Sixty-five years ago today, Barbie, the famed fashion doll from Mattel, was introduced at the New York International Toy Fair.  Generations of girls have grown up with the definitive fashion doll, and with the huge success of last year’s Barbie movie, she’s a bigger pop culture icon than ever.

So to observe the anniversary of her beginnings, we bring you two video of her history.  Above you will see The HILARIOUS History of Barbie, by FunkyFrogBait. This is a more comprehensive history than some of the longer, dryer videos about the history of Barbie.

Below we have another concise history, courtesy of the respected scholar, Trixie Mattel.

We salute Barbie, without whom we never would have had GI Joe, Bratz Dolls, Monster High, Malibu Stacy, The Spice Girls, “outfits sold separately,” and many other pop culture mainstays.
