Pssst, guess what? The six story monolith to America’s favorite representation of unattainable beauty standards has now been fully realized! Today, the 3400-square-foot Barbie flagship shop on 555 Huai Hai Zhong Road opened its doors officially and let in the public.
The Barbie-adoring masses were greeted with a building that not only contains dolls and their clothes, but a fashion design center, a runway chock full of models dressed up in Barbie clothes, a Barbie day spa, and even a cafe.
Since it’s the opening weekend, there’s going to be all sorts of raffles and giveaways and Barbie-themed one time only packages, if you’re into that kind of stuff.
Any Shanghaiist readers want to check it out and report back? We would, but we’re afraid all that pink will cause our brains to go into convulsions.
