Pink A Frame DreamHouse: Pics and Opinions

I dont think I have ever seen the pink house in so good a condition, all complete and with a box also in great shape. Either someone really took good care of their stuff, or it wasnt played with at all. If anyone knows the year this particular box art and window version came out, please post here. I am trying to get together the years that the 3 different window variations came out on the pink house. Sadly there is no variation on the original red roofed house. Although that does make replacing windows easier.

Mattel always did have a pentient for drawing/diagram art on the back of the box. My 1985 Masters of the Universe Eternia set had the same type of artwork. And was equally as large a playset with three different sections. Maybe this house is where they got that idea from. It had to be a succesfull house as it was issued for 7 years not counting the reinvention in 2011.

Pink and green do go well together.

in response to There are quite a few versions of the Dream House, the first one came with the mirrored closet doors, furnished version came with the patio triangles while unfurnished version did not...later version of the house did not included the mirrored closet doors and the furniture also was missing the mirrored finish (the coffee and end table) Then they changed the furniture color to the pink, same Dream Furniture but in a different color scheme (pink & white) The house was updated in 1986 in a light pink color,the light pink color version is the hardest to find today it was produced for a year and then Mattel used a more raspberry colored roof instead of the soft pink. Also the windows changed from the clear with the light pink trim to darker pink trim to and all light pink window and the last version came with the all hot pink windows and an almost hot pink roof to match!! The last Dream House was manufactured in 1991. Quite a long running production since the house first appeared in 1978.


Color and packaging were modified for the second generation of the Dream Furniture china cabinet. The pink one is still rather hard to find, though not as rare as the white and orange one issued in Europe.
