How old is Barbie? I know the toy first appeared at the Toy Fair in New York in 1959, but how old is the character
Barbie meant to be?

Is she a teenager? She doesn't have any parents. Is she older? We know she doesn't have a husband. She's got a little "sister," but we all know she's meant to act as a mom when she's got the baby. The Mattel site offers no answers. I never thought about her age as a kid, but I'm beginning to think that she is ageless, that whatever "age" she is doesn't actually exist in real life...
