I have vivid memories of going to my sweet friend Lauren’s house and spending hours playing with her impressive Barbie collection. Barbie has come a long way since my 80’s childhood (my fav was Peaches and Cream), and she is now a Doctor, the President, a Veterinarian, a Pilot, among many other things. It seems fitting that she has officially left her home in Malibu, California (after 41 years of residency!) to search for a new place to call home. New York City is an obvious choice for her, and I’ll be surprising my Lucia with an exciting Barbie event in Times Square next week (anyone can join us – the event is open to all!)
The Barbie Is Moving Mobile Tour is currently traveling across North America in search of Barbie’s new digs. Her tour will be stopping to scope out New York City (on Friday, July 12th) and Long Island (on Saturday, July 13th) with exciting events at the below locations:
Best of all the Barbie is Moving Mobile Tour is FREE and families are invited to come and experience fun activities and enter mega giveaways including:
- A Barbie Mega blocks station for little ones to create their architectural fantasies.
- An interactive fashion runway show (with fun photo opps).
- A station for budding fashion designers, to create and customize their own Barbie garment to take home.
- A chance to win the ultimate bedroom makeover by a Mattel designer.
- A chance to win the new 2013 Barbie Dream-house.
