Barbies Million Dollar-Real Estate Empire is by Virginia Gil of DoYouRemember, the place where memories live. I am captivated by DoYouRemember’s sentimental articles and astonished how they come up with their yesteryear ideas that leads the reader down a wistful road to memories they may not recall otherwise.
Today I am featuring DoYouRemember, Virginia Gil’s article highlighting Barbie’s Dreamhouse Real Estate changes over the years. Enjoy the trip down memory lane.
Barbies humble beginnings in Willows, Wisconsin did little to discourage her real estate ambitions. In 1962, just four years after launching, she moved into her first Dreamhouse replete with wood paneling and mod décor. Since then, Barbies relocated just about every decade trading her Malibu Dreamhouse for a luxe Townhouse, a magical mansion and finally a revamped Dreamhouse, which she put on the market this year for $25 million. Can’t keep up with Barbie’s changing zip codes and dwellings? Here’s a rundown of her (many!) digs:
1962 Barbies® Dream House
1974 Barbies® Townhouse
1979 Barbie® Dream House
1983 Barbie® Townhouse
1990 Barbie® Magical Mansion™
1998 Barbie® Deluxe Dreamhouse
2012 Barbie® Dreamhouse®
As a real estate mogul, Barbie’s made some major investments over the years. Take a by-the-numbers look at the hottest home on the market.
