In 1964, Skipper Roberts became Barbie doll's little sister and her very first family member. Now, in 2014, Mattel reintroduces Skipper doll in a sweet outfit that commemorates her original look. Her blue and white dress is perfect for her birthday party, with a sleeveless bodice and full short skirt. Decorated with lace, bows and a charming print, it looks absolutely a-doll-able with the wide-brim sunhat trimmed with blue ribbon. Short white gloves, white ankles socks and white ballet flats are girly touches. Skipper doll comes with party supplies that include a cake with candles, a present, two candies, an invitation and napkins. Plus, a book featuring classic Skipper looks celebrates this little sister's history. Includes doll and themed accessories.
Vintage Mattel Skipper dolls are occasionally sold through national auction houses. However, there is a larger and more varied selection of Skipper dolls frequently advertised on eBay.

Mattel introduced Skipper in 1964 as Barbie’s little sister. When she was first manufactured, Skipper was meant to be a little girl around ten years-old, although older versions of Skipper were later introduced. She was released as an alternative for mothers who objected to Barbie’s more adult look and body.
