Happy Birthday Barbie! Iconic doll turns 58 years-old

  • 0

Almost every little girl grew up with a few Barbies ( not to mention the Barbie dream house, cars and thousands of accessories, memories! ).

Mattel first introduced the iconic teenage-fashion doll at the New York Toy Fair on March 9, 1959.

Ruth Handler created her and named it after her daughter after seeing her little girl playing with paper dolls.

Handler says she wanted a 3D for girls to live out their dreams. And so far, that dreams seems to be coming true. Barbie has been transformed into any career imaginable; from an nurse, teacher and firefighter to a astronaut and president.

It just goes to show girls can do anything they put their mind to!

Happy Birthday Barbie! Keep inspiring!
