Washington, March 10: Did you know Barbie ran for president a total of six times in early 90s or that she has had at least 50 different hair colors in her lifetime?
On the occasion of Barbie's 55th birthday, the Huffington Post has compiled a list of things you probably didn't know about her.
Another astonishing fact is that a Barbie doll is purchased every three seconds in the world and her real name is Barbara Millicent Roberts, named after maker Ruth Handler's daughter.
Handler had said that her whole philosophy behind Barbie was to show the world that a woman has choices and she can go anywhere and be anything. (ANI)
