Barbie Is Moving Tour – NYC {Sponsored}

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:

New York City
 Long Island

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.

  1. This is awesome…Sofia would love it. And it would bring back some memories for me, too 🙂 We're on Long Island this weekend for a wedding, I wish Barbie's tour coinsided with us being here!

    • Awee – too bad that you guys will miss it. It looks like they will have fun activities for the little ones. Most of the women that I speak with have memories of Barbie from their own childhood. Lucia is just starting to get into them (she received the Hawaiian “dolls of the world” for Christmas and was given one by the hospital when she had a short stay there a few months ago.

  2. What a fun surprise for your daughter. I have little doubt she'll have a great time. Barbie is awesome when you're a kid (and sometimes when you're not 😉 ).

    • Thanks so much for visiting :). Since I have to carve out “special alone time” with Lucia – I'm really looking forward to this. I think that she will really enjoy building things!

  3. I wish it was coming here!

  4. Lauren sure did have an impressive collection! A whole room dedicated to Barbie, if I recall! Have fun a the event. xoxo

  5. how awesome is this, we love Barbie

  6. I was never a huge fan of dolls, but Ms Middle L-O-V-E-S Barbie. She would have so much fun at this!

  7. I would love to see photos of this. I wish that I could take my DD.
