Barbie 60th Anniversary Pop Up Experience

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!
