Visit the Barbie Dolls Exhibition to arrive on the Las Vegas Strip
Hello, dolls. And welcome to the Strip.
“Barbie: A Cultural Icon” will launch in October at The Shops at Crystals, 3720 Las Vegas Blvd. South, according to a press release.
This will be the first Barbie doll show on tour in the United States. The promoters say the event will honor more than 60 years of fashion and inspiration.
The exhibit will feature the very first Barbie doll produced in 1959 and guide guests through the decades, paying homage to Barbie and the world around her, according to the release. It will also feature over 150 vintage dolls, artifacts and life-size fashion pieces that will come to life in tastefully personalized displays.
Video material and interviews with Barbie designers will expand the narrative.
Barbie made the news in the Las Vegas Valley this summer. Dr Audrey Sue Cruz – local physician, wellness advocate and lifestyle blogger – was one of six new Barbie dolls added to the Mattel line dedicated to “modern heroes of the pandemic”.
And a Barbie Pop-Up Truck stopped over in Summerlin and Henderson last summer.
