Happy happy birthday, Barbie!

Come on, let's go party!


But at Barbie's age, her response might be something like:

"Ah, no, you go and have fun with your friends. I'm going home. My all night party days are behind me."

Or would she?

Barbie is 60 years old as of March 8th, 2019.

Will she have another rager like she did at EPCOT in 1994?

Because what COULD top that?

According to Buzzfeed:

"The photo series is part of a campaign by Lumen to push back against ageism in the toy industry, and to celebrate the beauty of growing older."

Co-founder and CMO of Lumen, Charly Lester, said:

"Many women say that in their fifties and sixties they've never felt more empowered in their own skin – and this should be reflected by influential icons like Barbie."

It's a stunning way to pay tribute to Barbie and Ken, who have been a part of childhood and life pretty much since our parents or grandparents were kids.

People across the globe are tweeting their own tributes to Barbie.







Happy 60th birthday, Barbie!

And Ken, you make 58 look like the new 27.
