Description

The original Black Barbie® made her debut in 1980. Though beloved friends of Barbie® – like Christie and Francie — were introduced over the preceding decades, this was the first black fashion doll to be hailed as Barbie® herself. She wore a stylish red dress and had her hair in a curly afro hairstyle; she sparked a new era of possibility for girls everywhere. To celebrate her ruby anniversary, 40th Anniversary First Black Barbie® doll fittingly wears a flowing, red trumpet-styled gown with cut-away sleeves, inspired by her iconic outfit. Her hair is styled in a sophisticated up-do, a subtle nod to her original look. Finishing touches include golden hoop earrings, a necklace and a matching clutch. Now, like then, this anniversary doll captures the doll’s signature statement: “She’s black, she’s beautiful, she’s dynamite!” This collectible Barbie® Signature doll comes with a doll stand and Certificate of Authenticity. Doll cannot stand alone. Colors and decorations may vary.

Brand

Barbie

Barbie was founded in 1959 by Ruth Handler, a mother and visionary entrepreneur, whose inspiration for Barbie came from watching her daughter project her dreams and aspirations onto paper dolls. Recognizing a gap in the market, which only offered baby dolls for girls to imagine themselves as caregivers, Ruth invented the fashion doll category with a three-dimensional doll that girls could use to imagine their future selves. Ruth’s philosophy behind Barbie was that through the doll a little girl could be anything she wanted to be and that she has choices.
