Barbie Family House

I bought this house over 2 months ago at an estate sale. 
Same one from where I bought the Sunshine family.

Plastic roof is brittle. Furniture is made from some type of thin plastic. 
Not sure if some pieces of furniture belong with the house.

  1. I have bought this house and the furniture at a flea market a couple of years ago. The furniture looks right but then I'm no expert.

    Nice find :O)

  2. Thanks, I believe the one piece (brown round object in the bedroom) belongs to the first Barbie house that was made out of heavy cardboard.
    Last year, I saw someone selling one on E-Bay that they had redone. It was really nice. I am not that talented to try something like that.

  3. See now you are just showing off! Super cute house. I'm actually not a collector of plastic houses, but I enjoy seeing them.

  4. I got that house in 1974 or 75 for Christmas. It was the same layout, only with more modern furniture. Lovely, sweet memories from this one!

  5. @Vanessa, Thanks,I have to show off my house since I am not as talented as someone I know who makes beautiful displays. These will have to do for now.

    @Pixie, Yes things like this bring back such great memories from years gone by.

  6. Beautiful house! And how well-kept! Nice to see someone with such a wonder;)

  7. I have 1 of those yellow chairs. I was wondering what era theey were from. Now I know!! Great find!

  8. First of all sorry if this post more than once...I'm having trouble. In the book Barbie Doll Structures and Furniture it shows your house and a picture of the accessories. It states the accessories to include: 1 orange twin bed, 2 yellow and black chairs, 1 yellow table with black top with red flower, 1 black sofa with blue seat. Great Find!

  9. Thanks Shelly for the info. It seems like the pieces are all there with I believe two extra pieces.
