Little known Barbie fact


Recommended Posts

My sister in law worked for Mattel at the time my oldest daughter was into Barbie. She was a safety and quality control engineer. She had to travel to their manufacturing sites around the world. 
interesting Barbie fact - the faces are still hand-painted. The most important job on face painting? The sparkle in her eye! It takes 7 years of experience before you are allowed to attempt the sparkle. They are painted in Taiwan as it costs less. However they are paid well by Taiwan standards. The ladies who paint the sparkle live like queens.
