In 2000 the entire Barbie line got a new logo, similar to the original 1959 logo in that it’s cursive, but it’s at an angle and slightly different font. The Fashion Avenue line packages got a major re-design and new line names. Each fashion pack has a name in addition to an item number. A new line Mix N’ Match debuted in 2000. It is shown in the Pre-Toy Fair Sell Sheets, but not the UK nor USA Vendor Catalogs. It includes two complete fashions, a cardigan or light jacket, along with lots of plastic and cardboard accessories. This is the first general release multi-fashion pack for the Fashion Avenue collection, if you don’t include the packs with matching outfits for Barbie & Kelly. The back of the package is very different from the other lines this year. It shows the outfits and all plastic and fabric accessories, and Barbie dressed in five combinations. The cardboard accessories are not shown on the back, but that’s usual for Barbie in the 2000’s. This line is not included in the UK nor USA Vendor Catalogs I have seen, but two of them are shown in the USA Sell Sheets. Incredibly detailed realistic fashions for Barbie doll with mix-and-match separates, so girls can create their own cool outfits.
