Local shoppers looking to put the finishing touches on their Barbie Halloween costumes are in luck.
The Barbie truck is rolling back into Tysons Corner Center later this month, this time featuring a “Dreamhouse Living” theme to celebrate 60 years since the doll moved into her first residence, according to Mattel lore.
Unfortunately for all the Kens out there, the Barbie Dreamhouse truck won’t have a competing Mojo Dojo Casa House truck in tow, but the mobile shop will have plenty of exclusive clothes, mugs and other merchandise to sell when it stops at the mall’s Plaza on Oct. 28.
Inspired by “a day in [the] life of Barbie in her Dreamhouse,” per a press release, offerings will include:
- Graphic T-shirt
- Denim jacket
- Baseball cap
- Throw blanket
- Embroidered patch set
- Pouch set
- Glass tumbler
- Glass mug
- Accessories cup
- Thermal bottle
Prices range from $12 to $75, with purchases of $40 or more netting a free gift. The truck will be parked near Shake Shack from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
This will be the Barbie truck’s third time stopping in Tysons, following visits by the original “Totally Throwback” tour truck in 2020 and the Barbie Malibu truck in April 2022.
“There has always been such an amazing response from Barbie fans in the D.C. area,” Barbie Truck spokesperson Hannie Peng said.
The Dreamhouse truck launched this July at the 2023 National Barbie Doll Collectors Convention in Orlando, Florida, which unfolded over four days just before Greta Gerwig’s “Barbie” premiered. While the truck isn’t directly tied into that $1-billion-grossing movie, it has received such a positive response that a second truck was added for the West Coast, according to Peng.
After visiting Tysons, the East Coast truck will advance to Richmond on Nov. 4 and Virginia Beach on Nov. 11. The two trucks will continue touring the U.S. into 2024.
