Today is the birthday of a true American icon: Barbie!
Barbie was brought to life 53 years ago. She started out as a doll. A toy for young girls to play with, to dress up in pretty clothing. But she has turned into so much more. Barbie is a doctor, a dancer, an astronaut, an athlete, a teacher….she is everything. She has taught children all over the world that you can literally be anything you want to be. She has shown that women need not stand in the shadow of a man. Barbie is independent and smart, yet fashionable and fun. Barbie is simply amazing.
Through the years….
♥ Happy Birthday ♥
Barbara Millicent Roberts!
