The inspiration for Barbie came from American businesswoman, Ruth Handler. The doll was then manufactured by the American toy-company, Mattel inc. and launched in March of 1959.
Mattel inc. now sell on average 100,000,000 Barbie dolls worldwide every year. With hundreds of variations and thousands of collectors, it’s no wonder Barbie made it onto our list.
