Barbie World in Shanghai

Ok…I only had a few Barbies growing up. But I find the whole doll thing fascinating. Especially Barbie. Apparently, “Every second, three people in the world buy a Barbie doll. Barbie has been a NASCAR driver, an astronaut and an inspiration to Andy Warhol, among many other things. The House of Barbie, which opened Friday, is a six-story, hot-pink shrine to the 11 1/2 inch doll, built around a wall of a thousand Barbies, each adorned in her own specially designed fuchsia dress.” (npr)
