Do you know the history of Barbie?


Barbie-the most adorable of all toys that the history has ever seen and recorded is an all time favorite of kids and adults.

Tell me honestly, can you take your eyes off this picture after just a glance?

I was asked by brother's daughter long back abut the history of Barbie. I learnt something about it only today. But I am afraid I can't share my knowledge with my brother's daughter as she is a full grown woman now.

Do you know that the original inspiration for Barbie dolls comes from dolls developed by German propagandists in the late 1930s to impress young girls with the ideal notions of Aryan features? The proportions for Barbie were actually based on those of Eva Braun.

To bring Barbie to America, we must credit Ruth Handler. Another interesting fact about Barbie is the doll's design was inspired by a German doll called Bild Lilli.

Barbie's full name is Barbara Millicent Roberts.
