No Ordinary Barbie Doll

Full Size Barbie Dream House Opens To Tourists In Florida

In this high-tech age, it was only a matter of time before Barbie (the doll and her pint-sized apartment) became Barbie, The Dreamhouse Experience. And what an experience it is. A life-sized Barbie Dreamhouse, one of only two in the world, is just a stone's throw from the Sawgrass Grand Hotel and Suites. Using RFID technology bracelets and LED touch screens, Barbie lovers can personalize a house tour of this very pink 10,000-square-foot interactive playland that includes virtual elevators, a look inside Barbie's closet, kitchen and other living spaces. Naturally, there are 350+ Barbie dolls on display. Afterwards, return to the Sawgrass Grand's "real world" for a dip in the outdoor pool, a bite at the Grand Café or a work-out in the Fitness Center.

Address: 2606 Sawgrass Mills Circle
