Barbie: An American Icon

December 4, 2023 @ 7:00 pm

In the 1950s children could only play with baby dolls. There were no adult dolls. Then Ruth Handler decided to invent a doll with adult features. The doll named Barbie was a “Teenage fashion model.” Barbie could be dressed in a variety of fashion outfits and she lived in a “Dreamhouse.” She had a boyfriend named Ken and drove a Corvette convertible. Barbie’s careers included doctor, astronaut, pilot and even a matador. Learn how the world’s most loved doll came to be. Barbie: An American Icon presented on Monday, December 4, 7pm by Rick Feingold, lecturer in American Business History at Bergen Community College. He holds an MBA from Penn State University and a degree in History from Rutgers University.
