What an awesome idea for a cafe that can appeal to girls and women worldwide--a Barbie Cafe.
It opened in Taiwan last week and it is licensed by Mattel the founder of Barbie dolls (1959).
At 7,100 square feet and with $1.7 million dollars of investment, you get a lot of Barbie ambience--especially plenty of pink and frills (and calorie counting).
While some women may be turned off to the girlie stigma of a Barbie Cafe, there are probably many others who are enchanted with the dreamy image it bring from childhood and the ability to express a certain femininity, the Barbie way.
My prediction--in the near future, there is going to be a Ken Cafe opening up right across the street. ;-)
