Who created Barbie?

Barbie was created by Ruth Handler, co-founder of the Mattel toy company, in 1959. Ruth was inspired to create a doll that could inspire girls to imagine their future possibilities, after seeing her daughter Barbara play with paper dolls that had adult bodies. Barbie was named after Ruth's daughter and was first introduced at the American Toy Fair in New York City.
