Barbie Doll Turns 60 with No Wrinkles in Sight
Whether you love her or hate her, it`s her birthday.
Entertainment 07 Mar 2019

Whether you love her or hate her, the Barbie doll that first hit the toy store market in the 1960s, is celebrating her 60 year anniversary – with no wrinkles in sight.
From March 6, the London department store Argos will be hosting a sprawling pop-up exhibition that walks through Barbie’s best, worst and downright weirdest dolls through the years. That includes Aqua Magic Barbie, doggy daycare Barbie and a 1995 dancefloor barbie, among others. Super Gymnast Barbie (pictured).

“Argos has stocked over 150 varieties of the iconic doll and continues to remain one of our best-selling toy ranges, resonating with every generation,” said Juliet Ward, head of toy buying at Argos.
“The Argos Barbie Exhibition is a wonderful display of how not only how the toys have developed, but how the brand has evolved and inspired the limitless potential in every child.”
