Barbie Dreamhouse 2013 Gets A Makeover Now That Our Favorite Doll Is Staying In Malibu (PHOTOS)

After putting her home on the market for $25 million six months ago and traveling to several cities in search of her new dream home, Barbie decided in the end, that she belongs in Malibu, near Ken of course. So, instead of moving, she renovated her pad. And the Barbie Dreamhouse 2013 is looking good.

The upgrades to the three-story, 8,500-square-foot house include an additional room (a walk-in closet, obviously), an extra elevator (into said closet for quick wardrobe changes), brand new pink stainless steel appliances in the gourmet kitchen and a balcony with ocean views. Let's not forget, according to Trulia's listing "this is the only home in Malibu with a self-flushing toilet and fireplace that crackles even when it's not on."


In all seriousness, the newest version of the forty-one-year-old toy by Mattel is something of little girls' dreams and it's in stores now for $184.99.

Wow, Barbie's pads just keep getting better and better. Take a look back at her past Dreamhouses since 1962.
