Little girls' favourite Barbie doll is all set to come to life in a US stage musical, makers Mattel have announced.

Barbie Live in Fairytopia, starring 24-year-old actress Erin Coors, will open in Ohio on 1 April and tour 80 US cities by 2008.

Mattel director of entertainment Barry Waldo said the show would personalise the experience of Barbie collecting.

The stage show comes amid falling sales for Barbie, which was replaced by Bratz as the UK's top selling fashion doll.

"It's not just putting on a character, but remembering everything she was to me when I was little," Coors was quoted by The BBC, as saying.

"Live entertainment is going to personalise the experience in a whole new way," Waldo said.
