Barbie (Mattel)


Whether you love her or hate her today, chances are, if you're female, you owned several Barbies as a child, and spent long hours imagining yourself as an adult, through her. Although the basic way girls play with Barbie remains unchanged, she's evolved over the past 40 years to keep up with current trends, activities, and interests. If you object to her "femme fatale" demeanor, look for Barbies with more modest, "teen-style" bodies or Barbies that make good role models (such as Women's World Cup Soccer Barbie).

Ages 3-10 years
