1997. Hail to the chief! Barbie doll as George Washington salutes our country's founding father, as the second doll in FAO Schwarz's glorious American Beauties Collection. Designed by Mattel's Ann Driskill, our historic Barbie doll handsomely honors our first President-- resplendent in a detailed coat and vest, ruffled jabot, plumed hat and powder white hair. A most revolutionary Barbie-- patriotically personifying the style and spirit of America the beautiful!
