Happy Birthday Barbie!

In celebration of its 50th anniversary, Mattel has opened up a flagship Barbie store in Shanghai. And for those of you who don't know yet, I will be traveling to Shanghai this month so I'll definitely have to stop by! It is a little girl's dream... six stories of fun, complete with a spa and cafe. Check out some of these pictures from their website!

The 'Dream Lobby'

The Spa & Nail Bar for girls all ages

Larger than life Barbies!

The Barbie Design Center

Girls get to design their very own custom made Barbie. How fun does that sound! What girl didn't dream of having her perfect little Barbie? I'm not sure if this is something even I could pass up!

They have a runway where girls get to dress up and get made up so they can strut their stuff and strike a pose.

And at the very top is the Barbie Cafe where you can enjoy afternoon tea or even a Barbie-tini!

Makes me wish they had something like this when I was a kid. It's like a LegoLand or Baseball Hall of Fame for girls. But even at my age, who says I can't relive a little childhood fun. I'll have to see it in person and let you know if it's as amazing as it looks. :P
