FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA.—Days of Malibu living are long gone for Barbie. The iconic doll has moved to Florida and is inviting people to step into her life-size dream house, the first one now open worldwide.

Barbie The Dreamhouse Experience, a 10,000-square-foot building with an “endless closet,” elevators, a kitchen, bedroom, and everything pink, opened last week at Sawgrass Mills mall in Sunrise, Fla.

The life-size house is already drawing squeals of joy from little girls who’ve toured Barbie’s happy world, and enthusiasm from lifelong fans like Lynn Mulvaney-Japes, 51.

“It’s a big deal,” said Mulvaney-Japes, a member of a Barbie collector club. “In fact, we all want to go work there.”

The Lauderhill, Fla., resident said she has more than 3,000 Barbie dolls in a room in her house devoted exclusively to the fashionista and multi-career role model. Mulvaney-Japes planned to visit Barbie’s own house this week, along with other members of the Fashion Queen Doll Club.
