(WOLO) Columbia,S.C., --

She may be another year older but she doesn't look it. Barbie turns 54 and over the years she has made several transformations since her first appearance back in March of 1959.

The doll has represented 40 nationalities, has had more than 130 careers and has worked with 75 different designers.

Barbie was created by Ruth Handler who named the doll after her daughter Barbara. The Ken doll introduced just 2 years later was named after Handlers' Son.
