NEW BARBIE DREAM HOUSE

When they opened a life-sized Barbie house in Berlin demonstrators outnumbered the ‘Barbets’. The Malibu ‘Dreamhouse’ became a nightmare as protestors burned Barbie dolls and had to be ejected by security guards.

The life sized doll house is designed to ‘immerse’ visitors in the ‘pink world’ of Barbie (the most successful toy doll in the world. The experience includes walk in wardrobes and digital ‘try on mirrors. This is the second such attraction opened by Mattel. The other is in Florida.

Michael Koschitzki, editor at Socialist Alternative, told the press,‘The attraction presents the idea that there were only two career options for women - model or pop star... The Barbie Dreamhouse is the expression of a conventional role model that isn't OK.'

Regardless of the protests, The Barbie Dreamhouse, will be open to visitors in the German capital until August, after which it will tour Europe.

Tressy was the best. I accidentally ate one when I was a kid and ever since have had to have my hair cut every two weeks.
