The first Barbie doll was officially unveiled on March 9,
1959, at the New York Toy Fair and 60 years later she’s
still a sensation among children and the adults who
grew up playing with her and her friends.

Barbie doll was created by Ruth Handler, the co-founder
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.
