© 1969 - Brad / Curtis Facemold

In the midsixties Christie became Barbies new best friend. Of course she needed a boyfriend - that was Brad. He appeared 1969 and was the first afro-american male doll. Brad had a molded afro. He was issued in two editions: Talking Brad and Bendable Leg Brad. After that he disappeared. But his sculpt stayed in use!

The new user of Brad facemols was Curtis - friend of Cara who was a temprorary the new afro-american girlfriend of Barbie. The both didn't stay for long. Only one Curtis was issued - the Freemoving Curtis. From 1976 Christie was Barbies afro-american again. Brad and Curtis were out of reach, so Christie looked for a new friend and found Steven, who had his own facemold and stayed her friend until today!

The facepainting of both Brads and Curtis is nearly identical. They can only be identified by their body.
