Through computer animation, 芭比娃娃 has become the 星, 星级 of several feature films, including “Barbie in the Nutcracker,” “Barbie as Rapunzel,” “Barbie of 天鹅 Lake” and “Barbie as the Princess and the Pauper.” And she has staked her claim on the Web with the 流行的 Make Up 芭比娃娃 Game, which allows girls to alter her hair, makeup and 总体, 整体 look.
In the late 1990s, computer technology boomed, and in 1996, Mattel launched www.barbie.com, the official 芭比娃娃 website. In 1998, “My Design” was introduced on the site, allowing girls and collectors to decide what...
芭比娃娃 has younger sisters (Skipper, Stacie, Kelly, Krissy, the short-lived twins, Tutti and Todd), cousins (Francie and Jazzie), 老友记 (Midge, Miko, Whitney, Nikki, Devon, Kira, to name a few) and of course, the steadfast Ken. But her parents played a minimal — and totally off-stage — role; no parent 玩偶 were ever produced. She is an agent on her own behalf, a singular sensation, living her own life, forging her own destiny. In all the scenarios in which she has played, the one role 芭比娃娃 never took on was that of wife, even though Mattel has made numerous bridal ensembles for her....
Part of Barbie’s power is the kind of projection she invites. “I designed 芭比娃娃 with a blank face so that the child could project her own dreams of the future onto Barbie,” Handler 说 in her book, “Dream Doll.” “I never wanted to play up the glamorous life of Barbie. I wanted the owner to create a personality for the doll.” Even the talking Barbies that appeared on the market never enjoyed the ascendancy that the mute, yet eloquent 玩偶 did.
芭比娃娃 was both a child of her time and completely cutting edge. As the historian and 作者 Stephanie Coontz has written,...
The 芭比娃娃 clan began its life as white and remained so until 1967, when “Colored Francie” made her debut. But this Francie doll was produced using the existing head molds for the white Francie, and, other than her dark skin, lacked any other distinguishing African features. The first African American doll in the 芭比娃娃 圈, 圈子 is usually regarded as Christie, who appeared in 1968. It wasn’t until 1980 that actual black and Hispanic 芭比娃娃 玩偶 hit the market. Yet despite Mattel’s attempt to take a 更多 racially sensitive stance, Ann Ducille, professor of American and African-American...
There has always been a 芭比娃娃 backlash; mothers who refused to buy her, women who actively bashed her. Journalist-turned-novelist Anna Quindlen fantasized about driving a “silver lamé stake” through Barbie’s plastic heart; Pulitzer-prize winning novelist Carol Shields 说 Barbie’s expression, with “its dumb shine of self-absorption, its trippingly tartish look of one who is out for all she can get,” is “eerily disturbing.”
芭比娃娃 has been held responsible for eating disorders and charged with offering girls a wholly unrealistic body image. A typical 芭比娃娃 doll...
Eight months after Barbie’s debut at the Toy Fair, Mrs. Handler was, according to the Los Angeles Times, driving a 粉, 粉色 Thunderbird and running a half-million-dollar business.
芭比娃娃 sales continued strong throughout the early 1960s; her clothing, her accoutrements, and her Dream House adding to skyrocketing success. In 1961, Mattel brought out the ultimate 芭比娃娃 accessory: Ken, Barbie’s square-jawed, crew-cut sporting steady beau named for Mrs. Handler’s son.
In the late 1960s, with the women’s liberation movement, 芭比娃娃 seemed out of step with the new...
芭比娃娃 was born during the golden age of American post-World War II prosperity with its lushly saturated Technicolor movies, tidy new suburbs and cars as large as beached whales.
In the early 1950s, Mrs. Handler got the idea of creating an adult doll after observing her daughter’s fascination with adult paper dolls, whose clothing she was able to change.
Mrs. Handler envisioned a doll onto which girls could project their desire to act like, and indeed become, grown women. But the designers at Mattel initially balked, saying the level of detail that she wanted would...
Barbie, the single most successful doll ever produced, was the invention of Ruth Handler, one of the founders of the fledgling toy and novelty company, Mattel.
The petite plastic doll, named after her daughter, Barbara, made its debut on March 9, 1959 at the American International Toy Fair in New York City. For the occasion, 芭比娃娃 wore a black and white striped bathing suit, shoes and sunglasses. Her price was $3, a modest sum even then. A handful of outfits was displayed alongside her, costing between $1 and $3.
