I have always hoped to run across one of these at a garage or rummage sale.
I love the makeup style of the Ponytail Barbies and the 1950's and 1960's style clothing that you can buy for them is wonderful!
I am astounded at how much these dolls cost!
The doll pictured above is selling for $7,800 over at Barbara Peterson's Online Catalog (once you get to her website click on Vintage Barbie & Friends located at the left handside of the page, then Barbie & Friends Dolls, next you click on Ponytail Barbie and then finally click on the picture of #1 Ponytail.)
About has tons of articles on collecting Barbie.
And Mattel's offical site, Barbie Collector, is incredibly informative
