Barbie ‘Be Anything’ Tour Kicks Off In Northwest Arkansas

(KFSM) — Barbie is celebrating her 60th birthday with the "Be Anything" tour.

The company that manufactures Barbie says the doll inspires the limitless potential in every girl.

Barbie will be visiting almost three dozen Walmart stores around the country, including Northwest Arkansas.

The tour will kick off at the Walmart on Pleasant Crossing in Rogers Saturday (March 9).

Kelsea Ballerini and Arkansas native, Ruby Kate will be in both Rogers and Fayetteville, but officials say there will only be a limited number of wrist bands.

At each stop, fans will have a chance to take pictures inside a life-sized Barbie doll box, explore different careers in the "You Can Be Anything" dress-up zone and see the original Barbie dolls.  Kids can also enter for a chance to win up to $20,000 to make their dream come true.
