Have you seen the new range of Barbies? Unlike the leggy, stick-thin dollies most of us played with at some point or other in our childhood, the latest Barbies have got new bodies. There's tall Barbie, curvy Barbie and petite Barbie, all part of an aim to make them more diverse.
We're still undecided about whether we like these new versions to the iconic dolly, but we do know that we always loved and treasured the originals. For Barbie of yesteryear had so many different incarnations and careers, it was hard to keep up with her ever-changing look, from Veterinarian Barbie to Computer Engineer Barbie and Architect Barbie.
But now eBay.co.uk have come up with a ranking of our favourite dollies of yesteryear, based on their sales on site.
With more than 200,000 listings for Barbie on site, the original 11.5 inch tall fashion doll has certainly captured the imagination of Brits over the decades and unsurprisingly it’s ‘Original Barbie’ which tops the eBay chart selling more than 3,000 pieces of merchandise in the last three months.
Mermaid Barbie swims into second place with one sold every hour, and her alter ego with an equestrian side, Barbie Saddle N Ride, ranks third – selling more than 350 products per day.
Life in plastic - the top-selling Barbies:
1. Original Barbie
2. Mermaid Barbie
3. Barbie Saddle n Ride
4. Doctor Barbie
