BERLIN (AP) -- It probably wasn't the reception Barbie was hoping for at the start of her European tour.
Feminist protesters burned a doll on a cross and left-wing demonstrators shouted "pink stinks" at the Berlin opening of a life-sized Barbie house Thursday.
They far outnumbered Barbie fans who came to see the Mattel toy's fictional Malibu home.
Security guards swiftly ejected the protesters from the site, which is tucked away behind socialist high rises, railroad tracks and a shopping center near the city's gritty Alexanderplatz.
The "Barbie Dreamhouse" in Berlin is the second such theme house after a similar one opened recently in Florida.
It will remain in the German capital until August before going on tour around Europe
