Barbara Millicent Roberts

Barbie (Barbara Millicent Roberts) is the main fictional character in Mattel's popular line of Barbie fashion dolls.

Barbara Millicent Roberts, a student of Willows High School in Willows, Wisconsin and her permanent beau Ken, are the supreme images in Westerners' minds of what a doll is, and what a toy is.

Throughout the years, her family and friends expanded. Additions to the family tree included Skipper[?] (debut 1964), Tutti[?], Stacie[?] (1992), and Kelly[?] (1995). Barbie has dated Ken since 1961, had broken ties with her best friend Midge, until recently when Midge and Alan[?] married.

Barbie has been used in an effort to promote gender equality[?], showing that women can work at anything. Career woman Barbie has taken up many occupations over the years, including:

Barbie has thirty-eight recorded pets, including cats and dogs, horses, a panda, a lion cub, and a zebra. Barbie has used her driver's license to the fullest, with pink convertables, trailers and more. She also has a pilot's license[?], and operates commercial airliners, while not serving as a stewardess.
