Mattel’s infamous Barbie doll celebrated her 60th anniversary on March 9, 2019. The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures even threw her a birthday bash. And of course Mattel celebrated as well.
Back in December I discovered mine and my sister’s 40th anniversary Barbie’s, we were gifted by my grandmother 20 years ago now, in my parent’s attic. We weren’t allowed to open them at the time, but after double checking their value ($28 on ebay) I brought mine home, freed her from her constraints and swore to give her the photo shoot she deserves.
Her 60th birthday felt like the perfect time.
That said, I didn’t get to that photo shoot until late March, but at least she could breathe some fresh air until then :P
So here’s what I’ve come up with so far.
Happy Birthday Barbie 🎂🎈🎉. My dog chewed up my original Barbie years ago but we both turned Sixty this year. Yes 1959 means 60 Years of Awesomeness!
Thats so sad!! But it’s pretty awesome you two share a birth year 😊
I have also still got mine! Got her about 51 years ago!!
