She’s been around for so many decades but hasn’t aged a day. She’s had more than 180 different jobs; she's been president, she’s been to the moon, and she’s done all the things that women aspire to do. She has a massive closet and thousands of different outfits. Barbie is way more than just a 12-inch-long piece of plastic; she is way more than a toy.
