Doll houses unfolds the hard toil and path that your dear
Barbie has taken in reaching up to its present status and
pace in the dolls world. The Barbie Doll houses story begins
in the month of February 1959 when Barbie for the first time
introduced at American International Toy Centre in New York.
The founders of Barbie, Ruth and Elliot
handler designed her improving over the German, Lilli. You’re
Barbie, when appeared for the first time it was named Barbie
Millicent Roberts after the name of their daughter Barbie.
She was 11 1/2 inch tall and weighing 11 ounces. She was dressed
like a teenage model in a black and white striped swimsuit
with sunglasses, high-heeled shoes, and gold-colored hoop
earrings for the first time.
From the launch of Barbie on that auspicious
day she never looked back and became symbol of American society
and culture in its attire and accessories. She was liked by
teenage girls of that era and preferred over other small popular
Betsy, Wetsy and Chatty. From the launch of Barbie in 1959,
the Barbie has under gone many changes in style, pattern and
design of Barbie and divided into the two major divisions
Vintage and Modern.
Vintage Barbie was started in the 1960s
and survived till 1980.The designers of vintage Barbie improved
Barbie by giving it features like white irises, more curved
eyebrows, and either hole in her feet or copper tubes in legs.
The Classic doll is also known as Ponytails, American Girls,
Twist and Turns and Malibus.
As the 1960s gave way to the "British
Invasion", Barbie again became a trendsetter. Not only
did she get a fashion makeover, but her body style, hair,
face sculpting and makeup changed as well. In addition to
wearing the popular mod fashions, Barbie body underwent dramatic
changes including a new Twist 'N Turn® waist, and a more
youthful face with rooted eyelashes. As hair play became an
important aspect of the Barbie experience, it began wearing
her hair long and straight, and in varying colors - perfect
for little girls to brush and style!
In the early 1970s, Barbie became more
pose able than ever before, with bendable wrists, elbows,
and ankles. This allowed dolls to participate in all kinds
of new activities, including gymnastics, horseback riding,
and ballet. And like the previous decade, Barbie embodied
the fashion and lifestyle trends of the world around her.
During the 1970s, her fashions included the "prairie"
look, the "granny" dress, the "California Girl"
suntan, and the zany glitz of the "disco"
Till the introduction of Vintage Barbie

includes the largest collection of dresses for any till now.
Then Vintage barbie Dolls were soon succeeded
by Modern Barbie Doll which has produced in 1986. In 1988,
the happy holiday series carried the sway of modern Barbie
