Barbie is one babe who has it all — a great figure, designer clothes, a dream house, good friends and the envy coupled with love of so many girls out there. What the pretty doll of a bomshell hasn’t been able to achieve is the love of the masculine gender except when the guys were to compare their girlfriends with her (and that is a different issue altogether). So French designer Chloe Ruchon set about to change things a little bit with the creation of Barbiefoot.
Traditionally called, ‘Babyfoot’ in FRnahce, this is a pink table that combines the dream doll with table football. Doing so wasn’t easy but the partnership with Mattel brands was a great support for the designer. Then again, how can just about anything related to Barbie can go wrong?
The recreational game table was launched at the DMY youngsters exhibition at DMY Berlin Design Festival 09. We think it is a great business move that will go down well with both the sexes.
