Barbie Doll Toy

For the children of this century, Barbie doll toy is perhaps the most loved and most cherished doll toy. Around the world in every country, the craze and demand for Barbie doll toy have increased with each passing day. Barbie was introduced in the year 1959 at the American International Toy Fair in New York. Elliot Handler, the founder of Mattel, Inc., and his wife, Ruth, created Barbie. The doll was named after the Handlers' daughter, Barbie. Ken is the name of the couple's son. She was an aberration in the world doll toy market.

Rather than having a baby face, Barbie was distinguished by her womanly figure, fashionable dresses and painted face. She got mixed reviews, but was an instant success with the kids. Her popularity is still on the rise. Each week, Mattel sells over 1.5 million dolls—that's two dolls per second. Ninety percent of all American girls in the last forty years have owned at least one Barbie. If every Barbie doll ever manufactured were laid end to end, they would circle the earth three-and-one-half times! Her sidekicks like Ken and Skipper enjoy a vast popularity. Special clothes and accessories are fashioned specially for Barbie by world famous designers. Mattel has given Barbie many different careers during her run as one of the world's most popular toys. She has been a teacher, astronaut, veterinarian, soldier, singer, flight attendant, and model.
