My girls like any Barbie-owners look up to Barbie as a perfect image, and unmatched values. Aside from playing with their dolls, they get to be familiarized with other Mattel dolls through movies. Seeing the dolls in action gave them a different perspective of the dolls. It gives them an idea of how a girl should be defined by being caring, sincere, respectful, courteous and how to be a true princess.
This time around they are not only limited to watching theses dolls on TV, they can now catch these dolls portrayed by humans. In collaboration with EMS Entertainment, Barbie will bring fans a new opportunity to sing and dance with the introduction of an all-new musical, Barbie™ LIVE! Barbie LIVE! is an engaging production featuring contemporary music with empowering lyrics, energetic choreography and a modern story line that will appeal to fans of all ages.
As an entertainment powerhouse, the Barbie® brand has been bringing fans of all ages engaging content for decades. Now, Barbie LIVE! debuted last September in Singapore and will travel Asia through 2014.
