I’m sure you have a Barbie or ten(!?) in your home. I know I do! Or you had a Barbie when you were a child.

Did you know that:

  • Barbie is the world’s most popular doll and a powerhouse brand among girls of all ages.
  • Barbie has had more than 150 careers to-date.
  • One Barbie doll is sold every 3 seconds somewhere in the world.
  • With 10+ million Facebook likes, Barbie has the largest Facebook fan page of any doll.


So it is fitting that the world’s most popular doll is about to celebrate a birthday!

How do you think Barbie is going to celebrate?

How To Throw A Barbie Birthday Party

I know how my daughters would throw a fabulous birthday party for Barbie…

The color scheme would be pink, pink, pink, and just for a touch of color…purple! The dress would be Barbie dress up dresses…the more frou-frou and frilly the better. I love seeing little girls dance around in princess gowns, don’t you? So sweet. You can never have too much pink tulle at a Barbie Birthday Party. The food would be delicate and oh so tasty…tiny sandwiches cut in to hearts and stars, lemonade…pink lemonade of course, and a delicious pink-frosted cake with lots and lots of pink candles for the birthday girl.

My daughters would greet their guests at the door and then the fun would begin. They would have me read a story about Barbie, decorate a princess crown with pearls, and play “Pin the Crown on Barbie.” At the end of the party, the guests would leave with a goodie bag filled with Barbie toys.

  3. Heather B says

    I had a ton of Barbies when I was little. My favorite one though was always one that had belonged to my mother she was from the early 60’s and had a screw in her stomach so you could make her hair shorter or longer.
