It is my absolute honor to formally wish you a happy National Barbie Day!. Barbie turns 62 years old this month, just in time for Women’s History Month, and my goodness, did Barbie ever make women’s history! From setting world records with the “Midnight Red from 1965” Barbie selling for $17,000 at a London Christie’s auction in 2006, to the way Barbie has been bringing excitement to kids and stretching their imaginations since 1959, the dolls’ impact on the world has certainly been felt.
