Barbie® first stepped into the spotlight in 1959, created by Ruth Handler and inspired by a German doll called Bild Lilli. The Barbie® Collector doll was a departure from the popular paper dolls of the time, but a welcome one — today, you'll be hard-pressed to find a toy chest without a handful of Barbies® inside. Her appeal extends to adults, too, with a wide range of Barbie® dolls made especially for collectors, including porcelain versions, vintage reproductions, dolls inspired by pop culture characters, and more.
Travel the world with Barbie® dolls! We have dolls representing Ireland, China, Argentina, and Australia — each one features clothes specific to the country she represents. Go to our Gilt Little Inspirations blog for the inside scoop on these timeless collector's items.
