National Barbie Day: Celebrate Barbie
Barbie I Can Be
She'll be 54 this year and looks as fresh as ever. What’s her secret? Likely the love she gets from fans of all ages who adore her timeless appeal, sweet disposition and irresistible collectability. —Shannon McCarthy

Barbie is hard at work in this line of career-oriented dolls, with gigs ranging from the serious (dentist, pet vet and president) to the somewhat silly (TV chef, Sea World trainer and rock star). Super-cute play accessories are included with each doll; we love the paleontologist’s dinosaur fossils and architect’s tiny dream house.

Trendanistas rejoice: S.I.S. dolls are rocking the fiercest fashions around. This line of African-American Barbies is decked out in gorgeous cutting-edge styles, whether it’s for work, play or spending quality time with family and friends. (And speaking of sisters, check out the darling doll sets that include little sis Courtney or Zahara).

We’re not saying you need to mark National Barbie Day with a full-on party, but we wouldn’t blame the superfans if they did. Themed partyware including bags, stickers, favors and table settings can obviously be used to great and giddy effect at all manner of little -- and OK, big -- girl’s galas.
Barbie 3-Story Dreamhouse

This hardly humble abode is the ultimate Barbie domicile. This crib is crazy big, with an elevator that travels three floors. It’s filled with more than 50 pieces of furniture and accessories for endless interior-decorating ideas. And, of course, the hot tub’s tiki lanterns light up.

Besides Barbie herself, this particular toy is likely the most memorable of our collective childhoods. What girl didn’t have one of these – or wish she did? They’re still around, and crafting their craniums is just as addictive as ever, whether their hairstylist and makeup artist will be your tyke or -- admit it -- you.

We can recall when designing dresses for Barbie meant wrapping her in Kleenex and adhesive tape -- or, if we were feeling especially inventive, an old cut-up sock and rubber bands crafted a new minidress. We’re feeling retroactive envy for this awesome DIY set and all its refill packs.
Elizabeth Taylor Barbies

Need something to get your mind off of the “Liz & Dick” blasphemy? Banish thoughts of Lindsay Lohan’s pathetic portrayal of Elizabeth Taylor with these gorgeous re-creations sculpted in the likeness of that star. “White Diamonds” is the latest Liz and pays tribute to the beauty, philanthropy and good scents of the legendary actress.
2012 Holiday Barbie

The latest in a long line of highly collectible holiday Barbies glows bright in a crimson brocade ball gown with a tulle underlayer and just the right touch of seasonal sparkle on her oversized waist bow. Silvery jewels and cascades of curls finish off the finery.

Sure, Halloween is over, but for some gals, “dress-up” knows no particular season. Do your best impression of a living doll with looks that run the Barbie gamut from classic costumes to mash-ups that bring in pop-culture fun: Thumbelina, ’50s Barbie, Super Hero Barbie, to name just a few.
Barbie bags and luggage
When your little gal is on the go, she’ll carry her stuff in style with a purse, lunch bag, backpack or even rolling luggage bearing the Barbie stamp. Toddlers get their own category of smaller-sized bags, and we also love retro-cool makeup cases for older girls bearing the iconic Barbie profile.
