N: Nikki


#AtoZChallenge 2024 letter N

Yet another name that has been used in the Barbie line more than once. The name was used for Midge's soon-to-be-born daughter in the Happy Family line, but the name had been previously used for an African American friend of Skipper's in the Teen Skipper line of 1996. This is said to be the same character in Barbie's current friends line. She has been in the line since 2006, after Christie disappeared for the umpteenth time. Nikki's last name has been changed from Watkins to O'Neill, and she is said to be Christie's sister, as O'Neill has also been given as Christie's last name.

I'm beginning to wonder why Nikki was not referenced in the live action film, since she has been in many of the animated Barbie films.

I guess the movie could only show so many characters. That's my only guess as to why she wasn't in it.

So many Barbie friends. I wonder if anyone has the whole collection.

They probably wanted to get a lawyer character in instead of someone with a name so reused in the franchise.
