Massachusetts is home to a huge garden of Barbie dolls
You never know what unique attractions you will come across in Bay State. Here in the Berkshires we recently talked about the Hoosac Tunnel with portals in North Adams and Florida, Houghton Mansion in North Adams and Coca-Cola Ledge (Witt’s Ledge).
If you are taking a trip to the south coast of Massachusetts in Plymouth County, one attraction you might come across is an interesting garden located in Mattapoisett. There is a house on the corner of North and Church streets, which contains an outdoor garden full of Barbie dolls. As you can imagine, the garden (located behind an iron gate) is filled with Barbie dolls from all eras. There is a stone sign which is titled Barbie’s garden. Judging by the name, you’d think the garden is all about Barbie dolls, but it’s not. The Barbie Garden also features plastic dinosaurs, plastic lizards, plastic snakes, aliens, characters from The Simpsons, and even 80s pro wrestling figures.
Some people may say or think this garden is downright odd, which is understandable, but at first glance, it’s actually pretty cool. It instantly gives you that feeling of nostalgia. Doesn’t that make you smile? The next time you plan to sell or throw away your old Barbie dolls or any other doll / action figure, consider making a garden out of it. You might just be the talk of the town maybe to the point where you have to keep them behind an iron gate. Discover some photos and a video of the Jardin de Barbie. In short, pleasure!
