Skipper Highlight Reel: Baton Twirling Skipper

Baton Twirling Skipper was part of a ‘lot’ I won recently. Released in 1992 by Mattel, this Skipper was released in both a white and black (aa) skin tone.

While both versions wear identical outfits and share the same hair style, the black Baton Twirling Skipper has a pair of large purple eyes with some brown accents.

Baton Twirling Skipper wears a pink and orange uniform with long sleeves and silver accents. To top it off, she wears a tall pink marching hat and bright pink boots. Baton Twirling Skipper

Her long black hair has some curl to it and a lot of bounce. And of course, being the early 90’s, Skipper has larger than life bangs.

One of the best things about this release is her baton! Skipper can hold her baton thanks to the skin tone colored plastic piece at the end that fits her molded hand. The baton spins fluidly after you give it a light push.

    I don’t have this one, but I really wanted this one when I was a little girl, back in the 90s.

    You just made me travel back to Christmas of ’92, I was 5, and I found my very first Skipper (along with a fashion pack) under the Christmas tree :), I had the white skin tone version and I loved her outfit!

    Hot high school fun?? LOL
    My daughter is looking through the 2008 Barbie collectors guide. So many amazing dolls!

    She is so cute. I love her outfit. Is it rare for the black version of Skipper to have purple eyes? I am asking of course for this type of Skipper with the cartoon look.

    I love the purple eyes! Such a pretty doll.

    Oh, I remember owning this Skipper as a kid. (The white version, though.) Such a cute addition to your collection, for sure!

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen this doll before, but I love how happy her expression is – how did they manage to give her such a joyful look, I wonder!

    AA Skipper is still eluding me (she’s VERY rare over here) so I’m super jealous 🙂 her eyes are gorgeous. I think the white version of this doll was my first ’87 Skipper? But I’ve never managed to definitively ID her.

      I’ll keep my fingers crossed that you cross paths with an AA Skipper soon! There are some very pretty ones out there.
