FAO Schwarz has the perfect gift for the ultimate Barbie lover just in time for the holidays.
The Bonzini Babyfoot Barbie Foosball Table is the most extravagant item from Mattel’s limited-edition, privately commisioned, “The Plastic Collection” of carefully curated Barbie items from around the world.
Only an exclusive few of Barbie’s biggest fans now have the opportunity to purchase the limited edition foosball table, as only eight tables of this type will be commissioned.
From the imagination of young french designer Chloé Ruchon, a student at Decorative Arts School in Strausburg, comes the ultra-pink Barbie foosball table. It was created in partnership with Mattel and the Bonzini group, the worldwide leader of foosball tables.
In place of the standard aluminum figurines of soccer (or “football” in Europe) players are leggy line-ups of Barbie dolls, ready for action. Both a work of art, as well as a super-glam spin on a game-room classic, the Barbie Foosball table has garnered lots of attention since its creation. After its introduction at DMY, the International Design Festival in Berlin, the Barbie foosball table started quite a buzz on the web. One was prominently featured in Paris’ top boutique and others have been traveling the world exhibited in art galleries, prestigious stores and on television. Only 8 Barbie foosball Tables of this type, numbered and intended for sale will be made.
This item, which retails for $25,000, is available for special order by contacting the FAO Schwarz
