Through computer animation, Barbie has become the ster of several feature films, including “Barbie in the Nutcracker,” “Barbie as Rapunzel,” “Barbie of zwaan-, zwaan Lake” and “Barbie as the Princess and the Pauper.” And she has staked her claim on the Web with the populair Make Up Barbie Game, which allows girls to alter her hair, makeup and globaal, algemene look.

In the late 1990s, computer technology boomed, and in 1996, Mattel launched www.barbie.com, the official Barbie website. In 1998, “My Design” was introduced on the site, allowing girls and collectors to decide what their Barbie doll...

The Barbie Team is looking to u for video concepts for the Barbie® “I can be™…” campaign. The goal is to have a video that resonates with people, and there is flexibility in the globaal, algemene tone – stories/videos can be anywhere from humorous/playful to sentimental/touching in theme.

Barbie has younger sisters (Skipper, Stacie, Kelly, Krissy, the short-lived twins, Tutti and Todd), cousins (Francie and Jazzie), vrienden (Midge, Miko, Whitney, Nikki, Devon, Kira, to name a few) and of course, the steadfast Ken. But her parents played a minimal — and totally off-stage — role; no parent dolls were ever produced. She is an agent on her own behalf, a singular sensation, living her own life, forging her own destiny. In all the scenarios in which she has played, the one role Barbie never took on was that of wife, even though Mattel has made numerous bridal ensembles for her....

The Barbie clan began its life as white and remained so until 1967, when “Colored Francie” made her debut. But this Francie doll was produced using the existing head molds for the white Francie, and, other than her dark skin, lacked any other distinguishing African features. The first African American doll in the Barbie cirkel is usually regarded as Christie, who appeared in 1968. It wasn’t until 1980 that actual black and Hispanic Barbie dolls hit the market. Yet despite Mattel’s attempt to take a meer racially sensitive stance, Ann Ducille, professor of American and African-American...

Barbie was born during the golden age of American post-World War II prosperity with its lushly saturated Technicolor movies, tidy new suburbs and cars as large as beached whales.

In the early 1950s, Mrs. Handler got the idea of creating an adult doll after observing her daughter’s fascination with adult paper dolls, whose clothing she was able to change.

Mrs. Handler envisioned a doll onto which girls could project their desire to act like, and indeed become, grown women. But the designers at Mattel initially balked, saying the level of detail that she wanted would make the doll prohibitively...

Part of Barbie’s power is the kind of projection she invites. “I designed Barbie with a blank face so that the child could project her own dreams of the future onto Barbie,” Handler zei in her book, “Dream Doll.” “I never wanted to play up the glamorous life of Barbie. I wanted the owner to create a personality for the doll.” Even the talking Barbies that appeared on the market never enjoyed the ascendancy that the mute, yet eloquent dolls did.

Barbie was both a child of her time and completely cutting edge. As the historian and auteur Stephanie Coontz has written, “the marketability...
