Here it is! I can’t tell you how long I’ve wanted one of these, it’s been years. An original Barbie Dream house from 1962 not a reproduction but the original! I’m so excited to have one finally and wanted to share some pictures with you.
It’s in superb condition complete with all the original furniture. The handle and snaps are intact which is rare and the cardboard structure has survived extremely well. It’s a fantastic example and shows just how well it was made.
I purchased it from a seller in the states and had it shipped over to the UK, a fair price and fair postage. What stung me were the import duties grr, that’s always a downer when trying to obtain certain items but as this item never comes up in the UK I bit the bullet and went for it. I’m so pleased I did.
Barbie collector have just produced a reproduction Dream house new for 2017, It’s identical in every way and even comes with a reproduction ponytail Barbie, very nice but as I always say original is best and I always prefer the non reproduction items because I love the history as in who played with it etc, etc.
I hope to create some exciting scenes in the near future especially for the holiday’s, I’m on the hunt for a miniature Christmas tree!
Until next time x
