Barbie’s 50th…The Celebration Continues

Is this Barbie 50th anniversary stuff going overboard?

I’ll leave that for you to decide.

But Barbie lovers would be interested in knowing that the doll celebrated her 50th today by unveiling a new face and throwing a pink-carpet birthday bash at her real Malibu Dream House.

Apparently, the new Bathing Suit Barbie doll is a modernized version of the original 1959 doll and pays homage to Barbie doll’s original 1959 price by offering the new doll for $3 during Barbie® doll’s birthday week.

That’s March 9-14 at participating retailers nationwide.
