of Mattel, whose daughter was named Barbara
.

The full name of the first doll was Barbie Millicent Roberts,
and she was from Willows, Wisconsin. Barbie’s job was a teenage fashion model. Now, however, the doll has been
made in versions connected to over 125 different careers, including President of the United States.
