Retro Toy Chest: Barbie's Star Traveler (1976)

With not only Thanksgiving, but Christmas, right around the corner, we're launching something new here in the Archives. We call it the Retro Toy Chest, focusing on toy commercials from the 60's, 70's, & 80's.

First up is for the ladies. In 1976, Mattel expanded their Barbie line of products with the introduction of the Barbie Star Traveler motor home. Actress Judy Strangis (Electra Woman & DynaGirl, ex-Room 222), who had spent a few years doing commercials for Dodge, is featured here.

That should stir some memories now, shouldn't it?
