Ah, memories of my youth! I had LOTS of Barbies. I would dress them up all fancy in classic ’80’s wear reminiscent of aerobic videos and Flashdance. I would get them ready for their date with Ken. We didn’t have Ken dolls. Barbies got all dressed up, shoved under the couch and retrieved an hour later.
A new generation
Jasmine is 7 now, and Barbies are a serious thing in this house. SERIOUS. Imagine my excitement when I heard that Barbie was going on a North American Tour with 2 stops in Canada! I don’t care that Toronto is 4+ hours away – If there’s only 2 Barbie events in Canada my daughter is sure as heck going to at least one of them!
So what is the #barbieismoving tour? It’s a Pinktastic, Glamtastic, Glittertastic FREE event for girls (and boys) of all ages. Playing dress-up and walking the runway? Grabbing that fab runway glam shot? Check! A Barbie movie in a larger-than-life movie theater? Check! Creating mood boards for Barbie’s new home and building a Mega Blocks Barbie room? Check, Check, Check, Check, Check!
So Friday I’m packing up the car and driving to Wild Water Kingdom with Jasmine. The best part? She doesn’t know yet! She has NO clue! I’m planning on filming her reaction as we drive into the lot of the event (don’t worry, there’s another driver lol). Come back next week to view the video and photos from the event.
