“Barbie”, the movie that sparked a global shortage of fluorescent pink paint, has brought Barbieland back to the center of attention. But the pink-obsessed doll conquered more than a screen. From Crocs shoes to Impala skates, from Champagne glasses to Uno cards, Barbie-themed everything has taken over the world, proving that there’s no such thing as “too much pink”. You could even book a stay at Barbie’s life-size toy mansion Malibu DreamHouse, for two one-night stays on Airbnb. We bet you were unlucky to hit that jackpot, so naturally, now you wonder: Is there a Barbie hotel?
