According to census info, Barbie's full name is Barbara Millicent Roberts. She has had 5 sisters, 43 pets and over 80 careers. You go, girl

In December 2005 Dr. Agnes Nairn at the University of Bath in England published research suggesting that girls often go through a stage where they hate their Barbie dolls and subject them to a range of punishments, including decapitation and placing the doll in a microwave oven. Dr. Nairn said: "It's as though disavowing Barbie is a rite of passage and a rejection of their past." (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbie#Controversies)
