The Barbie doll was branded by an American industry called Mattel, and it was created by an American woman named Ruth Handler. The design of the Barbie doll was inspired by a German doll named Bild Lilli. Also, the first Barbie doll was manufactured in Japan by Japanese homeworkers. The Barbie Doll even inspired a Danish song "Barbie Girl." The raw materials that create the Barbie doll are from Japan and Taiwan. Most importantly, the Barbie doll is sold worldwide. Also, multiple cultural Barbie dolls have been designed such as a Hispanic Barbie doll. Some of Barbie's dresses are made in China and there are multiple museums dedicated to Barbie in the U.S.A., along with one in Taiwan.
