old Barbie and
the new Barbie.
Ruth Handler watched her daughter Barbara play with little paper dolls, and she noticed her daughter loved giving the dolls adult roles
. At that time children dolls were mostly just dolls that were infants, so Ruth suggested an idea to her husband Elliot of creating a doll that is an adult-bodied doll. Her husband Elliot was a co-founder of the Mattel toy company. Elliot was very unenthusiastic about the idea and so was Mattel.
During a trip to Europe with her 2 children Barbara and Kenneth, Ruth noticed a doll in the window. The doll in the window was called Bild Lilli. Bild Lilli was a doll created based on a character in a european comic.
The Bild Lilli doll was exactly like what Ruth had in mind so she purchased 3 and took them to Mattel. When she was back in the US, she re-worked the design of the doll a bit and gave the doll the name Barbie after her daughter. The doll made its first debut in New York on March 9th 1959.
