For Barbie’s 60th birthday in 2019, Mattel celebrated by sending out a Barbie Totally Throwback Tour Truck across the U.S. to give fans the opportunity to shop some exclusive Barbie-themed merch. It was such a hit that the Barbie Truck Tour is back in 2022. However, this time around, Barbie’s got Malibu on her mind. Inspired by the ever-popular Malibu Barbie, Barbie’s truck is filled with retro-inspired merch that you’ll definitely want to add to your collection.
The Barbie Truck Tour, which began in April, will be traveling coast to coast and making stops in major cities like Boston, Chicago, and Houston along the way. The tour’s final stop will be in October, so the Barbie Truck Tour will be traveling all summer long and through the fall. Similar to the first Barbie tour, fans at each of the stops will have the chance to purchase some Barbie merch that includes cute apparel and throwback accessories. There’s even a burlap tote bag, water bottle, and bucket hat that’ll have you as prepared for the summer season as Malibu Barbie herself. These nostalgic and adorable items are only available from the truck tour, so you don’t want to miss your chance to buy some limited edition Barbie merch.
