Brunette Bend Leg Francie head shot from 1966
In 1966 Bend-leg Francie was introduced with brown eyes, blonde or brunette flip style hair and bend-legs #1130. She's was Barbie's teenage cousin, who just returned from England. She was the first doll to have real eyelashes. The early bendable dolls had a greyish/tan color skin, and the later issued in 1966 had a pinker skin tone. The pinker dolls came in the suit with the white background. In 1967 Mattel added the #1170 twist and turn waist to her body. By 1969 she cut her hair, and in 1971 she grew her bangs out. In the box was the doll, black wire stand, eyelash brush, booklet, one- piece swimsuit, white soft heels. #1130 is marked: 1965/Mattel, Inc./U.S. Patented/U.S. Pat. and #1170 is marked: ©1966/Mattel, Inc./U.S. Patented/ U.S. Pat.
