Teen Skipper debuted in 1997 with both head and body marked © 1995. The same head mold was used on Barbie's friend Becky (1997-1999) and the African-American version of Happy Family Midge (2002-2004). Other dolls that have used the Teen Skipper body include Generation Girls Tori, Chelsie, and Mari (1999-2001), Mystery Squad Kenzie (2002), and Princess of Japan (2003).
