Barbie themed pop-up truck coming to West County Center on Saturday


DES PERES, Mo. – “Come on Barbie, let’s go party…” Barbie fans, mark your calendars, a hot pink Barbie pop-up truck is on its way to St. Louis for one day only, and ’90s babies better be ready for it. 

The Barbie Truck Totally Throwback Tour is heading to West County Center on Saturday, February 27 from 10 a.m. -7 p.m. to celebrate the brand’s 60-year heritage.

“This is a very unique traveling pop-up experience that speaks to Barbie fans who are older and younger,” said Barbie Truck team member Hannie Peng.

Barbie fanatics can swing by and grab exclusive Barbie-themed apparel and accessories like denim jackets, hats, and t-shirts.

Peng said the hot pink Barbie van will feature ’90s fashion staples such as vinyl iridescent fanny packs and boombox-shaped totes, embroidered patch sets, and a new collectible Barbie Polaroid camera.

“We have a wide variety of items that can all be purchased using a debit card or credit,” said Peng.

Due to the current pandemic, Peng said all guests are encouraged to, stay home if sick with a cough or fever, wear a face mask, and maintain a distance of 6 feet from other customers and staff.

“The good thing is that our truck is outside, this is a safe and fun way for everyone to have an outing with friends and family, ” Peng said.

The Barbie Truck Tour kicked off in Los Angeles in the Fall of 2019 and will continue to visit cities across the United States. The next stop on the tour is Oklahoma City, OK.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
