It is hard to believe the Barbie® doll was invented more than 50 years ago. She was created in 1959 by Ruth Handler, who was also the co-founder of Mattel. Ruth’s daughter was called Barbara and Barbie® made her appearance at the American Toy Fair in New York City. Barbie’s friend, the Ken doll, who was named after Ruth’s son, was introduced two years after Barbie in 1961. Barbie’s full name was Barbie Millicent Roberts, was from Willows, Wisconsin and her job was a teenage fashion model. Barbie® came either as a brunette or blond, but in 1961, a red haired version was added. Almost 20 years later, the first African American Barbie® and Hispanic Barbie were introduced. Barbie has been through a lot of changes and careers and her latest adventure is about her sisters and a pony. Barbie® and Her Sisters In A Pony Tale toys and DVD are hot this year and very little girl will want one under the Christmas tree.
