© 1965 - Francie® Facemold

1966 Francie bendable legs, blonde #1130Francie is the teenage cousine of Barbie. She is younger than Barbie but older than Skipper. Her body size is between the both. Francie got her own cute face with a closed mouth, she has brown eyes, mostly with rooted eyelashes.

The first Francie appeared in 1966, she was produced until the mid seventies. Since the late 90th Mattel issues irregular Repro Francies with the original face. The vintage Francies differ in terms of the body (bendable legs, straight legs, twist'n turn) and in their hair color and style. Also the lip color and the Rouge changes. The eye painting stayed nearly identical through the years.

Francie was the first doll in the Barbie family that was produced in a caucasian and afro american version. However the Black Francie brought not the expected success, so the production was discontinued after two dolls. Today the Black Francie is rare and expensive, that brought some Collectors on the idea to dye a white Francie black - with more or less success.

The Francie Facemold was not only used for Francie, it became furthermore the face of the Baggy Casey and 1969 Truly Scrumptious Doll (Chitty, Chitty, Bang, Bang) - one of the first Celebrity Barbie dolls. Truly was produced in two versions: Standard Doll with straight legs und Talking Truly Scrumptious. Both have blue eyes, rooted eyelashes and blonde hairs with a ponytail. The Truly Scrumptious Barbies are also rare and hard to find.

Further excluive and rarities are the Japan Francies, produced for the japanese market. After Barbie, Ken, Skipper and (Japan) Midge had entered Japans children's room Francie followed in 1966. Four different Japan Francie were produced. The most popular Francie had brunette hairs, brown eyebrows, blue eyes and pink lips. Another one was blonde. The rarest Japan Francie has dark brown hairs, the eyes and eyebrows in the same color and rose lips.
