Toronto Hilton Offers Barbie and Hot Wheels-Themed Hotel Rooms
Hilton Toronto is offering themed hotel rooms this summer for kids (and probably some unfortunate adults) that are really into Barbie or Hot Wheels.
Hilton Buenos Aires has been doing these themed rooms for boys and girls since 2004, but now the wait is over for Toronto hotel-stayers who can shell out $229 a night for the same Mattel marketing experience. These rooms will have adjoining suites for parents that don't want to sleep in an all-pink Barbie room or a car-shaped bed.
Overpriced room service will be provided on Barbie or Hot Wheels dinnerware and lucky kiddies will leave with fun gift bags filled with Barbie or Hot Wheels paraphernalia. Rooms include a bunch of Barbie or Hot Wheel activities and DVDs, along with a closet full of Barbie costumes and car themed bath products.
While it's not really my thing (I have my own car-shaped bed, thanks), Hilton and Mattel are reportedly giving some of the money made from these rooms to the SickKids Foundation, so that's good. And if this is your kind of thing, but staying at the Hilton seems a bit stupid when you live here, don't worry - The Brick will sell the same Mattel-inspired furniture beginning this month.
