It was all about glamour, hot pink and the iconic Barbie doll.

As the movie Barbie is breaking records across the country, residents of Heritage Pointe of Ft. Wayne senior living community were excited to join in on the craze.

Earlier this month, the ladies (and some gentlemen) donned their favorite fashions and were pampered by Kathy Fean of Mary Kay. They then were able to strike a pose or two for photos in a life-sized Barbie doll box.

The residents and staff were treated to delectable treats, including angel food cake, strawberry coffee cake, pink lemonade, and more.

“Many of these residents fondly remember when the original Barbie doll was introduced in the 50s. It was fun celebrating something that is trending 60 years later,” said Christina Murphy, activity director at Heritage Pointe of Ft. Wayne.
