Dear readers,

Today is Barbie Day! Barbie debuted on March 9, 1959, at the American International Toy Fair in New York. Since then, she has become a cultural icon for children and toy collectors alike. While there have been some controversies over the years, no one can deny the impact she and her friends have had over the decades, and so March 9th is considered by some to be Barbie day!

We’ve rounded up ten stories from our archives about those who love Barbie, those who loathe her, and those who can use her as a tool for some pretty creative parenting!
