    The first Barbie doll I received for my 5th birthday was a Malibu Barbie (or Suntan Barbie as I liked to call her). But I did have a Colorforms dress up set w/ this version of Barbie.

      If you watch the full episode of ‘The Tonight Show’ I posted today you’ll see Johnny Carson and Ed McMahon looking and laughing at Malibu Barbie and Ken dolls (among other toys). It’s after Carson’s opening monologue.
