Ever wonder what it's like
to attend the NBDCC?
Here you can get the scoop on our Convention trips and upcoming Conventions
We will be updating on a daily basis during our stay!
For years, young people have embarked upon the “Grand Tour”, traveling the world, learning about themselves as well as new cultures and people. They experienced the sights, sounds and tastes of foreign lands, and they brought back exotic souvenirs from their travels as well as memories that lasted a lifetime. This year, the Barbie® doll will accompany over 800 conventioneers on just such an exclusive international adventure.
July 11 through July 14 in Orange County, CA! Come and be a part
of the Barbie experience!
Additional photos from fellow conventioneers! We didn't get a chance to make it down to the Raffle Room, Competition Room or Convention Dolls Through The Years so here are some photos from Linda B. and Michelle B. Thank you for your photos!!
