Climbing The Barbie Ladder

FACT: Every second, two Barbie dolls are purchased somewhere in the world.

Question: If all of the Barbies sold in one year were stacked each one on top of another, how long would it take for the "Barbie ladder" to reach the moon?

Note: The Barbie pictured is the first produced in 1959. A Barbie is usually 11.5 inches tall.
