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.
