More Barbie Birthday Celebrations on the Way!

(New York, March 6, 2009) — On Monday, March 9th, 50 years to the day she was first introduced at the New York Toy Fair in her now famous black-and-white striped bathing suit, Barbie will reveal an entirely new look with the unveiling of the 2009 Black-and-White Bathing suit doll.

Designed as a modern interpretation of the original 1959 doll, the new Bathing Suit Barbie doll will be sporting a brand new face sculpt. The absolute best part is that it will be sold at the original Barbie doll's 1959 price of $3 for one week (March 9-14 at participating retailers).

Additionally, Barbie will celebrate her 50th birthday with a major pink-carpet celebrity birthday bash at a REAL Barbie Malibu Dream House - a 3,500 square foot house in Malibu decorated by famed "Happy Chic" interior designer Jonathan Adler.

With features such as skirted, corseted, lace-up "dress" chairs, a chandelier made of Barbie hair, a closet filled with thousands of shoes, a sunburst mirror made from 65 Barbie dolls, and a garage that includes a real Barbie Volkswagen New Beetle car (all pink with a motorized, pop up vanity in the trunk), the house brings to life all the fantasy and fashion of Barbie in a real modern day Dream House.

Barbie doll's Malibu Dream House will also play host to several events, kicking off with an outrageously pink Barbie birthday party designed by event-planner-to-the-stars Colin Cowie. Additionally, the house features a Barbie museum which displays the original 1959 doll and several of the most famous dolls from throughout the years, various Barbie-size Dream Houses from throughout the decades and several noteworthy pieces of Barbie art.
