Barbie an American Icon, based on a German toy (Bild Lilli) and manufactured in Japan. The original 1959 Barbies were brunette as well as blonde, and had an even slimmer waist than the modern doll. Interestingly, the original Barbies were always glancing to the side, but from 1971 she looks straight ahead.
