Kelly, Barbie Doll's Little Sister, Gets Another Re-Design

By February 17, 2006

Follow me on:

Kelly, Barbie's little sister, has had several re-designs in the past few years. The original Kelly was proportionate to Barbie in size and design. Then, some of the Kelly dolls produced were given giant heads and skinny bodies (lollipop/anime style). At Toy Fair 2006, Kelly still has her larger head, but her body has been re-designed to be chunkier and more in proportion with her head. Overall, she is a nicer doll now (and will fit in little hands better), but I'm not sure she is in proportion to Barbie, so collectors may still prefer the first style Kelly for doing small scenes, photography, and display with their Barbie dolls.

Hi Tracey,

You can find the new Kelly dolls at Walmart. I purchased a set just yesterday called “Soggy Doggy Friends” which includes Kelly, her friend Kayla, and a puppy Pumpkin…with extras.

I really love the new 6″ Kelly doll size. She’s much easier to hold and dress than the smaller version of Kelly.
