The US company Matell was founded in 1945 by Harold Matson and the couple Ruth and Elliott Handler. At first the production comprised mainly accessories for dolls.
In 1959 the first Matell Barbie doll, named after Barbara, the Handlers’ daughter, was introduced at the American Toy Fair in New York.
The doll, inspired by mannequins, owes much of her success to her comprehensive wardrobe.
The latter was inspired by the newest fashion trends and always mirrored the spirit of each epoch. Over the year the doll’s appearance changed and the accessories became more and more elaborate. 500
