Barbie turns fifty
This has probably been around for a while, since Barbie turned fifty in 2009.
Hey, did you know her full name is "Barbara Millicent Roberts"? Holy cow.
I'm always fascinated by megahits like Barbie or Harry Potter. What exactly makes the difference which takes something from Successful to World Domination? Sure, good marketing and such things matter, but there must be something in the Common Public Mind... an archetype they just exactly fit, or something.
