I’m a Barbie girl in a Barbie world…May 27, 2011
Growing up in the 60’s, I was all about Barbie and Ken. I had all the clothes, the cars, the bags – but best of all…the Barbie house. Life was good.
Now Mattel and an Architectural group (http://t.co/SQC7oIa) have combined to start a contest to design a Barbie house for “today’s” Barbie and Ken. What would it include?
If you go by what current buyers are looking at in Central Florida the top five things would be:
- Home office
- Place for aging parents
- Large open kitchen
- Smaller yard
- One story design
Buyers just don’t seem to be too concerned anymore about giant homes – they want them smaller, more eco-friendly and easier to manage. In other words, I see a world that is going for a simpler life. I wonder if Barbie is on board with that?
