Ruth, who ran Mattel with her husband, understood that children’s imaginations had to be engaged in order for them to grow up. She conducted some study and determined that there was a demand for a doll similar to Barbie. Before Barbies invention, Mattel had made many toys; nevertheless, the men in the staff had their doubts when Ruth requested they produce a little toy for youngsters.
Ruth was convinced Barbie would be a success, so she put her own money into the project and started to make prototypes. The Barbie doll was introduced at the American Toy Fair in New York in 1959. Barbie was a big hit! She was an instant success and children loved her. Ruth Handler named Barbie after her daughter Barbara.
