Book Review - Barbie Forever: Her Inspiration, History, and Legacy

Barbie Forever: Her Inspiration, History, and Legacy

About the Book

Barbie Forever: Her Inspiration, History, and Legacy presents a detailed, full-color portrait of this beloved doll through all-new interviews, original sketches, vintage photos, advertisements, a foldout timeline, and much more. Explore how the doll came to be, what it takes to create one of her many looks, and how her legacy continues to influence the world.

Since her debut in 1959, Barbie has been breaking boundaries and highlighting major moments in art, fashion, and culture. She has been an interpreter of taste and style in every historic period she has lived through and has reflected female empowerment through the more than 200 careers she has embodied. Today, an international icon, Barbie continues to spark imaginations and influence conversations around the world.

Barbie Forever is a vibrant celebration for the "Barbie Girl" in all of us.

My Take on the Book
This is an amazing book for anyone that is a fan of Barbie. This book takes a look back at the history of Barbie through the years. The book goes so in depth, sharing the rich history of these iconic dolls. The book is full of sketches, interviews, advertisements and more that will allow you to gain a much better understanding and appreciation into everything that was in play in the creation and the expansion of these dolls.

The book is definitely a coffee table book. We placed ours on our main coffee table and as people see it they truly star flipping through the book, learning a little bit more with each page that you turn. My oldest daughter is a huge Barbie fan, and as she read this book she kept telling us how amazing it was to learn so much more about Barbie than she knew before she read the book.

If you are a Barbie fan, this is a book you do not want to miss!
