Other Houses: 1975 Mountain House $8.99


I came across this ad this week while doing a random scour of the internet for anything A Frame small house that I was not aware of. This is a textbook A Frame dollhouse. There is a catch however. Upon closer examination one can see that the house stands in at 11.5 inches, and the people only 3.5 inches. So, not a Barbie house, but still noteworthy. Perhaps this was the inspiration for the '78 Dream House we love so so much.

  1. I love it, it's so 70s. I've often thought about making a "ski cabin" type of thing for Malibu Barbie, similar in style to something like this.

  3. I had this doll house. It was from Marx, called the Mountain House. And yes, it was quite petite.

  4. Marx put out so much great stuff....Its unfortunate they soon decided to manufacture in Hong Kong so I cant give it 'good ol' American company out of West Veginia' creds, but a house this scale certainly takes up a lot less room than the red/white/yellow one from Mattel. I am getting into the wooden A Frame kits from the 70's I keep seeing. You could almost put that in your study and not have company think you're strange because you have it. ;-)

  6. I owned this exact doll house. It is probably my all time favorite toy from my childhood. I wish I'h have kept it. The dolls were tiny and you could bend their legs. I don't remember any dolls similar at that time. Such fond memories seeing this picture. :D
