I came across this on eBay the other day, and can't get over how freaking cute it is. This is the original Barbie Dream House - the first one they ever came out with. I don't know about you, but I would have died for one of those Barbie Townhouses in the early 70's - the one with the elevator? My parents got me the Barbie Country House (which is also on eBay) instead one year for Christmas, and I think I probably should have had therapy over the disappointment.
The whole thing is cardboard, so complete ones in good shape are pretty rare. Still, these only cost about $30.
I want my front door to look like that!
Doesn't this look like a Domino spread? *sniffle!* Check out the open top record player. We had one of those - and there are record albums with real titles, and books, and little cardboard pillows. All of the furniture is folded and put together.
here's a longer view - Love the pink interior of Barbie's closet - and that picture on the wall.
Here's a closer look. Cool huh?
Looking for more info, I ran across this great little essay on the subject of the early Dream House - check it out.
