Fantasy Friday: the house that Barbie built (or rather the house of Ruth Handler, creator of Barbie) #getinmyhome

This life-size dollhouse stood on the ocean front in Santa Monica, California and was home to the inventor of Barbie and co-founder of Mattel, Ruth Handler. Ruth passed away in 2002 and I’m not sure what has become of the colourful digs but I hope it remains standing and beaming in its pink and purple glory as a reminder to indulge in fantasy every so often, no matter how old we are. Grab your sunglasses and take a look…

<p>I always drive past it on PCH and i remember growing up, they used to ALWAYS repaint the outside. I always called it the barbie house, and i had no idea it was Ruth Handle’s house!
