Barbie® Is Moving: The Dreamhouse® Is Up for Sale!

Did you see the listing on Trulia? “Creatively scaled 8,500 sq. ft., 3-story, 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom mansion in Malibu, with a truly unobstructed view of the ocean – after all, it only has three walls!” It’s the Barbie Dreamhouse, and Barbie has put it on the market for just $25 million.

You read it right, Barbie has decided it’s time for a change. She’s selling her iconic Malibu home and starting the process of packing up the house she’s owned for 41 years.

The Dreamhouse has gone through major renovations during those four decades, always reflecting the home design of the times.(See the Dreamhouse Through the Years.) Now, with the help of realtor Josh Altman, Barbie will sell the pink palace.

Altman, known internationally for his work with high-end properties, is a highly respected and widely recognized real estate agent. He specializes in working with celebrities and entertainers, and calls this a “dream listing.”

While Altman works to secure a buyer, Barbie plans to embark on a world tour and enlist the aid of Los Angeles-based textile designer and design influencer Lulu Dekwiatkowski, New York/Palm Beach based designer Celerie Kemble, and West Coast fashion and home product designer Trina Turk to provide her with advice and inspiration for finding her new Dreamhouse.

Meanwhile, inspired by the hit video series Barbie Life in the Dreamhouse, Barbie fans of all ages can immerse themselves in the interactive “Barbie The Dreamhouse Experience.” Exploring the fab life from floor-to-floor via the famous pink elevator - including Barbie doll’s endless closet! - the exhibit debuts on two continents: North America (Sunrise, Florida) and Europe (Berlin, Germany)..
