as well as i think i know my child, the bean finds ways to surprise me all the time. i was super amused to learn that despite their distaste for barbie dolls throughout their childhood, the bean was really excited to see the barbie movie. even funnier to me was the fact that they owned far more pink clothing than i do, and pink is my favorite color!
while we were out in the burbank area on the day we went to that disneyland memorabilia exhibit, i decided to stop at the warner bros. studio store because i'd seen somewhere that they had a barbie pop-up shop. you don't have to buy a ticket for the tour to shop at the store because duh, they won't say no to taking your money. they even let me park in the structure for free while we shopped, and then we stepped into the elevator.
they made it really easy to find once we got out of the elevator and went through security.
it was fun to browse through all of the movie-themed merchandise, and of course we picked up a few things to take home.
we browsed inside the store too, but i managed to hold myself back from snagging anything from the extensive "friends" merchandise area.
