-- The Barbie doll first went on sale in 1959. Ruth Handler (wife of one of Mattel's founders, Elliot Handler) noticed her daughter, Barbara, gave adult roles to paper dolls when she played with them. In 1956, Handler bought three German Lilli dolls while vacationing in Switzerland, and used them as her inspiration in creating the Barbie doll when she returned to California. The first Barbie wore a black and white swimsuit, had the full name of Barbara Millicent Roberts, and came with either blonde or brunette hair. Source

About Catherine: I have been writing frugal tips since 1982, when I was a young divorced mom of two - for my baby product company, Born to Love. I am now mom to three sons, who are all grown up, grandma to three - and happily re-married to a wonderful man. We have rescued two little dogs, Denny and Dexter - and a cat, Bella.
