Little girls will find this cleverly designed Barbie house hard to resist, especially the "transforming" action from retro radio to modern efficiency apartment. The house starts out as an oblong, pale yellow FM radio with wavy lime green panels on each side and pink control knobs and handle. (Three AA batteries are required; not included.) Lift the lid, open the back, and--presto!--an efficiency apartment for Barbie unfolds, with the delightful addition of small pink and aqua bead curtains on each side. There's a kitchen wing on one end with a fold-down table. Three small home appliances are included, and each makes an electronic sound when plugged in with its long hot pink cord. The set also includes a pink sofa bed that is a marvel of engineering, unfolding smoothly into a double bed. Everything can be stored back in the closed radio, although the house is small enough to leave set up in a corner of a Barbie collector's room.
This item is used. It has a little smudge by the what looks like the cassette player, but in good condition.
