The Good The Bad, And The Barbie

A Doll's History and Her Impact on Us

The National Treasure

The number one doll of America made her debut in 1959. Barbie was the doll of the century in the late 1900s, and she still is today. Every little girl had to have a Barbie, but the parents, on the other hand, not so much. The parents thought of Barbie as a show off, unrealistic doll. All the kids want to do is play. It took a while for Barbie to become a thing. It was not until the Christmas of 1959. Let this be a lesson to parents that do late Christmas shopping. Parents were forced to get Barbies for their daughters for Christmas because of the fact that there were no more dolls but Barbies. Parents much preferred a doll with no figure.
