I love the feel and look of the website and also the images of the Barbies that are used in the different games on the site. Can’t wait to see what other surprises mattel has for us this year.
For me it’s already the 9th so I’m refreshing www.barbiewow.com too see what’s it all about. This site is part of the “See What Happens When You Play with Barbie(R)” campaign and here’s what Mattel had to say about this:
Debuting at the famed Lincoln Center, Barbie(R) will unveil a larger-than-life installation of her ultimate Dream Closet complete with 24-foot tall, jewel encrusted doors leading into a two-story, 9,000 square-foot set with multiple dressing vignettes. The New York Fashion Week installation will transport fashionistas and fans in the area inside Barbie’s fantastical wardrobe complete with augmented reality technology “mirrors” that allow users to literally doll themselves up in Barbie’s most iconic, playful and glamorous outfits from the past five decades. Live models also will “dress the set” adorned in high-luxe looks on loan from the Albright Fashion Library, an exclusive couture library that includes styles from Oscar de la Renta, Alexander McQueen, Gucci, Moschino, Chloe, and Burberry.
BarbieWow.com: A Global Fashion Destination for Fans of All Ages

The pink portal will transport fans in more than 30 countries inside Barbie’s Dream Closet with unique brand integrations and new media channels of “sharing and trending” that will turn raiding Barbie’s wardrobe into real-time, globally-shared experiences.
Once inside her Dream Closet, girls of all ages can explore a world of endless fashion, accessories and imaginative play, through interactive activities such as a design studio to dress up Barbie(R) and augmented-reality “mirrors” to dress up themselves using the doll’s favorite fashions.
