So you may have heard that an American icon recently turned 50. That’s right, Barbie has hit the half-century mark and looks as good as she has since her introduction in 1959. While the doll has been subject to its share of controversy over the years, no one can deny the massive impact Barbie has had on pop culture in this country. AARP has decided to present Barbie with an honorary membership to commemorate her 50th birthday.
