Barbie Story

Barbie is an iconic figure in toys. She was created with the help of mom, Ruth Handler, when she noticed that there was a gap in the market for adult-bodied dolls. Ruth, in conjunction with her husband, Elliot, who was a co-founder of Mattel, created the doll and she was named Barbie, to honor their daughter, Barbara.

Barbie was first introduced in 1959 at the American International Toy Fair. This first Barbie was dressed in a black and white striped bathing suit and came in both blonde and brunette hair choices. Approximately 350,000 Barbie dolls were sold in the first year that they were produced-to the delight of thousands of girls of all ages.

Barbie has changed her look many different times since her first debut. From her body to her clothing, she has reflected the change in values and times over the last half century. Over a billion Barbie dolls have been sold in over 150 countries worldwide. Mattel claims that a Barbie is sold every three seconds, which is amazing.

One toy that is sure to be recognized in most any area of the world is Barbie. Whether you are looking for a gift or just want to put a smile on your daughter’s face, you will find that Barbie comes in a wide variety of choices for you to find the perfect doll.
