The 1963-64 dolls shared the Midge/Barbie body, and smaller lips that were raised slightly. Lips shades were lighter and came in great retro colors! Barbie® dollᄡs body had the larger neck knob which gave her a fuller facial appearance. The 1965 dolls included a side thatched rooting pattern known as a "Side-Part. " Some were produced with identical face paint as the Color Magic Barbie® doll and are known to collectors as a Bubblecut Barbie® doll with a Color Magic Face. Some dolls sold in Europe came dressed in the gold and white Fashion Queen swimsuit.
