Most Realistic Barbie Dolls Houses with Operating Elevators

Updated on January 9, 2019

Despite many decades after getting my first doll, one of those lifesize ones, I still love dolls & can’t resist eyeing dolls in a toy dept.

Having lots of Barbie dolls without a house for them to live in is never enough for the die-hard Barbie fan. She is always going to want a house specifically made, to house her most treasured collection.

Barbie dolls houses come in various sizes. From the small Barbie Glam Getaway House to the Barbie 3-Storey Townhouse that stands over 3 feet tall, whatever your room space allows, all Barbie doll houses will fit in.

They are one of the most popular dolls houses ever produced. From the first Barbie homes which were built in 1960 and made from cardboard (it folds up neatly into a carrying case with a handle) to the newer modern designs with working elevators, flushing toilets, and other real household sights and sounds, Barbie dollhouses provides the perfect setting for interactive explorations and role-playing adventures.

And because Barbies, like real humans, have so many stories, careers, and personifications, these can only be appreciated in a home where she can be a role model for your child, no matter what her interests may be.

Most Realistic Barbie Dolls House

The three-storey townhouse has been described as the most realistic of all the houses and is a beautiful sight to behold. It can be aptly described as a deluxe home, going by the type, style, and quality of its plush interior furniture and furnishings, and its lavishly furnished spaces, intricate details, and professionally styled interior décor. A 30" x 7" x 32" size dollhouse filled with absolute undiluted fun.

Many adults whose children are users have attested to the fact that this design is the best Barbie house ever made. Mothers who owned Barbie doll houses when they were young children themselves, and remain diehard fans, will love these modern-day dollhouse designs too, and will probably join in the fun of playing house.

Why Girls Love to Be at Home with Barbie

Undoubtedly, many of today’s children are more interested in playing electronic games, the 21st-century ‘toys’, no thanks to the advancement of technology. However, there are some who still love playing real-life games with similar games and toys their parents and grandparents grew up with.

The most interesting thing about Barbie doll games is that it opens a child’s imagination. Dreaming up a story is easy for every young girl and the same applies once she steps into her Barbie dolls’ house. As she presses the doorbell and walks in through the entrance door, the interactions begin. She is welcomed in by her dolls all placed in her own desired positions, acting out her own script of their story.

Playing house, she can take her friends on a tour of the house. They will absolutely love going upstairs in the operating elevator. After the tour, they may all decide to sit, relax in the beautiful living room, or watch while a Barbie grills some food in the adjoining kitchen that is fully stocked with what's to be found in her own mother's real-life kitchen. After the cooking, they can sit and chat over a meal on the dining table,

After dinner, everyone can lounge around, sip some tea, watch a movie, and chat some more and when the guests depart, Barbie and other members of the dolls’ house-hold can curl up on the lovely plush chairs in front of the crackling fireplace reading.

The 3-storey Barbie dolls houses require a lot of space for effective display, so it is good to know that it might be too big if you have only small spaces for its display. And because it is a large ‘toy’ that has so many small parts, it is best for older kids who will love and appreciate its intricacies.

      Your creativity must have been evident from a young age F4L. I too remember when i was young, to create a house for an imaginary family, we'd drape huge sheets over chairs (used as posts) and crawl in and out with our dolls and other playthings, playing pretend doll house.

      Nowadays being able to have a barbie doll house makes playing house more real and enchanting at the same time.

      Thanks for your visit and comments F4L,

      GodBless.

      When I was little, my sister and I owned about 30 different barbies. We never got around to buying any barbie houses, though I wanted one desperatly ( im quite sure i spelt that wrong...) So my sister and I made an alternative one. We had all the furniture so we just made our HUGE house on the floor, we were happy with it! But yes, I agree, I think that barbie houses are every little girls' dream, they are filled with pink and they always make your barbie doll look rich! lol
