47 Bodacious Barbie Dolls

From Fashion Designer Dolls to Classic Horror Film Dolls

— December 6, 2011 — Life-Stages
Barbie dolls have experience unprecedented success for over 50 years and in that time, the makers of Barbie dolls and countless other companies have created a veritable treasure trove of clever dolls. Designing everything from Barbie Burkas to television-inspired playthings, Barbie has more than shown her versatilty. With dolls to appeal to every girl regardless of her background or interests, the manufacturers of Barbie have found a way to tap into almost every market.

While converting a celebrity's likeness into a doll has been happening since the dawn of Hollywood, Barbie has branched out to include R&B artists and rappers alike. Creating ultra-luxurious versions of the legendary doll, Barbie manufacturers are becoming increasingly creative, cooking up designs that can run you thousands of dollars. The enduring popularity of the iconic doll speaks volumes about its adaptability to changing tastes and markets and presents a promising future for the company.

Satisfying consumers with discerning tastes and exhausted parents short on gift ideas, these creative dolls prove that 50 years later, Barbie is still on top.
