How Barbie has changed over time. Subscribe: https://goo.gl/Hnoaw3 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Even if you weren’t a huge Barbie fan growing up, there’s still a pretty good chance you've played with one or at least owned a couple. Though she wasn’t always on the right side of history, Barbie has come a long way from her 1959 roots. In this video, we are going to explore the evolution of the Barbie doll from the 1950s to today! We’ll show you which doll from Germany was the original inspiration for Barbie, as well as the Hollywood icons that served as muses to Ruth and Elliot Handler, the founders of Mattel. We will also show you some of Barbie’s careers throughout the years, as well as her controversies. The iconic doll and Mattel made huge strides in becoming all-inclusive. We'll show you what 2013 headline-making Barbie might have been the shove that Mattel needed to do so. Once you are finished watching the video, be sure to tell us what you think in the comment section below, and don’t forget to subscribe to TheTalko! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheTalko Twitter: https://twitter.com/thetalko Instagram: https://instagram.com/the_talko ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos and articles visit: http://www.thetalko.com/

The 80's barbies are way better then now! There bodies were much good quality --more hair, stuff, just beautiful, the ones now are simply and bit ugly

Barbie dolls are not just dolls. They are a reflection of society and era. The particular barbie matches the particular era, kind of interesting.

Just so you know, if you think your childhood is ruined because Barbie and Ken broke up.............. Don’t feel bad because they got back together
I still have my blonde bubble-cut Barbie from 1962. I also have her original swimsuit, the Ken doll from that era (with a velveteen crewcut, and a Midge from that era. Also a lot of the clothes she came with and the original trunk. Later on I bought a Malibu Barbie for my nieces to play with when they visited and also to make clothes for. I still love my Barbies at age 67. One I did not see in your video is Native American Barbie that I bought in about 1995 when my son was going to marry a girl who looked like the doll. I even got a light haired Ken and was going to dress them up in wedding finery to use at a bridal shower but the engagement was broken. (I still have those dolls, though) This video was fun!

I'm 61 years old, so I must have gotten my 1st Barbie in the 60's...I can still see her, wearing a red one piece bathing suit...She was beautiful!!! I had many Barbies after that, but none were as beautiful as she was...I still have some packed away , I know I have original Midge, but her head is cracked...I'm going to go look for them now.....

I love that now in 2018 they have barbies with different body types and skin colours i think it,opens a broad spectrum to kids to see that they dont have to be perfectly thin, as long as their healthy they are beautiful.

The only thing I don`t like about Barbie evolution is when they made her look fat.
The world was probably way better in the 90's before phone
