As an ongoing celebration of Barbie’s 60th anniversary, the iconic toy brand is going on tour, and they've got an official Barbie's "Totally Throwback Tour" truck that's stocked with exclusive merch. It's basically a collection of late '80s and early '90s Barbie accessories you never knew you needed — until now. Everything from fanny packs and t-shirts to nail polish and totes are available on the Barbie truck for the most loyal fans.
The Barbie truck mades its debut at the Barbie Convention in Kansas City, Missouri, on July 31, 2019. The largest gathering of Barbie Doll collectors in the world, the Barbie Convention attracts fans of all ages, and they'll get to be first to get a glimpse of the Barbie truck and its retro-inspired, radical gear in person.
After the convention, the official launch event for the tour will happen at The Grove in Los Angeles, California this September, with the full tour scheduled for 2020. At this time there are Barbie truck tour dates scheduled for 2019 and 2020 (TBD whether or not it will repeat in 2021). In other words, don't despair if your city isn't in this first round, because Barbie just might make it to your part of the world a little later. Chances are, you and your kids will be able to experience the Barbie world like never before when the truck rolls into your town. That said, pics of the exclusive Barbie truck merchandise are already available, and everything is just as fun and bright as you'd expect.
If you're a fan of all things Barbie, here are some of the cutest themed pieces to be found only on the Barbie truck.
