In case you didn't know, Barbie is going to sell her her iconic Malibu mansion for 25 million dollars with the assistance of her realtor, Josh Altman. You can actually view the listing on Trulia.
In honor of Barbie searching for a new home, at the Sawgrass Mills Mall in Southern Florida and in Berlin, Germany, 2 real, life-size Barbie houses will be constructed, as part of the Barbie Dreamhouse Experience that will begin in March 2013 and end in July 2013.
The houses will allow participants to get a realistic glimpse of Barbie's life. The dreamhouse will have 7 rooms, as well as working pink elevators, a Barbie walk-in dream closet and ring displays. Participants will wear special bracelets with RFID bracelets and touch screen technology that will enhance and customize their individual tours. Over 350 Barbie dolls will be on display. Participants can make their own digital cupcake in Barbie's kitchen, and partake in various photo opportunities.
The general admission price in the United States begins at $13.95 per person. Tickets can be purchased through Ticketmaster. However, more expensive, unique VIP experiences can be purchased separately where participants can gain entrance to various attractions that include the Barbie Fashion Runway and Rockstar Stage.
