Mysterious veils, blue smoke rising from a golden lamp, and a Far Eastern temptress who beguiles the hearts of many! Barbie® doll enjoyed such a fantasy in her Arabian Nights costume fashioned in a luscious pink satin and chiffon. Her fitted blouse featured a back closure and her long skirt was a combination of satin and gold embellished chiffon, which fastened in a layer of pleats at the side. Her matching pink chiffon sari flowed in front of her face revealing only her beautiful eyes! The golden accessories provided exotic accents to the ensemble. Gold foil over plastic formed the slippers with up-turned toes, "gold" filigree drop earrings, gold and turquoise bead necklace, three snake bracelets (one gold and two turquoise), and of course, the golden plastic lamp completed the ensemble. A full-color theatre program also included.
