Barbie Doll History

Mattel Inc. is the company behind the production and evolution of Barbie dolls in the market. Because of the success of Barbie, it is the major revenue of the company from the past to the present. The wonderful concept of the late businesswoman Ruth Handler (1916-2002) and the magnificent design by a German doll named Bild Lilli, Barbie came to be reality. Barbie was classified as one of the important dolls promoting the latest trend in fashion dolls. In further development, the first ever Barbie doll wore a black and white zebra striped swimsuit and signature topknot ponytail, and sold in the market in two ways – blonde or brunette. Barbie's fashion clothes were designed by Mattel fashion designer Charlotte Johnson.
