Updated on September 1, 2017

Did you know Mattel wanted to sell more Barbie clothing than dolls? That's why her proportions were so wild—the clothes make her look human!


So you think you know your Barbies? Take these three fun quizzes about the lovely lady's history, homes, and hair... and let's see how well you do.

Why not share them with your Barbie-loving friends, and see who gets a higher score?

Barbie History Quiz

view quiz statistics

History of Barbie


This quiz is chock full of all types of questions about our gorgeous friend Barbie. From fashions to types of dolls to controversial topics, this quiz covers it all.

You are a true master if you can get 100% on this quiz -- some of the questions are pretty tricky.

For example, did you know that there was a Russell Stover Candies Barbie issued in 1996? Yup, it's true. She came in a big basket with six bags of real candy. Buyers could choose in a shorts outfit or a minidress (both pink and white, of course). Dolls and candy? Now that's right up my alley.

Good luck!

Barbie Hair Quiz

Barbie Hair


So how did you do on the history quiz? Ready for another?

I don't want to make you nervous, but this one isn't any easier. Be sure to read each question in full. You don't want to get thrown by something tricky.

The quiz focuses on hair colors, hair accessories, hair lengths, and hair styles. I hope you don't find it too hairy!

Best of luck to you!

Barbie Homes Quiz

Barbie Homes


If you're looking for a quiz about Barbie's homes and home accessories, you've come to right place. Settle down and take this quiz. Show us what you know!

If you've done well on the history and hair quizzes, you may not do as well on this one. Barbie's homes are numerous, and you may be surprised to find out some things. For example, were you aware that Barbie had a Dance Cafe with a piano and snack bar? It was issued in 1991.

Have fun!

      Hi, Sarah! Heck no, never give up the Fan Club Membership! :-D

      Thank you so much for the terrific comment and the follow. My mom made great clothes for the Barbies me and my sister had and they still survive with the dolls. But we never had pleather pants!

      Babs its one of my favorite topics and she always makes me smile too. Thanks again! :-)

      Hey, olive! :-)

      I'm so glad the quizzes brought back memories... I was reminiscing a while too after I created them. Thanks the vote, share, and sweet comment!

      I totally bombed on the quizzes. Do I have to give up my Barbie Fan Club membership? LOL. Loved this Hub! I had tons of Barbie clothes and accessories but I never had the dream pool or the car or the camper. I had to go to my best friend's house to play with those things. On the flip side though, my Mom was really great at sewing little original Barbie outfits, so my dolls always had trendy clothes that my friends' never had. My Mom even made a pair of "pleather" pants for my Barbies. Thnx for the smiles today! - Sarah

      Wow! This is an enjoyable hub! I answered all 3 quizzes. I did much better in the Barbie home quiz than other 2 quizzes. In spite of my wrong answers, I learnt a lot from this smartly-conducted quizzes. As a result, I had more fun knowledge of Barbie! I will retry these quizzes quite soon!

      Thanks for SHARING. Useful, Awesome & Interesting. Voted up & Socially Shared.
