Mattel is celebrating the 40th anniversary of the original Black Barbie.
Fun fact, the black doll wasn’t actually called Barbie until the 1980s even though the company began creating the dolls in 1960.
The 40th anniversary Barbie is wearing a red dress and rocking a ponytail, and gold hoop earrings while carrying a gold clutch.
If you didn’t know the original Black Barbie was designed by a Black woman named Kitty Black Perkins.
How many Barbie dolls did you own? Do you still have the dolls from your childhood?
