Barbie doll was first introduced to the world at the New York Toy Fair on 9 March 1959 where she appears in the now famous black and white striped swimsuit. This is now her official birthday. Her debut look was polished off with her signature ponytail, a hair style representative of the times (1959).
Barbie's full name is Barbara Millicent Roberts and is from Willows (fictional), Wisconsin where she attended High School. Her signature colour is Barbie Pink.
