Barbie’s Malibu Dream House up for sale!

Say it aint so!!  Is Barbie in financial difficulty?!  According to Mattel, Barbie sales declined 4% in the 4th quarter marking the third strait quarterly decline in 2012  (source).  Mattel has announced that there will be a new Barbie abode for 2013.  Now…why am I spouting financials on this otherwise fun and oft times irreverent doll blog?  Because I want to talk about the listing.  YES!  In a fresh PR move by Mattel, there is an honest to goodness listing for Barbie’s Malibu Dream House

Let’s take a look shall we:

1) $25 Million!  Wow!  Well…it is Malibu and it is beach front.  That three wall thing could be a problem though.

2) I don’t know about you guys but…for that price, I would need more than one bedroom and 1 bath.

3) 8,500 sqft.  Is that in Hobbit alter dimensional measurement?  How come it only takes up three feet in my play room?

4) Diamond encrusted accents?!  Okay…that explains the $25 million price tag.

5) Barbie signature silo head????  I thought I had heard every Barbie related term…apparently not.  What is it?

6) Sorry…I love pink but…the pink granite countertops would be a deal breaker for me.

I have to give it to Mattel.  This one is just plain fun!  Smile
