Reviews

Barbie Around The World is an identification and value guide for those Barbies that have been made and sold in 140 different countries. It is written by J. Michael Augustyniak and published by Collector Books. It covers the period from 1964 to 2007. Barbie's face is changed to appeal to buyers in foreign countries, and today, she is as diverse as the various peoples of the world. The introduction to the book includes notes of Barbies in many different countries.
