As with all of my Barbie's the boxes may show wear and tear. Given some of their ages some boxes may have discoloration, dimpling, scratches and tape and glue that have simply eroded with time.As will everything we sell there are no cats, no cigarettes and no stinky smells on our items. This Barbie box does have discoloration due to age. The front plastic is not completely clear it is turning a tad yellowish. Not bad just a tad. Other then that she is amazing and beautiful. Ready for a new home.
