Astronaut Barbie encouraged girls everywhere that they could be anything.  This career doll was dressed ready for blast off and all the exciting missions that could be accomplished through role play.  Astronaut Barbie was designed to show how important it is to believe in yourself and to reach for the stars.

Barbie was not the first female astronaut - that was Russian cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova, in 1963.

Barbie and Ken celebrated the excitement of the space program in 1965.  Although Neil Armstrong did not take his famous first moon walk until 1969, 1965 saw many milestones in space exploration, including the first spacewalk and the first eight day mission. 

I remember watching all of the space program firsts on our black and white TV.  It was an exciting time in our history!
