Through computer animation, Барби has become the звезда of several feature films, including “Barbie in the Nutcracker,” “Barbie as Rapunzel,” “Barbie of лебедь Lake” and “Barbie as the Princess and the Pauper.” And she has staked her claim on the Web with the Популярное Make Up Барби Game, which allows girls to alter her hair, makeup and в общем и целом, общая look.

In the late 1990s, computer technology boomed, and in 1996, Mattel launched www.barbie.com, the official Барби website. In 1998, “My Design” was introduced on the site, allowing girls and collectors to decide what their Барби doll...

Eight months after Barbie’s debut at the Toy Fair, Mrs. Handler was, according to the Los Angeles Times, driving a розовый Thunderbird and running a half-million-dollar business.

Barbie sales continued strong throughout the early 1960s; her clothing, her accoutrements, and her Dream House adding to skyrocketing success. In 1961, Mattel brought out the ultimate Барби accessory: Ken, Barbie’s square-jawed, crew-cut sporting steady beau named for Mrs. Handler’s son.

In the late 1960s, with the women’s liberation movement, Барби seemed out of step with the new social reality and faltered a...

There's a place Ты can go
Where your сердце is free
There's a rhythm
That's right for your soul

Take a breath, find your courage
And make the leap
Cause your feet always know where to go

And Ты dance and Ты dance in an endless flow
In the grace of a perfect design
Stepping out of the dark and into the glow
And the whole world will see when Ты shine
You can shine (shine)
Shine (shine)

There's a beauty already inside of you
There's a difference that only you'll make
Every place that Ты spin brings Ты somewhere new
Finding hope every step that Ты take

And Ты dance and Ты dance in an endless flow...

"Connected" lyric ( Sara Paxton )

I'm blind-folded on this roller coaster they call life.
Keep trying to make it through the Далее turn, knuckles white and holdin' tight.
So here I go, takin' a curve,
but I know that I'm never alone.
I think of you, I know you'd never let me go.

I feel connected, protected, it's like you're sitting right with me all the time.
You hear me, you're near me,
and everything else's gonna be alright.
'Cause nothin' can break this, nothin' can break this, nothin' can break this time.
Connected...connected inside.

It's not an accident, the time we spent apart.
But now we're so close,...

Барби has younger sisters (Skipper, Stacie, Kelly, Krissy, the short-lived twins, Tutti and Todd), cousins (Francie and Jazzie), Друзья (Midge, Miko, Whitney, Nikki, Devon, Kira, to name a few) and of course, the steadfast Ken. But her parents played a minimal — and totally off-stage — role; no parent Куклы were ever produced. She is an agent on her own behalf, a singular sensation, living her own life, forging her own destiny. In all the scenarios in which she has played, the one role Барби never took on was that of wife, even though Mattel has made numerous bridal ensembles for her....

The Барби clan began its life as white and remained so until 1967, when “Colored Francie” made her debut. But this Francie doll was produced using the existing head molds for the white Francie, and, other than her dark skin, lacked any other distinguishing African features. The first African American doll in the Барби круг is usually regarded as Christie, who appeared in 1968. It wasn’t until 1980 that actual black and Hispanic Барби Куклы hit the market. Yet despite Mattel’s attempt to take a еще racially sensitive stance, Ann Ducille, professor of American and African-American...

Барби was born during the golden age of American post-World War II prosperity with its lushly saturated Technicolor movies, tidy new suburbs and cars as large as beached whales.

In the early 1950s, Mrs. Handler got the idea of creating an adult doll after observing her daughter’s fascination with adult paper dolls, whose clothing she was able to change.

Mrs. Handler envisioned a doll onto which girls could project their desire to act like, and indeed become, grown women. But the designers at Mattel initially balked, saying the level of detail that she wanted would make the doll prohibitively...

Part of Barbie’s power is the kind of projection she invites. “I designed Барби with a blank face so that the child could project her own dreams of the future onto Barbie,” Handler сказал(-а) in her book, “Dream Doll.” “I never wanted to play up the glamorous life of Barbie. I wanted the owner to create a personality for the doll.” Even the talking Barbies that appeared on the market never enjoyed the ascendancy that the mute, yet eloquent Куклы did.

Barbie was both a child of her time and completely cutting edge. As the historian and Автор Stephanie Coontz has written, “the marketability...

There has always been a Барби backlash; mothers who refused to buy her, women who actively bashed her. Journalist-turned-novelist Anna Quindlen fantasized about driving a “silver lamé stake” through Barbie’s plastic heart; Pulitzer-prize winning novelist Carol Shields сказал(-а) Barbie’s expression, with “its dumb shine of self-absorption, its trippingly tartish look of one who is out for all she can get,” is “eerily disturbing.”

Barbie has been held responsible for eating disorders and charged with offering girls a wholly unrealistic body image. A typical Барби doll is 11.5 inches,...

Barbie, the single most successful doll ever produced, was the invention of Ruth Handler, one of the founders of the fledgling toy and novelty company, Mattel.

The petite plastic doll, named after her daughter, Barbara, made its debut on March 9, 1959 at the American International Toy Fair in New York City. For the occasion, Барби wore a black and white striped bathing suit, shoes and sunglasses. Her price was $3, a modest sum even then. A handful of outfits was displayed alongside her, costing between $1 and $3.

At least half of the Toy Fair buyers wanted nothing to do...

(Barbie toys with moving, but she remodels instead)

Move или remodel? That's a Вопрос many homeowners face, and Барби is no exception. After checking out houses across the country, the iconic doll decided to remodel her three-story Главная in Malibu, Calif.

"That's where most of her family and Друзья are, so she decided to keep her house but make it еще up-to-date," сказал(-а) Michelle Chidoni, Барби spokeswoman and Mattel Corp. brand manager.
The result is the 2013 Dreamhouse, which hit stores Aug. 27 with a suggested price of $184.99.

In keeping with the lighthearted spirit of Mattel's marketing...

Ruth Handler watched her daughter Barbara play with paper dolls, and noticed that she often enjoyed giving them adult roles. At the time, most children's toy Куклы were representations of infants. Realizing that there could be a gap in the market, Handler suggested the idea of an adult bodied doll to her husband Elliot, a co-founder of the Mattel toy company. He was unenthusiastic about the idea, as were Mattel's directors.

During a trip to Европа in 1956 with her children Barbara and Kenneth, Ruth Handler came across a German toy doll called Bild Lilli. The adult figured doll was exactly what...

Jay's Rocawear line looks like its going into the toy business by rolling out a line of Барби dolls.

In celebration of their 10th anniversary, Rocawear has teamed up with Mattel for a special collection of Барби Куклы -- all of which are black and rocking Rocawear clothing.

Further details regarding the deal and line of Куклы was unknown at press time.

Rocawear was created by Jay-Z and Damon Dash in 1999, and going on to become one of the biggest urban lines in fashion. Both founders have since sold off their stakes in the company, but when Jay-Z sold his interest for $204 million in 2007, he maintained some authority over the development of products, licensing, and marketing.
