Barbie getting Bijou, couldn’t love it more

Of course Polly Pocket will be in mind for those of a certain age, the brand did have a pop at revitalising itself a couple of years back but hey, Barbie, once more is flavour of the month, year, well decade! So Mattel have done the wisest thing, shrink her and her compadres and dwellings and create an entire new way to get involved with the pink princess – Barbie Land.

There’s a fair bit to talk about so we’ve posted detail on the next page. In a nutshell, Mini BarbieLand includes fan-favourite Barbie lines, including Barbie Fashionistas, Barbie Colour Reveal, Barbie Cutie Reveal and Barbie Pop Reveal, integrating the unboxing surprise and delight in a mini version for the ultimate collectability.

Mini BarbieLand dolls integrate with the small-scale replica of the iconic Barbie DreamHouse, supplied in a box filled with a surprise mini Barbie doll, mini pet and pet accessory. Each house has a working elevator, slide and pool. Kids can take Mini BarbieLand dolls along for a ride with the Mini Barbie DreamCamper, Dreamplane, Dreamboat, Convertible Car and Jeep.

Nicolas Houssin, VP of Marketing EMEA, said: “We are thrilled to introduce Barbie’s latest innovation at Nuremberg Toy Fair, bringing Barbie’s system of play in a new size to even more fans with a new miniature scale that welcomes fans to collect and play in a whole new way”.
