Before the Barbie doll even existed there was Lilli, a German doll that was originally marketed as a sexy novelty item for men.

And speaking of Barbie, Mattel is about to roll out a new line of Barbies that are different from the big bust, tiny waist blonde that we’ve all gotten used to over the years.
