Barbie's First House

I'm not sure how many houses Barbie had it until now, but this is the very first one!
The first Barbie's house was released in 1962 by Mattel. It was made totally from cardboard and folded out from box. The first "Barbie's dream house" was one large studio apartment style room, complete with furniture.
Barbie's Dream House included a bed with bedside, sofa, coffee table, side chair with footstool and a sideboard. There were also cardboard rugs and pictures.
A chest of draws, wardrobe and bookcase with cupboards were built into the back wall of the doll house. These could not be opened and were just for show. The whole house could be folded up back into a box with a carry handle so you could take it with you anywhere.
