Barbie is Moving From Malibu Tour Event Chicago

Disclosure: This Barbie is Moving post is sponsored by One2One Network and Mattel. All opinions stated are 100% my own.

As a child I grew up loving my Barbie’s. Some of my favorite memories are playing with my Barbie Airplane and a Barbie Pool Set. Not to mention all the cool accessories, clothes, boots, shoes, handbags, etc. Given this, I was so excited when I found out my first-born was going to be a girl. I could not wait until she was at the age to play Barbies. However, to my surprise, Barbie was not her thing. But then along came my twins, Anna and Ethan. Anna does enjoy Barbies, and can still get her brother to play with her! She also is pretty good at getting Megan to play Barbies every now and then too.

  1. How cool is that! Wish I lived along one of these stops so I could take Zoe to see Barbie. She has a couple of my Barbie dolls and loves them and always asks us to play Barbies with her.

    I don’t think I ever knew that Barbie actually LIVES in Malibu. Lucky girl!
