Barbie is Moving Tour in Times Square

It's been a big day for Barbie fans. As part of their national tour to find Barbie a new home (yes, she's moved out of her Dreamhouse in Malibu!), Mattel set up a pop-up space in Times Square on Friday, July 12 from 11am to 3pm. City kids participated in fashion shows, designed Barbie outfits and even used Barbie-themed Mega Bloks to build a Dreamhouse room (check out our slide show above to see all of the action). While the Times Square party was a one-day only event, Barbie and her pals will be making a second stop in the tri-state area on Saturday, July 13 at a KMart in Farmingville, Long Island.
