It’s Barbie’s 50th Birthday!

Posted by Smurfette On March - 9 - 2009

I grew up playing with Barbie.  She had a lot of clothes and shoes and she always looks good in any of them. My first Barbie doll had long blond hair and I quickly learned that her hair is more delicate than mine. I once washed and blow dried her hair. After that her hair was never the same again. 

I can’t believe that today is Barbie’s 50th birthday! She made her debut on March 9, 1959. By the way, do you know Barbie’s official name? It’s Barbara Millicent Roberts.  For the longest time, I’ve only known her as Barbie.

Do you think Barbie looks like this now that she is 50? I think this Barbie is too old to look 50. I always assume Barbie will still look hot in her fifties. This is probably suitable for 70 year old Barbie. What do you think?
