Barbie Turns 50; Help Her Show Her Age

On Our Soapbox Blog

Barbie turns 50 years old next week — but you can't tell.

She's had so many incarnations and makeovers — Disco Barbie, Malibu Barbie, Harley Davidson Barbie.

We invite you to send photos of your own modified, or simply cherished, Barbie dolls for our story next week. Barbie can be posed wherever you are: at the St. Louis Arch, skiing in Vail or hugging a plate of pot roast at the dinner table.

To find out how, head to our Soapbox blog.
