Most powerful toy in the world?
She hits her half-century in 2009 but there is not a grey hair, a wrinkle, a surplus inch. Her waist remains tiny, her legs long and slim. And she is still pulling in $3.3 billion a year. Barbie – or, to give her her full name, Barbara Millicent Roberts, as revealed in a series of novels in the 1960s – is no ordinary 50-year-old. three Barbie dolls are sold every second, is a tribute to the fact that this is no mere toy: there are more Barbie dolls in America than there are people. Barbie celebrates her 50th anniversary and toy world dominance!
Wow, $3.3 Billion dollars a year that is amazing! How many barbies have you purchased?
