A Barbie Doll house

19 years ago....literally, my husband built this Barbie doll house for our daughter...
Doll houses were very popular then but they were little Victorian houses with tiny itty bitty pieces. My husband decided that since she loved Barbie's, a Barbie house would be a good thing. I can not tell you how many hours were spent in front of this playing with Barbie and all her "stuff". It has been residing with my neighbor across the street and her girls have now also outgrown it. Most all of the furniture Santa brought our daughter has survived all of these years and many hours of play. It now has a new home with my 3 nieces. I put it in the back of my suburban -a very difficult thing....the dimensions on this are 52" height, 50" width, and 28" deep.
I can only assume there will be many more hours of play and enjoyment for them!

I did something similar (not as nice) when my daughter was obviously too young th handle it correctly! Not much left after a couple of months!

What a fantastic house! My daughter would "kill" for it! Glad that it has been passed on into a good house and has not been wasted. All the best. Ciao. Antonella

That's great, something that kids can use their imaginations and spend many hours playing with. So few toys that I see today are like that.

I think I might need to make a wedding registry with favorite Aunt Neva for when the girls outgrow this... we might be married by then!

Honestly, I think it's great you took the dollhouse to your nieces but driving that many hours alone in the blithering cold (that I hate) was over the top. Your sister loves the SOUTH. Anywhere above New Orleans is too cold for me. Hope the girls love it like Shannon did and when (and if) Shannon ever gets married and has a girl I hope your husbands family will have the courtesy to send it back your way.
