A look back at 60 years of Barbie with release of new movie

Friday marks the release of one of the most anticipated movies of the year: "Barbie." And while many are deciding how to stagger their viewing experience with another film, we are taking a look back at the iconic doll’s history. 

The Show spoke with Robin Gerber, an author who has written multiple books on Barbie and the toy’s creator. Gerber looked back at 60 years of Barbie history and how her story relates to the Barbie many know and love today.
