Barbie's Doll house commercials from the 1960s to the 1980s

Barbie's first Dream House - A wish com true for both of you ... Oh, how I wanted this when I was a kid. I have it now.

There are several other Barbie commercials in this video. I couldn't find a video that had only the first dream house in it. Just hit the stop button if you don't want to see them all.
Barbie's Real Estate empire expanded a few years later. I finally own these ones too.
The Little Theatre and the costumes were pretty much the ultimate items to have in 1964. You knew a kid had well off parents if she had these (at least that's how I felt at the time) Fast forward into the future (the past now) and Barbie's house has grown much more elaborate:
I love all the propaganda in this next commercial. Mom and Grandma are so into the house that I am not sure if the little girl will even get near it. I call it propaganda, but I could be either one of them.

  1. Thanks for posting these! I had the town house (80's version) and it was the envy of all my friends and cousins because it had an elevator. Most of them had the A-frame dream house. When I got older I took it apart and made it into a ranch house. Then later I used the floors in a 1 inch scale dollhouse my aunt helped me build.

    And the mom and grandma look so happy with that dream house. :)
