(Boys, intellects and serious people – don’t bother reading this)
52 years ago tomorrow, the Barbie Doll was launched …..
This was her first “persona” – before she became rocker, firefighter, doctor….
Sexy in a swimsuit….(with all the 1950’s curves)
I had one as a child….it was purple…..and chewed by our dogs. (after its hair was chopped, and its toes mangled)
Barbie has been sold 800 million times…..and has probably spurned many a teen girl’s eating disorders, and serious ethics debates about her white skin.
But for the iconic original look (above) we celebrate.
