Who's been a Member of a Rock Band, a woman's World Cup Soccer player and a successful Business Woman? If you haven't guessed by now it's "Barbie"!
She debuted at the American Toy Fair in New York in 1959 and cost a whopping $3.00 each. I got the second one sold in my hometown that year and she wore a black and white striped bathing suit, open-toed shoes, sunglasses and earrings. I out grew her about a year later, but I never forgot her. Wish I still had her I bet she'd be worth a fortune!
Over the years Barbie has achieved the title of the most popular fashion doll ever created. Better yet good for Ruth Handler her inventor....We just gotta give her some credit!
