This was a catalog given to store managers, a vendor catalog, also called a dealer catalog, or salesman catalog with manufacturing numbers so store managers could order items to then sell in their stores. All items in this catalog should have a packaging date of 1983, the date on the Barbie box or fashion pack should be 1983. The photographs in this catalog are similar to production, press or prototype information so the actual dolls and fashions sold in store might be slightly different have different colors, etc. This is especially true for the cheaper items and playsets. Special editions and store exclusives are usually not be listed here and may have box dates of 1983 or 1984 when first sold in 1984.
Dolls and fashions included in this catalog include:
Crystal Barbie item number 4598, 4859 and Crystal Ken 4898, Great Shape Barbie 7025, Great Shape Skipper 7417, Great Shape Ken 7318, Loving You Barbie 7072, Sun Gold Malibu Barbie and Friends, Sweet Roses P.J. item number 7455
I no longer share catalogs without the website name on them because people posted my images on Facebook and Pinterest without giving me credit. You are welcome to download and re-post catalog pages with the barbiereference.com watermark on them. A link back to my website is also appreciated.
