Ever since Barbie® arrived on the fashion doll scene in 1959, she has been one of the world’s best-selling toys! This Barbie® was made in 1962.©2012 The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, Inc.

I can't recall a birthday party or Christmas when I didn't receive at least one, if not several, Barbie® dolls and Barbie accessories. I had a whole fleet of vehicles - two corvettes, an RV, a scooter, and (my favorite) a horse truck and trailer. I also had a horse named Dallas that rode in the trailer. Dallas is over 30 years old now and currently lives in my daughter's toy box, along with Prancer (Barbie's Dream Horse, circa 1983). -Angie, Indianapolis
