These dollhouses are stylish, colorful and reasonably priced. I’d love to have the two-story white and green house now. Strange to see that a fall out shelter comes with the Colonial metal house at the bottom right corner. This was during the Cold War era, so I guess that’s why it was included.
A five room doll house can be supplied with furniture for only $2.99. Out of curiosity, I checked Ebay to see if I could find one of these dollhouses. While I didn’t find an exact match, similiar ones sold at the buy it now price of $50.00.
This Barbie stuff is fantastic! The Barbie game “Prom Queen” on the left hand side right corner sells for $2.99. My aunt had this game in the 1960s and I remember my sister and I would play it during visits to our grandparents in the 1970s. It was such a fun game. I’m trying to find a reproduction of this game for a Christmas gift and the cheapest one I’ve found is $83.00 at Amazon. Several years ago I bought one to give my niece for Christmas and the game has more than tripled in price since then. Needless to say, I won’t be buying a Barbie game this year.
The Barbie portable home on the right hand side bottom corner sells for $4.44. I’ve found a 1960 version on Ebay for a buy it now price of $85.00. Click here if you’d like to see the listing and closeup photos of the Barbie house.
The doll pages were included with the girls toys, but there are several that would apply to boys such as Dennis the Menace, Popeye, Mr. Magoo and Raggedy Andy. The clown at the top looks scary, I can’t imagine giving a child this toy. He’s the stuff of nightmares!
As a little girl I loved Raggedy Ann. She was my favorite doll until the Christmas of 1968 when I received my first Barbie doll.
Please stop by for Fashion Friday, as I plan to post pages of clothing from this 1962 Sears Christmas catalog.
