A quick history of Barbie
First, you should know that the Barbie toy line is manufactured by a powerhouse in the world of toys, and that is Mattel, a company which also handles other famous toy lines and franchises such as Monster High and Ever After High, Thomas and Friends, American Girl, and, for boys, franchises such as Masters of the Universe or Hot Wheels. Maybe you did not know, but Mattel even produces WWE, because they create the dolls based on the wrestlers.
Of course, Barbie is the most important propriety they have, which is quite obvious, since it is the most popular one they have sold. Also, Barbie has been around since 1959, more than sixty years ago, and we are sure that she will stick around for at least sixty more. Ruth Handler is the businesswoman who has been credited with the creation of the doll, and she has certainly created the most iconic fashion doll out there.
The idea of the doll came up to Ruth after seeing her daughter play with dolls and having them act out in the role of adults. At the time, most dolls were created in the form of infants and little kids, so that they better identify with the children playing with them. Ruth saw a doll in Germany that was exactly what she imagined and brought it back to the USA, where she redesigned it and gave it the new name of Barbie.
In addition to the new concept of having adult characters as the toy, another new and fun thing about Barbie is the clothes and accessories that come with it, because they are interchangeable, meaning that kids were and can dress up Barbie in various ways, using the same doll. Another new aspect was the fact that the doll was marketed on television exclusively, which was something new for the toy line.
Barbie started in an option of both blonde and brunette, but we now know that the blonde Barbie is the most popular version of this character, so let’s get to know her better because she is not just a toy, she has a big history and a big personality!
Who is Barbie?
Of course, her full name is not just Barbie, but Barbara Millicent Roberts. Bet you did not know that, right? She was born in Wisconsin, both the Willows High School, as well as the Manhattan International High School. Barbie is a woman who is ready to face anything that the world throws at her, with her being brave, fierce, dedicated, and hard-working. She is also a fashionista, and she does everything in style. She loves it when she can wear a new outfit to impress the people around her, which is something you can help her out with by playing our amazing Barbie dress up games!
Barbie is also a doll with a purpose, which is why she is depicted having any kind of job, even those that are more usually attached to men, such as when she was an astronaut when she was a race car driver or a doctor. You might not know this, but Barbie has also been both a pilot and a flight attendant, and she has had all sorts of vehicles during the years, from convertibles to jeeps, and she also loves animals, which is why she has had no less than forty pets!
Of course, you also need to know about Ken, who is her on and off boyfriend, who is also a toy. They have a strong relationship, but they went their separate ways for two years, after which Ken had a makeover, and years later they became an official couple again. Ken is Barbie’s male counterpart, so of course, he would also be a fashionable man who is always in style. The two of them met on the set of a TV commercial they filmed together. Over the years, Ken has had no less than 40 occupations, so he was quite busy!
The world of Barbie and her friends is even bigger than her and Ken, of course. We’ve got Skipper, who is her younger sister, who is usually depicted as a teen, who is inspired by Barbie but is also in competition with her all the time. The two sisters also have two younger siblings, the twins called Tutti and Todd. Other adult dolls in the series include Midge, Christie, who is the first African-American friend of Barbie introduced, Teresa, also known as the Spanish Barbie, or other friends such as Stacey or PJ.
Barbie in film and television
As we think we’ve already mentioned, Barbie is more than just a toy, as she has a whole media franchise around her, with multiple films having been created, as well as television series, about which we would like to tell you a few things right now.
Barbie in the Nutcracker, where she played the main character in the Nutcracker show came out in 2001 and was the first film in the series, with lots of other entries to the franchise being created over the years, such as Barbie: Fairytopia, Barbie: A Perfect Christmas, Barbie in Rock'n Royals, or Barbie: Spy Squad.
The most prominent series at the moment, which is a mixture of film and television episodes is that of Barbie Dreamtopia, which features the character of Chelsea Roberts, who is Barbie’s new younger sister, with whom she travels in Dreamtopia, which is a land of dreams made up of her imagination, where everything is possible!
Because kids wanted to know more about Barbie and her sisters, a companion piece for the film series was created, in the form of the television show known as Barbie Dreamhouse Adventures, which gives more detail into the daily lives and different antics of characters like Barbie, Chelsea, Stacie, or Skipper.
