Our kid blogger, Mariama visited the sold out Barbie Pop Up on March 9th at the Skylight Mercer.
Guests were treated to an immersive, hands-on space designed specifically for kids and Barbie fans! There was lots of opportunities for fashionable photos.
“Equal parts inspiring tribute and art installation, take a journey through the past, present and future of Barbie breaking plastic ceilings.”
Taking a “walk down memory lane’, attendees were delighted to see how Barbie evolved from her launch in 1959 to today’s diverse image of a modern woman. The most exciting exhibit was the pink ball pit!
On March 8th, International Women’s Day, 20 role models from 18 countries were honored by Mattel and had Barbie dolls created after them. Yara Shahidi, Naomi Osaka, Ibtihaj Muhammad, and Frida Kahlo were the “Sheroes” who now have dolls created in their likeness!
