VINTAGE 1978 BARBIE SUPERSTAR STAGE SHOW PLAY SET
Pick-up preferred at San Bernardino area, ships from the US only.
Size of box: about 23" x 17" x 4.5"
Model no. 2328 from 1978. Assembly required. Good condition on the toy, box is in fine condition; it is a little bashed up with tape on the sides, the front has some torn areas. The plastic set is in good played with condition, the remote does not work. Plastic parts are all great but the top sticker has creased as it is not stuck on full center. The plastic tiara has broken as it is a thick plastic and not very malleable. It is missing the music record, instructions, and possibly 2 more transparent stands but otherwise appears intact.
It includes 3 doll stands, tiara, trophy, 2 microphones, the podium, guitar, 3 fabric fasteners, starry fabric, 2 illustration boards, sticker sheet, 2 show cards, main stage with remote and pillars. There is one pink barbie tile that does not belong to the set. It has an image of Barbie on it and looks to be 1970s for some sort of image transfer activity perhaps. Self pick-up preferable in or near the San Bernardino, CA area. Shipping is available upon request.
