Identifying Vintage Julia Dolls & Clothes 1969-1972


 The Mattel Julia doll is part of Barbie's extended family of dolls. Julia is one of two personality dolls and is based on the television show "Julia", played by actress Diahann Carroll (the other doll is Truly Scrumptious).  Julia is one of the few Barbie sized dolls who has her own tagged wardrobe of outfits designed specifically for her and shown below.   Other Barbie sized vintage black dolls are Christie and Cara.
