"Doll Construction"

Barbie Patent Print - J. W. Ryan, July 24, 1959

Barbie, named after Barbara Handler daughter of creator Ruth Handler, was born on March 9, 1959.  She is a fashion doll produced by Mattel, Inc.  Ruth, a co-founder of Mattel, took note of her daughter’s love for paper dolls and dressing them, and observed that she often played out make believe story lines for the dolls as if they were adults.  As most dolls at this time were baby dolls or small children, Ruth felt there was a gap in the market for dolls that were adults.  So with the inspiration from a German doll named Bild Lilli, Barbie was born. 

Barbie is typically 11.5 inches tall and is set to a scale of 1/6.  She is made to look like an adult and has many sold-separately accessories such as clothing, shoes, homes, vehicles and friends and family members. 

Today, 60 years later, Barbie is considered to be a global icon.  She has the ability to inspire girls across the world to become anything they can dream to be.  Through the years she has had a significant impact on social values such as female independence and her reach has expanded to animated films, tv specials, music and video games. 

The patent was filed on July 24, 1959. Although Ruth Handler is credited with inventing Barbie, she redesigned the doll with help from engineer Jack Ryan who actually obtained the Patent. John W. "Jack" Ryan was an American designer noted for creating the popular image of the Barbie doll, Hot Wheels, Chatty Cathy.
