Despite Barbie’s initial success, many parents were concerned about the mature appearance of Barbie’s body, but Ruth Handler saw it as important to give young girls a distinctly adult role model to look up to and aspire to. She was a doll that represented a modern, well-rounded woman who could be anything from a mother to a doctor to an astronaut. Barbie Loves Elvis: Released in 1998 to celebrate the great legacy of Elvis Presley. The doll is featured in a 1950s-inspired outfit and is accompanied by a miniature record player that plays Elvis Presley songs.The 1960s is when the essence of Barbie dolls began taking shape after its initial release in 1959. There are a couple of Barbie dolls that stand out from the 60s, including the "Swirl" Barbie, the "Twist 'n Turn" Barbie, and, of course, the original Barbie. Barbie was first introduced to the public on March 9th, 1959, at the American International Toy Fair in New York. It was named after creator Ruth Handler’s daughter, who inspired her to make a doll that was based on a full-grown character rather than a baby. Ruth saw her daughter role-playing with her toys and thought of toys that could fill in the niche as nothing similar was available on the American market. She forwarded the idea of the toy to her husband, who was at the time the cofounder of Mattel, an American toy company founded in 1945. As with all kinds of collectibles – the rarer, the better. The same goes for Barbie dolls. Over the years, there have been a couple of Barbie dolls that have been sold in limited numbers. The limited editions are often made to highlight a special celebration or an anniversary. Here are some of the more memorable dolls: Created by Mattel co-owner Ruth Handler, the inspiration for Barbie was born when Handler saw her daughter play with paper dolls and realized that there was a need for more physical dolls. The idea was that young girls would be able to see themselves in the dolls, which wasn’t as easy with a two-dimensional doll. With a three-dimensional doll, you can feel it, hug it, and brush its hair, and the user gets a better attachment to it.
