Timeline of Dolls

1959: Barbie
The first adult doll focused on fashion was also one of the first toys to rely heavily on TV advertising.
1960: Chatty Cathy
This talking doll used a low-fidelity phonograph record to speak one of 11 phrases when the "chatty ring" on her back was pulled.
1986: American Girl
Blends historical-fiction storybooks with 18-inch character dolls and has grown to include boutiques, bistros, and live-theater shows.
2001: Bratz
Heavy makeup and provocative fashions, including fishnets and miniskirts, made the fashion doll contemporary -- and controversial.

The four high-school friends come decked out in fast fashion, with changeable wigs and bendable bodies.
