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. I drooled over Cindy's duplex right up until my attention turned to boy bands and boys. Looking back, I remember the dollhouse I did have, which wasn't as colorful as this modern-day version but did inspire hundreds of mini family dramas and a love of architecture. So, no matter what Barbie's house is looking like lately, I am in deep adore of this open-plan purveyor of imaginative play.
