Barbie's story - information
As you probably know, this doll was produced by the world-famous Mattel company. It is the most recognizable character in the history of toys that have been created all over the world. The person who is behind the creation of this doll is none other than Ruth Handler in 1958, so as you can see this character is already quite old. She is certainly much older than you are. The doll was first shown at a trade fair in New York in 1959 and the rights were immediately bought by Mattel, who still owns them today.
An interesting fact is where the name of the character comes from. It all began with the daughter of the creator of this character, her name is Barbara and diminutive called her Barbie so that's how the name was created by him just this doll. At first, however, no one was interested in such a doll, which is already an adult because children always played with dolls that represented the characters of nymphs. But in Germany he saw one of these dolls that was already an adult. Her name was Bild Lili and so this adventure began. Interesting fact is that Mattel bought the rights to Bild Lili in 1964 and stopped producing her in order not to compete. The first dolls were made in Japan and her clothes were sewn only by hand. In the first year of her production more than 350 thousand dolls were sold, so it is an impressive result. The belly button for the character appeared in 2000, before she didn't have it.
