“Welcome Home Barbie” – One Of A Kind Spectacular !

I am Wrapping up My Barbie Birthday Celebration with this spectacular One Of A Kind set !

“Welcome Home Barbie”  is My personal take on the New Barbie Dream House originally issued in 1965.  While that set also included  Bedroom and Patio areas, this set concentrates on the Living Room and Kitchen of the home, as these are my favorite spaces to showcase how your dolls might live!

“Welcome Home Barbie”  features 3 sectional walls  that are all independent of one another (not attached) and are free-standing. This feature allows you to move walls at will and use them in different combinations.  AND because each section (Window wall, Fireplace wall and Kitchen wall) are not attached, they can each be used as separate backdrops allowing multiple looks and set ups for display as well as photo opportunities !

You will notice the Welcome Home style and touch on this set, but I did keep the original flavor of the New Barbie Dream House so that it is reminiscent of the original, yet totally one of a kind and life-like !

Take a look at all “Welcome Home Barbie” has to offer !

The Kitchen Wall does double duty as it is two-sided.  On one side, the brick walled Kitchen with counter top and cabinets (cabinets do no open).  On the other, built-in nook to showcase treasures and “pass through” with shutters.   Nook AND  pass through feature built-in lighting !

The Window Wall  lets in plenty of natural light and features beautiful drapery with built-in valance. Yes – You CAN close the drapes for privacy!

The Fireplace Wall  is covered in painted field stone  - totally RETRO and the fireplace lights !

  1. Extra kudos for always using the Siamese as your ‘model’ kitty, Maryann. As you probably recall, they were the height of kitty fashion back then. Remember ‘That Darn Cat’? In short, they were Purrrfect. Bad pun totally intentional. :D
    Hearty congrats to the lucky winner of this amazing OOAK! You have my admiration and envy. :)
