Vintage Ads: 1981

Phasing Disco Barbie out, the colors on the house are sharp and saturated (what a refurbished one ought to look like),  no more patio triangles. =-(

  1. I am glad to see that you posted again!
    From the dolls in the ad, I am assuming this is from 1981.

    1. Hi. Been so busy, but I just added a bunch of new pix to older posts. I agree, it looks like 1981 to me. But I think they 'photo shopped' the girl in to make the house look bigger.

  4. hello....I have a question...just scored a mint condition yellow a frame for my daughter...so happy ! but, I recently saw pictures of a three story A frame...is this a hack? i mean did they simply buy parts and add a floor?? thanks!

  5. Yes, it is a total hack. they had to break wall posts in order to make it. You can make a 3 story A frame by putting it on top of a 1982 Cottage.
