It was on this date in 1959, that the first Barbie doll was invented. Ruth Handler invented the doll and named it after her daughter. A bit later, Ken came along (named after her son). It was not initially received well by the powers that be, but little girls loved it.
Proverbs 31:30 ESV
Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
