The Barbie Dreamhouse has always been the pinnacle of dollhouses for little girls. Every girl (sometimes boy!) wanted her Barbies and friends to live the lavish lifestyle (Barbie Dreamhouse), or maybe live at the beach (Barbie Malibu Beach House) or in the city (in the Barbie Townhouse). The possibilities were endless, and these days even more Barbie house dreams are within reach.
