We all remember Barbie of course. She is one of the most iconic toys in the world, and her presence makes any toy store feel familiar.
The thing about Barbie is that because she's been around since 1959, there is a lot of history built up around the character. She's got a bunch of story lines, a big family, and a lot of friends that people have completely forgotten about. Even if you aren't currently collecting 5,000 Barbies, chances are you probably owned some when you were a kid.
You might think you remember all of Barbies siblings, but chances are you'll forget at least two! Let's see how many of these Barbie characters you actually remember.
Do you know Barbie's real name?
Even though we call her 'Barbie,' she does actually have a full name. Her name is actually Barbara Millicent Roberts. Her original packaging called her a "Teenage Fashion Model" but obviously over the years she has had a lot of jobs other than modeling.
Barbie's Dad: George Roberts
While her dad never had a doll made of him, he was mentioned in a Barbie book. He was described an engineer but he never really got developed into a whole character.
Barbie's Mom: Margaret Rawlins Roberts
Like Barbie's dad, Margaret didn't ever get a doll version, but her story was that she was a stay-at-home mom, taking care of Barbie and all her siblings.
But now we'll get into the real dolls...
Skipper was the first sibling to be introduced to the family in 1964. She is Barbie's 14-year-old sister and came in a few varieties the would try out different hair colors. Recently, Skipper has been styled with brown hair and a purple streak. Fun fact, this original doll is selling for $80!
Tutti and Todd Roberts
In 1965, Barbie's twin siblings were brought into the world and they had their own special look. They came with a new body type that was bendier than the other dolls. They were only manufactured until 1971, and they seem to always just pretend like they didn't exist.
Anastasia 'Stacie' Roberts
Stacie's history gets a little bit fuzzy because first of all, people often thought she was Tutti, but she had been discontinued. Then, they put "twin brother of Stacie" on Todd's packaging, so I guess they just wanted to pretend like Tutti never happened.
