In advance of the new Barbie movie, a Barbie Selfie filter has gone viral on Instagram and other social media platforms. We decided to jump on board with actual Vintage Barbies, Drum Major Ken (1964-65) and Drum Majorette Barbie (1964-65). No doubt, their creators were inspired by the real life majors and majorettes of the day. The resemblance to the late Gloria Delgado (Fox Tech High School Majorette, San Antonio, Texas, 1956-57), is uncanny.
Check back soon for our post on the Pep Rally Barbie Set sold in 1965, and the Ken, Barbie and Midge On Parade set sold in 1964.
