Barbie. Arguably the most famous and influential girl to exist before Kim Kardashian and K-Pop. 60 years on since her creation, Barbie has matured into a more inclusive and diverse character.
I was skeptical how Barbie could ever be relevant in the modern world, but Mattel’s signature doll originally developed to empower little girls has proven that it can keep up with times.
