Happy 50th Birthday Barbie!

This year Barbie will celebrate her 50th Birthday! WOW!! And so far that lucky girl is showing no signs of aging!

She took the world by storm, surprising skeptical toy critics at New York's Toy Fair in 1959. With her good looks, charm, and charisma, she won audiences over in record time. Soon, little girls across America, and later, the world, were singing her praises. In the coming years, both adults and children would collect her in record numbers. Today she remains one of the hottest selling toys in the world.

Being a product of the 80s and early 90s, I had many different Barbies... my favorites of course being the ones dressed in the neon clothes with the teal eye shadow.
Happy 50th Barbie! Wishing you more birthdays to come!!
