Barbie Head Numbers

Apart from the copyright notice on the edge of the neck, the newer Barbies also have their catalog number on the back of the head and sometimes a production code. The catalog number is usually hidden underneath the hair, but by using a toothpick the hair can be carefully moved away from the scalp just enough to read parts of the number.

Within the Dolls since ca. 1998 the number on the head is matching with the catalog number of the first doll that was released with that particular face.

It looks like the catalog number on the head refers to the face (rather than to a face/head combination) as my multiple Summer, Fashion Fever Barbie and Open-Mouth Millie faced heads each have the same codes even though the shape of the heads may differ.

Sometimes Mattel does a slight revision of the face. In this case, a revision code (‚-1‘) is added to the catalog number. With a slight revision like this, the copyright year on the neck is not changed.
