World’s First Official Barbie Cafe Dolls up Taiwan
February 1st, 2013
Well, Mattel finally went out and did it. Open a Barbie-themed cafe, I mean. It’s located in Taiwan and is, as expected, fitted with furniture in various shades of pink that’ll drive any man crazy and any Barbie-loving girl equally nuts.
The Barbie Cafe serves up dainty little crustless finger sandwiches with tiny pink flags stuck into each one of them. The waiters wear pink aprons, while waitresses flit about in pink tutus like the ones that the Barbie dolls on the table have on.
So why Taiwan? A rep from Mattel explained that theme restaurants have been very popular and successful in the state.
Just looking at everything – from the sticky sweet food and decor to the people and ambiance – is enough to make me go into a diabetic coma. To push that point further, here’s a video featuring the Barbie Cafe in all its pink splendor. Boys, avert your eyes.
