1970 Blonde and Burnette Dramatic New Living, Action Accents Living Barbie, and 1971 Dramatic Living Barbie
Side glanced eyes (left) center glanced eyes (right)
The Dramatic New Living Barbie was the first fully poseable doll. She could bend her knees, ankles and elbows, and swivel at the waist with her new body! She could also do the splits! In 1971 her name was shortened to the "Dramatic Living Barbie" (They dropped the word "new" from the name on the box). She was dressed in a new swim suit with matching long wrap. The difference between the two dolls besides their clothing is the eyes. In 1970 Barbie had side glanced eyes, and in 1971 her blue eyes were center glanced. There was also a Sears Action Accents gift set that came with a doll that had the "Japan" marking and with slightly longer red hair.
