In 2000, Mattel introduced a line of dolls made from a material called silkstone. Silkstone is a durable material that looks and feels like porcelain. These dolls were designed with adult collectors in mind. You'll need to be a member of the Barbie Collectors club to buy some of these, as they were and are exclusive to club members.
The first silkstone Barbies were called fashion model dolls and lingerie model dolls. They are beautiful dolls that feature the 1993 resculpted face of the original 1959 Barbie face. These are some of the first ones:
|2000 Lingerie Barbie #1|
|2002 Lingerie Barbie #5|
|Barbie Fashion Model Collection 2007 - The Soiree - Blonde|
|Barbie Fashion Model Collection 2003 - Joyeaux Barbie - Redhead|
