Houses et al 1990 to 1994

The Arco Pool House from 1991 was one of the most popular Barbie houses ever.
On ground level are Barbie, Belle and Ken and on the balcony are Nichelle and Fashion Friend.
Ice Capades Barbie must work out every day
before performing her skating routines.
Wet N Wild Kira and Skipper and Hawaiian Fun Christie
try out some of the Wet N Wild sports equipment.
Pep rally at Central Junior High School
The plain white T-shirts came
with the Cool Tops Skipper T-Shirt Shop.
If you're patient, you can make Stacie stand on her scooter.
The Starlight Motor Home came with accessories
too fancy for camping:
a candelabra, wine bottle and glasses, even a teapot!
The 1990s Skipper dolls' legs don't bend enough
to allow them to mount Chelsie,
forcing them to ride sidesaddle.
The motor bike came with a helmet and seat belt
but they do not fit Skipper properly.
