In 1959, Mattel unveiled the very first fashion doll, Barbie. Barbie was one of the first toys to have a marketing strategy based extensively on television advertising, which has been copied widely by other toys. It is estimated that over a billion Barbie dolls have been sold worldwide in over 150 countries, with Mattel claiming that three Barbie dolls are sold every second. The most popular Barbie by far has been the “Golden Girl Betty White” model – Miami Retirement Home play set not included.
