Barbie Truck Headed to Tysons Corner Center for Vintage Merchandise Tour

A Barbie truck is crossing the country on a tour that will stop at Tysons Corner Center late next month to sell limited edition retro Barbie material.

The truck is scheduled to stop at Tysons Corner Center (1961 Chain Bridge Road) on Saturday, Oct. 24, from 10 a.m.-7 p.m.

“Barbie is hitting the road with the Barbie Truck Totally Throwback Tour, celebrating over 60-years of Barbie’s iconic heritage and the fans who love her,” toy company Mattel said on Facebook. “Come check out limited edition retro-inspired Barbie merch only available at the truck. We encourage everyone to practice social distancing!”

The merchandise tour is a celebration of the brand’s 60th birthday, which was celebrated last year.

The company outlined on social media a series of sanitation procedures to help keep the transactions safe, including wiping down counters, points of service and payment readers with disinfectant every thirty minutes. Staff will also wear gloves and masks inside the trucks with an acrylic barrier separating them from guests.

The website indicates the van will have everything from Barbie stickers and accessories to vintage jean jackets with Barbie branding on them.
