2 Cents: Happy Birthday, Barbie!

Happy Birthday, Barbie!

The iconic doll turned 60 on Saturday.

The Barbie doll debuted at the American International Toy Far in New York on March 9, 1959. She got a boyfriend, Ken, two years later.

Barbie has enjoyed more than 150 careers in her lifetime, everything from Astronaut to Presidential Candidate.

Barbie maker Matel to mark the milestone birthday transformed a suite at the Hilton Mexico City Santa fe into a life-sized Barbie heaven.

It omes with a pink pool cabana, a life-sized dream camper and a collection of rare Barbies. It’s available from March to December.

A simpler way to celebrate the birthday, listen and dance to the song “Barbie Girl” by the band Aqua.
