Tour Barbie’s Dreamhouse in Florida
Plenty of little girls have longer for Barbie’s Dreamhouse. The rooms, the accessories, the Ken doll. Now, in Sunrise, Florida girls big and small can live the dream at the Barbie Dreamhouse Experience at Sawgrass Mills mall, TODAY.com reports.
Clocking in at 10,000 square feet, the colossal candy pink building features things like a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and of course an enormous closet, all complete with life-sized furniture. The walls are lined with Barbies and there are interactive options that make the experience is even more real. Vice president for global marketing Lori Pantel told TODAY.com, “The Dreamhouse Experience marks the first time fans are able to experience Barbie’s dream life first hand.”
The Dreamhouse Experience is also available to girls of all ages in Berlin, Germany, but it was met with protests by those who felt the exhibit reinforced damaging gender roles. As for why the American installment is housed in Florida, Mattel representatives say it’s because Florida has a high concentration of Barbie collectors.
