In the series of Barbie toy dolls, Kelly Roberts is presented as one of Barbie's "younger sisters". She debuted in 1995. Originally the baby of the family (replaced by her younger sister Krissy Roberts in 1999), she also has three older sisters named Stacie, Chelsea , Tutti Roberts, and Skipper and a brother named Todd Roberts. Kelly appears to be preschool or kindergarten age, but she officially acts around 3 or 4 years old[citation needed]. In Europe, she is known as Shelly. Kelly dolls have since ceased production in late 2010. She has been replaced by another sibling of Barbie, Chelsea who appears to be 5 to 7 years old as opposed to Kelly who looks to be of toddler or preschool age.

Excluding a brief period when the design of the Kelly doll was changed to have an oval-shaped head, larger eyes, and longer limbs marketed under the name "Sweetsville," Kelly dolls have stayed true to their original design which debuted in 1995. A Kelly doll was introcuced in the early 1990s as part of the Midge and Allen wedding party, a set of 6 dolls dressed for a wedding. This Kelly doll is 7 1/2 inches tall, exactly the same size as the ring bearer, Todd, who is wearing a Tux. She is wearing a peach dotted Swiss dress and carries a white basket of flowers as she is the flower girl. She was made for a very limited time as part of this set. She has long blonde hair. The Todd doll which is made from the same mold has fuzzy brown hair. They both appear to be 6 to 9 years old and are very rare and she is a very pretty little girl doll. It appears that there were no clothes other than the wedding attire made for either of these dolls.

Kelly also has a club on a tree house. There are games in which she appeared as Kelly Club House Fun for Game Boy, she is to do a magic show to please your friends, Kelly Club Pet Parade PC has to make a mascot parade with Chelsie, Keeya and Tommy. Kelly Club 2006 for the PC that has adventures with his friends.

Traditionally, the Kelly dolls were sold by themselves with a set of accessories; for example, Bathtime Kelly was sold with a Kelly-sized bathtub, tub toys and a diaper. Kelly was also sold in sets with Barbie, as in the Shopping Fun Barbie & Kelly set. The friends of Kelly were sold in single boxes. Kelly dolls are currently sold in sets of five as well as single packages.

Kelly's friends are made using the same body mold as her, including Tommy, her male counterpart.
