Mattel to Launch Barbie The Dreamhouse Experience in Germany and South Florida
Mattel has announced Barbie The Dreamhouse Experience, which will let guests tour a life-size version of Barbie's mansion. Two Barbie houses will be unveiled in in South Florida at Sawgrass Mills and Berlin, Germany in March 2013.
The life-sized pink versions of Barbie's fictional Malibu home, which Barbie recently put on the market, will include pink elevators, a glitterizer, an "endless" closet, diamond ring display and LED touch screens. One of the tour experiences is virtually trying on clothes inside Barbie's house.
Mattel says 20 pounds of glitter and 100 gallons of pink paint were used to decorate the homes. At 25,000 square feet, the Berlin house is bigger than the 10,000 square foot South Florida Dreamhouse.
Tickets for the digitally enhanced Dreamhouse tour range in price from $14 to $29.99. You can find out more at barbiedreamhouse.com.
