Classic, I never thought of this as the logo but it is!

Like MacDo’s logo, money and repetitive marketing campaign made this the classic it is. Without all those investment, would this logo be as recognizable?

I dare to ask!

@DChuck

Without all those investment? a bland, generic with awkward proportion logotype. Like the M tv logo fehfehfeh
Walt Disney’s script is a classic in my opinion

Very Barbie-ish. I actually think it’s pretty good, probably because I’m so familiar with the logo and associate it to Mattel.

Simple Playful and girly, perfect to represent the iconic doll

I think DChuck asked an excellent question. I don’t think branding was the major investment then that it is now. The investment was the advertising which generated the buzz of girls who needed Barbie more than they needed candy. As a result a icon was born and probably influenced 100’s of feminine logos for generations.

I think more went into this then people are giving it credit for.
Pink: Tells you its for girls.
Script: Tells you its classy and personal, things young girls would look for.
Think Lines: Gives it that child-like appearance.

We also have to take into consideration the conditions this logo needs to be printed on i.e. a tiny plastic bum.

Good logo for children and their (grand) parents.
Font and colour are in balance
