Are School Teacher Barbie's still hard to find?

Post by Jacke » Thu, 13 Jun 1996 04:00:00



At one time I was looking for a school teacher Barbie and
the only one that I could find was on the secondary market.
Today, I was at a nearby Walmart and they had about 10 of
them.  I just about passed out.  Just my luck I did not have
enough money to purchase one, today, but came home and told
one of my sisters  about it and she told me she would pick
it up for me tomorrow and save it for Christmas. This suits
me fine.  

Just wondering why I found these today?  She as a boy and
girl with her at desks, a chalk board, bell that rings,
clock and pencil sharpener.  She also says "Great job" and
"Try it again."  I had once heard something about ones with
no panties, hers are painted on.  (I guess the other
shoppers thought I was sick, because I stood there and held
the box upside down trying to see them.)

Thanks in advance for any information.

OH, goodness, no.  Mattel reissued them (this time with panties painted on) and
those teacher's are all over the place!!!  Some collectors are saying the
pantiless ones are more valuable, but if you never remove the doll from the box,
what difference does it make?

An interesting sidenote.  I was talking to the guy who handles the Mattel account
at a Walmart in Allentown.  I mentioned that later this year Mattel is issuing a
Teresa version of the teacher doll.  He said that Walmart had had an exclusive of
these in the fall, where he had one carton where Barbie was brunette.  I, of
course, asked if the packages said Teresa.  Nope, just like with the skating star
where the brunette version is still called Barbie, the Walmart's were also.  
Anyone out there have one of these?

Jackee:  They are all over the place here in Mississauga.  I laughed when
I read about you holding the boxes upside down trying to see if she had
panties.  I did the same thing at the TRU where I first saw them and the
looks I got were priceless.  When I did it on the third doll, the clerk
came over and in a rather chilly voice as if he could help me.  I just
said nope and left.

Cheers,
Sheila

I have seen several Teacher Barbies in the last month or so.  I think the
ones on the shelves now have the painted undies on whereas the others
didn't.

Just out of interest - the ones available here in Western Australia syill
have no underwear whatsoever. Yes, we did check every box in TRU (no we
didn't get any strange looks..)
