According to D7ana from A Philly Collector of Playscale Dolls and Action Figures, today is Barbie’s friend Teresa’s 25th birthday! Teresa was first introduced in the California Dream line from 1988 and has continued as a trusted friend of Barbie ever since. She even has her own face mold that is popular with a lot of collectors.
Her first appearance used the Hispanic face mold and her own mold was introduced in 1992, in the RollerBlades Barbie line.
The doll that Ninimomo created for my husband when he proposed to me and that was made to resemble me, was also made using a Teresa doll so you can imagine how close this girl is to my heart.
Happy birthday, Teresa! We love you!
