Customer barbie pink dream townhouse  Reviews
The Perfect Barbie Dream House
The best deal for barbie pink dream townhouse is on Amazon, as shipping was free and no tax! It arrived super quick even with super saver shipping, and with nothing broken amazingly enough because it was simply shipped in the house’s actual box and not put inside another shipping box–so beware if you are buying this as a surprise gift maybe ship it to a friend’s house or work as your child will know what’s inside!

The lights and sound work great–although I had to put the batteries in and out twice to get the sounds to work, not sure why. Another customer was right, the elevator is the trickest part to put together–but I discovered that I was trying the to fit the top clip in the opposite way, oopsy. Once I fixed that, it only took me another minute to clip in. I was reading some reviews on another toy website, and people were having trouble getting the fireplace to work–I did too until I realized that it was shipped with the fireplace not completely snapped into the back wall. As soon as I pushed the fireplace back into its clips on the back wall, it worked great! I am so excited about this doll house. It will make a great display for my collector dolls. The only problem I see is how in the world I am going to move this house if I move someplace else as it’s extremely huge and doesn’t look like it can easily be taken apart. It might be a one time assembly, but not sure yet.

It really is the best barbie pink dream townhouse I have ever owned, and I owned plenty as a kid–wish they had this when I was growing up–although I don’t know if my parents would have sprung for it! However, I think it’s worth the high price tag if your little one is a huge Barbie fan! Get this house today while you can! I think that once it hits the store shelves this Christmas, it will go fast and be a hard item to find!! Must have toy for Barbie girls this Christmas for sure!

Worth the money
I purchased this to give to my daughter for her birthday. The house is huge. It was quite simple to assemble. The hardest part and what took the longest was the elevator. I had a hard time getting this little plastic piece to snap into the top to make the elevator go up and down. I think I worked on the elevator for at least a half hour. That was almost as long as it took me to assemble the rest of the house and apply the stickers. It is sturdy and will hold up to hours of playing I am sure. The lights over the hot tub came with batteries. I will still need to buy some AA to make the rest of the lights and sound work. This is quite similar to the Barbie dream house I remember a friend of mine having in the 70’s. I think it’s a good value for the money and quite fun. I wish I had gotten to play with this growing up. I look forward to playing with it and my daugther.

Great house, with modernized accessories
We bought this for our 7 year old daughter this summer and it is still working great. She loves this doll house! We also still have my original 1975 Barbie Townhouse (3 story), and it sits right next to this one. My daughter has been using the 1970’s house since she was 4. I’m not sure the new one would have stood up to the usage of a 4 year old. It requires gentler usage than the old style.

We actually like the way elevator on the old townhouse is moved better, but this one is okay. However, the placement of the elevator on the new one is in a better spot. It doesn’t break up the rooms like the old one did. There is a little stand in the elevator to help hold up the dolls, but it’s really not needed and makes it harder to use.

We have had some trouble with the lamp. It is easy to put in, and easy to knock off with a Barbie head. Not a big deal. Also, would have been nice if the roof of the top level was solid and not lattice type. She can’t set anything on top, it all falls through.

The shower was a big hit, not sure why. It just plays a short recording of Barbie singing in the shower. The kitchen chairs are a little flimsy, hard to make them stay upright when the dolls try to sit. But really, none of the Barbie furniture is that great.

The door is hard to use when the elevator is on the ground floor. Not a big deal, just move the elevator. Still, props for adding the door with doorbell. That was also a big hit. The actual kitchen accessories are great, instead of just background pictures.

Assembly was pretty simple – so were the instructions. So, if you need more than just little pictures you’re going to be in trouble. But really, you can almost figure it out just by looking at the picture on the box.

This house does feel flimsier than the old townhouse. I doubt it will last until my daughter has her own children like my house did. The plastic doesn’t seem like it will hold up that long, like the old particle board house. Still, it was a good buy and my daughter really loves it.
