A fashion doll created by the American toy firm Mattel, Inc. and first introduced in March 1959, Barbie is a popular doll among young girls. Ruth Handler, an American entrepreneur, is credited with the invention of the doll, which she based on a German doll known as Bild Lilli.
Barbie is the symbol of a line of dolls and accessories manufactured by Mattel, which also includes additional members of the Barbie family and collectable dolls. Barbie has been a significant element of the toy fashion doll business for more than sixty years, and she has been the target of various disputes and lawsuits, many of which have included parodies of the doll and her lifestyle, which have resulted in countless settlements. Barbie dolls have been sold in excess of a billion units, making them the company's most popular and lucrative product line.
The Barbie doll brand has grown to include a media franchise, which includes a long-running series of animated films that started in 2001 and has continued to this day. In the United States, the films were shown weekly on the Nickelodeon cable channel from 2002 until 2017.
Barbie and her partner Ken are considered to be the most popular dolls in the world, according to certain sources. Due to its role as a vehicle for the selling of associated items, the doll has completely altered the toy industry in wealthy communities across the globe (accessories, clothes, friends of Barbie, etc.). Don Richard Cox, in a 1977 article for the Journal of Popular Culture, observed that Barbie has a significant impact on social values because she conveys characteristics of female independence, as well as an idealised upscale life-style that can be shared with affluent friends, through her multitude of accessories.
The sales of Barbie dolls began to fall dramatically in 2014 and continued to decline until 2016. During the year 2020, Mattel sold $1.35 billion worth of Barbie dolls and accessories, representing the company's strongest sales rise in more than two years. This is an increase from the $950 million in sales the company achieved in 2017.
