9 March - Barbie Day
Barbie's full name is Barbara Millicent Roberts. She's a Midwest gal. The first Barbie doll sold for $3. Barbie's boyfriend, Ken, showed up two years after Barbie in 1961. Barbie has more than 130 careers over the years, including nurse, rock star, TV anchor and president.
A skillful poker player, Ruth Handler was ready to risk her firm's entire future on a single advertising campaign. Ruth wanted to make a toy for girls, and knew that she had a test market close at hand, her daughter Barbara. The idea emerged during a trip that the family took to Switzerland in 1956.
In March 1959, a doll named "Barbie" launched onto the American toy market, sporting a black-and-white striped bathing suit, pouty red lips and a sassy blonde pony tail. The leggy, 11-inch plastic figure—full name: Barbara Millicent Roberts—was the first mass-produced toy doll in the U.S. with adult features.
