Funny - She Doesn't Look 52!

| No TrackBacks

Barbie.jpgWhen the Barbie doll first went on display on March 9, 1959 at the American Toy Fair in New York City, she was the first mass-produced toy doll in the United States to sport an adult figure and features. Over the years, Barbie has been wildly popular, but she has garnered her share of controversy. Although fans appreciate that the doll is portrayed as having various careers from doctor to astronaut, her detractors have said that her rather unrealistic physique can contribute to negative body image in young girls. Whatever one's opinion, there's no denying Barbie's popularity, since more than 800 million of the dolls have been sold around the world.
