Barbie's House inspired by IKEA

"We make every single piece by hand, paying attention to details, highest quality and safety," Miniio told The Huffington Post by email. "We use wood, stone, metal and some ultra modern non-toxic, food safe, great looking safe materials."
"It is a little bit like IKEA for Barbie -- decent design at affordable prices, just downsized and much less assembly required," Miniio wrote.

I love to go to IKEA just to get ideas and some pieces for my house when i have time. It's a fun place to go if you have time, a little extra money and wants to give an upgrade on a room. I have bought some furniture there before, it's not made to last, of course or they wouldn't stay in business for too long (this reminds me of a bed that my husband had when i met him, it was a twin bed that he got when he was a kid and it still around his family and may stay for one of our grand kids, because it has such a good, great, quality wood that it was made to last forever, great? yes, for the customer, but the store who used to make it, went out of business, sad, but true)
Going back to IKEA, i don't know if Barbie has time to go shopping there because a whole house was placed to her on one sit, every room, that way she doesn't have to think about it, just get the whole set.
Everything is made with non-toxic, safe and great material as stated the designer, great! this natural/Eco conversation has to start somewhere on the toy industry, I don't think a wood Barbie would look nice, unless well caved...ok let's go back to the house idea first.
Look at the pictures and doesn't look like a real IKEA made house? I really liked and you?


  1. Hello from Spain: you're right that the house of Barbie looks like the typical Ikea furniture. Near my town opened an Ikea a year ago and is always crowded. People spend all day at Ikea because you can eat and snack all there. I went once and bought the typical racks easy to assemble and put on them some Barbies and furniture. I love the pictures of this house. I wish I had the furniture for my Barbies. Congratulations on this post so original. Keep in touch

  2. Hi Marta,
    The one by me is always crowded as well, so you need to have time to go there, to look, walk around, eat and find something diferent, i like to go there every so often, but yes, you spend the whole day pretty much.
    Funny that the house is about the same price of a book shelf you buy there.
    Thanks for stopping by.
    Keep in touch!

  3. Holy crap, that made me drool! LOL! Very cool!
