As a youngster I had the durable Barbie townhouse that included an elevator that rode my dolls up and down the floors of their multiple shared home.
When my mother was a youngster she had the original Barbie dream house which wonderfully and temporarily came back on the market through Mattel.
The item was priced at 100.00 which in my opinion is a reasonable amount for a top quality 1962 reproduction that includes a version of the vintage Barbie doll.
My mother had shared with me years ago the details of the fun she had playing with the dream house that was made of thick strong cardboard and that folded into a suitcase for convenient storage.
Now I actually get to experience a piece of that nostalgia for a collector’s item as I anticipated purchasing me the classic “Barbie Dream House” from the online Mattel website after discovering its availability last year.
When I recently went to finally buy the product from Mattel the item no longer was available luckily I was able to order the 1962 Dream house from Toys R Us online website and it will be arriving to my home within a few days!
The product is also available at Wal-Mart online for $99.99
