Barbie - doll manufactured by Mattel, one of the best-selling toys and at the same time the most well-known icons of mass culture. Barbie was created by Ruth Handler in 1958 based on the adult German doll Lilli. Barbie made her debut on the New York toy market on March 9, 1959, when she bought the rights to Lilli by Mattel, founded by Ruth and Elliott Handler. The name Barbie is a diminutive of the daughter of Ruth Handler, Barbara, for whom Ruth bought a copy of Lilli while in Switzerland. The full name of the doll is Barbara Millicent Roberts. It is only part of an invented biography, in which there are, among others, boy Barbie - Ken and her friends - Midge and Teresa. Barbie also has three younger sisters named Skipper, Stacie and Chelsea.
