The ever-popular Barbie doll was founded in 1959 by Ruth Handler, inspired by her young daughter Barbara’s love for fashion dolls. Barbie clothes and accessories have evolved with fashion over the decades, from the 1970s Malibu Barbie to the 1990s Totally Hair Barbie. The extensive range now includes the classic Barbie and Ken dolls, Chelsea dolls, pets, playsets like the Barbie Dreamhouse and Dream Camper, as well as lifestyle and gift sets for kids.
