Under Construction!

This is my first website about fashion dolls. Anything from the famous Barbie to more obscure doll lines like the defunct Fairytale High will be talked about here!

General facts:

  • Barbie was created in 1959 by Ruth and Elliot Handler. the after Ruth witnessed her daughter, Barabra, playing with paper dolls and realized the lack of 3-dimensional "adult" dolls on the market. On a trip to Germany, Ruth came across a Bild Lilli doll, a doll that fit the her idea of an adult doll little girls can play with. However, Lilli was not a child friendly character, like at all. She was originally from a rather "grown up" comic, but that's okay we'll just tone down the racier elements and call her a teenager. And that was how Barbie was born.
  • Over the years, Barbie has gotten quite a large friend group. From her oldest friend Midge(1968) to Newer girls like Daisy(2018), Barbie is almost never seen alone.
  • Since 1959, roughly one billion barbie dolls have been sold.

I don't own the Barbie brand nor the "Barbie Girl" song. Barbie is owned by Mattel Inc.
