It is so interesting to read about the fictional life created for Barbie and her friends and family.Barbie's parents are George and Margaret Roberts. George served as a pilot in the Navy.
The military series of Barbie dolls, Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps went through approvals by the Pentagon to ensure the most realistic costumes.
