2010

 

Sisters Skateboard

Big changes were in store for Barbie's family in 2010. First of all, it was revealed at the National Barbie Doll Collectors Convention that the youngest sister, formerly Kelly, was to be renamed Chelsea. Secondly, new head molds were in store for Skipper, Stacie, and Chelsea. Despite being a blonde in the promotional photo, the actual Skipper doll that hit the shelves in November of 2010 is a brunette. Skipper is paired with Chelsea in the Sisters Skateboard set, while Barbie and Stacie are sold together as Sisters Skate. Skipper's head and body are both © 2010, and she is shown below in comparison to 1997 Teen Skipper and 2009 Skipper.

 

 

Sisters' Beauty Fun

This Skipper playset includes a bathroom set with individual sinks and personalized towels for Skipper, Stacie, and Chelsea. Note: The promotional photo again showed a blonde Skipper.

 

Sisters Sleep Out

Here's another set that pairs Skipper and Chelsea. A corresponding Barbie and Stacie set has the girls going fishing.

 

Sisters' Bike for Two

This latest set includes a bike for Skipper and an attached tricyle for Chelsea that the dolls pedal along with.

 

It's time to say goodbye to Teen Skipper as we knew her. Nevertheless, I hope the new incarnation of Skipper has a long future ahead of her.
