When I found the Barbie Country Camper at Thrift Town, I also found this Barbie Country Living Home. It is truly a genius design.

It opens up to reveal a three room house, all in a portable case.

The back is made to look like the outside of the home.

Barbie looks right at home in the colorful house.

If eBay is to be believed, this home came with furniture: a white couch, a white chair, a white coffee table, an orange kitchen table, two orange kitchen chairs and a green bed.

The home I found was broken and couldn’t be carried by its handle, but I think I’ve fixed it with some very powerful Gorilla Glue. It should provide years of play for my nieces and any other little girls who visit my house.

  1. Thank you for writing about this Barbie Country Living Home. I had this when I was a child and it rocked! I couldn’t remember the name of it. I searched for an hour before I found your blog. It’s great to see all the pictures. Thanks again for helping me relive some happy childhood memories. I’ll bookmark your blog!

  2. I still have this and yes Ebay is right about the furniture. I still have most of it. I beleive the bed is cracked. I played with this house most of all…the swinging door between the living room and kitchen fascinated me and I think there was a “pie” cooking in the oven…that was always going to be dessert. Love it!

  4. Laura, You did a wonderful job explaining and showcasing the Barbie Country Living Home. I have one with all the original furniture. I believe there were two models with the only thing differing was the color choice of the bed. I opted for the pink and orange bed instead of the green one. I don’t believe many were made with the pink and green bed. Unfortunately, my kids are grown so it’s time to sell mine. I hate it just sitting in my basement!

    Thanks, Brenda
