Interesting about Barbie Dolls.........
Barbie was created by Ruth Handler, the co-founder of Mattel, an American toy-company. Ruth Handler found her inspiration in a Germall doll, Bild Lilli. Barbie's full name is Barbara Millicent Roberts. Do you know that the doll was named after Ruth's daughter.
Ruth saw her daughter playing with dolls and pretending they are grown-ups. So, the businesswoman understood that such dolls were exactly what all the girls needed. Little girls adore beauty and fashion, no wonder Barbie became a total success!
Originally Barbie was presented as a 17-year-old teenager. The doll is celebrating her 60th birthday in 2019!
Barbie was joined by Ken in 1961. The first Barbie doll was sold for $3.00. The first Barbie commercial aired during the Mickey Mouse Club in 1959. Barbie doll’s signature color is Barbie Pink (PMS 219). Barbie stands 11.5 inches tall. The best-selling Barbie doll ever was 1992 Totally Hair™ Barbie, which featured floor-length hair.
This meal-in-pie-form provides plenty of protein, a creamy custard and a flaky crust. To save time, Pillsbury™ refrigerated pie crust makes an easy substitute for a from-scratch crust. This quiche recipe can be eaten hot from the oven or served in cold slices the next day.
