SFMOMA Museum Store: Doll House Villa

For three years running, I begged Santa for Barbie's Dream House. Santa didn't hear me. But, for some inexplicable reason, he heard my best friend Cindy.

Since all that is really required is a little help opening the box (that doubles as the airport hub), this set is perfect for little ones who have yet to reach the Lego stage of imaginative play. And in my own experience, airports, airplanes and air travel fascinate just about every kid. (Until they actually have to do it for a living, that is.)
