Barbie Dream House Experience
Barbie Dream House Experience was really neat! We took the kids to the real live Barbie Dream House in Sawgrass, Florida for our daughter’s 4th birthday. We got both of our girls the VIP package which included the full treatment. In that, it included; getting their makeup done, choice of Barbie outfits to wear for the fashion show, and a free picture at the end of the tour.
The tour was not what I expected. I thought it would be more like a Disney experience where the staff would play the part and for the price of the tickets (I believe for all 5 of us to go it was around $100) and the tour didn’t last very long. The installation itself was somewhat interactive but the price was way off for the experience.
When we went to the Barbie Dream House Experience it was in August of 2015. This was right before they were closing the doors for good. The souvenir stock was near empty and the pictures at the end were not working so we were unable to get either of our daughter’s professional pictures from the show. I was a little bummed about that because it included that perk with the VIP package. Luckily→ I am a picture-taking craZy mama:O) so I had plenty on my camera. 😉
These are some of the pictures from the inside of the 10,000 square foot life-size seven room Barbie dream house. It has a pink grand piano, a huge pink kitchen, a bathroom with a dolphin that pops out of the toilet, lots of glamors, and of course Barbie’s things everywhere.
Before the fashion show, they got to have their make up done. After their makeup was finished they got to go behind the stage and pick out adorable outfits and accessories and walk the catwalk out to the audience. Of course, I was there taking a gazillion pictures. 😀
Minus the lack of participation from the staff and expecting a little more out of the cost of admission. This fashion show was absolutely a hit. *It was my favorite part!* 🙂 The girls loved it and the experience for them was ever-lasting and I am so glad we got to go before the attraction closed down. I mean come on where else can you walk through a real-life Barbie house and imagine what it would be like to live like Barbie? 🙂
We didn’t realize we were making memories! We just knew we were having fun. ♥♥♥
