The legendary Barbie celebrates her 60th birthday this year. The doll was introduced by Ruth Handler at the American Toy Fair in 1959 and was an instant hit. She named the fashion doll "Barbara" after her daughter. Today, the doll is a role model for older children of a self-confident modern woman who has many occupations and is not afraid of any work.
