Sun Lovin’ Malibu Christie escaped to Malibu Beach, California, to soak up the sun on her summer vacation! This beauty in a bathing suit is another one of my favorites in my collection and I’m sure she’s a favorite of many collectors as well.
Look at that face! Isn’t she gorgeous? It took me a while to admit that the steffie face mold is my favorite, especially when it comes to Christie’s. Christie is one of Barbie’s best friends, introduced by Mattel in 1968. Since then many Christie dolls have been released in different Barbie lines. If you are looking for a Christie doll to add to your collection, you will know that they are some of the most expensive, especially if they have a steffie face mold!
Sun Lovin’ Malibu Christie, made in Philippines in 1978, is part of the Sun Lovin’ Malibu line alongside Barbie, Ken, PJ, and Skipper. She likes to sunbathe on the beach or pool and show off her tan. In fact, she has real tan lines as if she’d been in the sun! She’s famous for her peek-a-boo tan!
Sun Lovin’ Malibu Christie has nice thin dark hair that is originally styled in a pretty fun way. Her eyes are honey color with a playful and expressive look. She has a very soft and delicate makeup, perfect for a day at the beach! And what can I say about her “skin” tone? Her dark chocolate skin looks simply amazing, as sun-kissed!
Like all dolls in the Sun Lovin’ Malibu line, Christie comes with a beach bag and cool mirrored sunglasses. But I really like her peach pink monogrammed two-piece swimsuit! I think it goes perfectly with her “skin” tone, and accentuates Christie nicely! Now, Cristie is ready to meet her friends at Malibu Beach. They’re sure to have endless fun in the water and sand, and of course, in the loving sun of Malibu!
