Inside the Barbie exhibition at the Louvre

The Museum of Decorative Arts in the Louvre in Paris is hosting an exhibition dedicated to the American doll Barbie.

More than 700 dolls are on display dating from Barbie's first appearance in 1959.

The French curators believe Barbie is a serious subject because she says a lot about post-war western society.
