Mattel reports that more than one billion Barbie dolls (including Ken dolls and Skipper dolls) have been sold across the world to date.
Barbie gained a younger sister, Skipper, in 1964.
In 1695 he had only advanced to the post of "skipper" in his own navy and of "bombardier" in his own army.
In American balladry he was pre-eminent; such pieces as " The Swan Song of Parson Avery," " Marguerite," " Barclay of Ury," " Skipper Ireson's Ride," " In the ` Old South,' " hold their place in literature.
Having recovered his freedom by an exchange of prisoners, he worked for several years as a merchant skipper with success.
