It was the year Ruth Handler's creation, Barbie, made her first debut at New York's annual toy fair wearing her trademark black and white swimsuit.
Decades later she is still one of the most beloved toys for little girls everywhere.
My daughters included.
Imagine my surprise when I came across this gorgeous bedroom set from Pottery Barn Kids. Now... I am not one to do character rooms. Ever.
But this one is done right. Very classic. Very Lovely.
My favorite Barbie ever was the mother from The Heart Family and of course my Barbie and the Rockers lunch box was just awesome.
