toy Fair. Why didn’t Barbie get this much spotlight when I went to Toy Fair a few years ago? It would have been a treat to see!

In the footage, you’ll see Generation Girls, Beyond Pink and other fun Barbie releases. Another fun thing to look at in the video are the fashions worn by the models/PR team. They are inspired by Barbie’s looks! Also, listen for some very 90’s lingo. So many things in this video are described as ‘hot’- so 90’s! It’s pretty hilarious to see how dated this video is.

What do you think of the offerings in the Barbie Showroom during Toy Fair so many years ago? Did you enjoy this blast from the past? Let us know in the comment area!

  1. I have one of the early Barbies. I remember playing with her at a friend’s house. We made a car out of a shoebox. Then, Barbie had no family or boyfriend. She was just Barbie. I think it’s interesting that there were videos on “how to play” with Barbie.
