Happy birthday Barbie:    

On this day in 1959, the first Barbie doll goes on display at the American Toy Fair in New York City.

Eleven inches tall, with a waterfall of blond hair, Barbie was the first mass-produced toy doll in the United States with adult features.

The woman behind Barbie was Ruth Handler, who co-founded Mattel, Inc. with her husband in 1945.

After seeing her young daughter ignore her baby dolls to play make-believe with paper dolls of adult women, Handler realized there was an important niche in the market for a toy that allowed little girls to imagine the future.

And lots of Barbie dolls were sold over the years!
