Barbie games for free to play now: Barbie @60

While most know Barbie as a global phenomenon and a multi-million dollar business for the Mattel toy company, a lesser known fact is that the iconic doll, which turned 60 this year, was the brainchild of Ruth Marianna Mosko, the youngest of ten siblings born in 1916 in Denver, Colorado into a family of Polish-Jewish immigrants. At 19, she moved to Los Angeles and married her high school sweetheart, Elliot Handler, an artistic young man. Not only did they jointly set up the Mattel company during World War II, but the visionary Ruth also designed Barbie to be a role model for her daughter and other young girls. Spurring both criticism and copycats since making her debut in 1959, Barbie has remained in the spotlight through seasons of change and popularity, and easily remains one of the most recognisable brand names in the world, writes Kaushik Bhowmik.
