In addition, on the occasion of its 60th anniversary, she will share with visitors a little of her history through images and pieces of collection.

The room, which will be available until March 2020, took approximately 20 weeks from its conceptualization, design and production. “The presence of Barbie® can be felt in every corner. The elements of decoration, bedding, toys, dolls and activities are intended to continue inspiring girls to be what they want to be and to fulfill their greatest desires,” shared Vinod Agarwal during the opening event.
