Happy 50th Birthday, Barbie!

The Barbie Doll celebrates its 50th Birthday today, March 9th, 2009! Barbie Trivia: during her first year in stores, about 300,000 Barbies were sold at $3 a pop. The average price it would cost you to get one of those original dolls in good condition today: $27,450. Happy Birthday, Barbie! We all wish we had your glamorous life, amazing wardrobe, huge rack, mile-long legs and teeny tiny waist!
