Two of Barbie doll's earliest siblings were Tutti and Todd. Barbie's young twin siblings appeared to be about 6 years old and were introduced in 1966. They were sold in the US and Europe from 1966 to 1971. Interestingly, they continued to be produced for the European market until 1980 when they were discontinued.
The vintage Tutti and Todd dolls pictured here were made of a soft, rubbery plastic and were wired a lot like Pokey and Gumby. Two other dolls which appeared along with Tutti and Todd were Chris (1967–68, 1976–77), a female doll with a different face mold from Tutti and Todd, and Carla, an African-American female doll issued in Europe in 1976 (back row). Buffy, from the popular sitcom "A Family Affair" also appeared as a Tutti doll with two pigtails in 1968 (front row).
Todd was brought back in 1991 as part of the wedding party for Midge, Barbie's best friend. The new Todd was older and had a new head mold with a copyright date of 1990 (back row). While Tutti has never been brought back, Barbie's younger sister Stacie is believed to be a modern incarnation of Tutti since she is the same size as the newer Todd doll.
Todd dolls continued to appear for the next few years in both white and African American versions but has not been seen since 2008 when Todd and Stacie were part of the Mary Poppins boxed set where they were dressed as Michael and Jane from Disney's Mary Poppins."
