I was excited when the One2One Network offered to send me a 2013 Barbie Dreamhouse to review. But if I thought I was excited – my daughter had me beat! Below is my daughters reaction to finding the Barbie Dreamhouse sitting on our stoop! Her eyes were as big as saucers – and she immediately asked “is it for me?”
I remember playing with several incarnations of the Barbie Dreamhouse as a kid, but none came close to this one! This newly renovated Dreamhouse is three-stories, has 6 rooms, two elevators, and a few luxe details! For instance, pink stainless steel kitchen appliances and a walk-in closet with its own elevator – a first for the fashion icon!
I also really appreciate that this dollhouse comes with a lot of furniture and accessories. There is really nothing worse than assembling a dollhouse only to realize its empty – and that doesn’t happen here! Check out some of the furniture that comes in the rooms below…
My daughters favorite part of the dollhouse is all the lights you can activate, the sounds you can trigger – and the 2 elevators! A word about the elevators, they were the only part of the dollhouse I found a bit tricky to set up. However my husband had no problem figuring them out, so if you aren’t that handy like me, you may want to enlist the help of someone that is for that part of the assembly. Otherwise, I found putting the dollhouse together very simple and intuitive.
Over all I’ve found this dollhouse to have exceeded my expectations. There are so many new bells and whistles on this edition of Barbie’s Dreamhouse! I found myself feeling nostalgic as my daughter played with it, as well as impressed with all the creative thinking possibilities it creates. But it’s also a truly modern Barbie Dreamhouse – I ask you, did your childhood dollhouse include a kitchen recycling Bin?
I didn’t think so 😉
I’ve included a video of the dollhouse and its features below – for the visual learners out there! FYI -the Barbie Dreamhouse can be purchased at Walmart and other retailers nationwide. It has a manufacture suggested price of $184.99
