Barbie's official birthday commemorates her first public appearance at the American International Toy Fair in New York in 1959. In her black and white striped one-piece, she stood 11 inches tall and was dressed for a pool party. Barbie was instantly recognizable as the only toy in the doll aisle that wasn't modelled after a baby or a small child—having an adult woman as a plaything for children was a novel concept. One thing she lacked at first? A navel button. That was added to her design in 2000, more than 40 years later.
