The Barbie doll made its debut at the American Toy Fair in New York on March 9, 1959. Created by Ruth Handler, the co-founder of Mattel, the doll was named after Ruth’s daughter, Barbara.

Over the years, this doll has kept up with the times with fashion and careers. Today, Mattel has started a new Barbie campaign and they are striving to make dolls that represent a wide range of Americans. Learn more about this new step towards diversity at their website.
