I attended an event here recently where I ran across an invitation to Barbie’s Birthday Party hosted by Charlotte Seen in Charlotte, NC. There will be a champagne toast, birthday cake, memorabilia, and more! It made me think of how much Barbie has changed since I was a little girl. I remember when I was seven and got my first summertime Barbie doll, Ken doll, and Barbie pool.
It seemed silly at first to think about how much attention we give to a toy. However, Barbie has become more than a toy. She is a fashion icon, best friend, and Matel announced this year she will be an Entrepreneur. What was your favorite Barbie growing up? How you would you like to see Barbie debut next? Do you think Barbie has become more realistic and representative of women today?
After searching on Matel’s website which I had not been on for years you can find Barbie in every category fit for ages 3-12. The price for Barbie ranges from under $24.99 to $75.00+.

I plan to attend her Birthday party on March 7 here in Charlotte and cannot wait to see all of the memorabilia.
