When is Barbie Day? This holiday is always celebrated on March 9
Attention ladies young and not so young. Today is Barbie Day. This March 9 holiday is a great day to celebrate this iconic doll. Wildly popular, playing with fashionable Barbie dolls has never been out of fashion. Most girls grew up with Barbie dolls, using their imagination and a wealth of outfits and accessories to envision her in all sorts of places and situations. Barbie dolls offer girls the opportunity to use their creativity to imagine themselves doing all the things their doll does.
Barbie dolls have been around for several decades. They have a broad and successful history. Ruth Handler, co-founder of Mattel, Inc. realized that girls needed something more than baby dolls and paper dolls. As a result, she designed the Barbie doll. Mattel, Inc. mass-produced it. On March 9, 1959, it was introduced at the American International Toy Fair in New York. It was an immediate hit with young girls.
Barbie’s full name is full name is Barbara Millicent Roberts. She was born and raised in (fictional) Willows, Wis. She went to High School there.
Barbie enjoyed the “Singles Scene” for two years. In 1961, the Ken doll arrived on the scene. Needless to say, Ken swept Barbie off her feet. The couple has enjoyed a long and fantastic romance, doing all sorts of things together. But to this day, he has yet to put a ring on her finger. However, if Ken were to ask, is Barbie ready for the ultimate commitment!? Only time will tell. Over the years, Mattel, Inc. has introduced an immense array of outfits, accessories, toys, and play sets to complement any and every girl’s imagination. Over the years a sizable number of Barbie’s friends and family have come on the scene thanks to Mattel.

History and Origin of Barbie Day
Our research did not find the creator or the origin of this day. It appears to have been created around 2018. The date was selected to commemorate the debut of Barbie dolls on the market on March 6, 1959.
The ever-popular Barbie doll fully deserves this special day. It is a little surprising that Barbie Day wasn’t created earlier than 2018.
The earliest reference to this special day is called it “Barbie Day.” Only recently, a few websites have begun to call it a “National” day. We found no presidential proclamation or act of Congress making this a true national day.
