© 1965 - New Japan Midge Facemold

In the begining of the 60th Barbies entered Japan. But the regular Barbie was not very successful. So Mattel produced specially "Japan Barbies" with an more asia-style make up and designed two new facemolds for the japanese market - the Japan New Midge and the Iki Iki Eli face.

The Japan New Midge was produced from 1965 untill 1966 and only sold in Japan. Like the Fashion Queen Barbie and the Wig Midge it was a wig head with molded brown hairs. She was sold with a dark brown wig.

Midge had glossy brown eyes. On her slightly opened lips was a cherry mouth painted. Because she was only produced over two years and only sold in Japan she is quite difficult to find and accordingly expensive

Thanks to C. who allowed us to take fotos of her Midge. Her Copyright is © 1965 but we didn't dare to take her head off for a sight on the headmark inside the rim. So sorry no completely headmark information - until we find someone who is courageously.
