Houses et al 1980 to 1984

Honey is one of the few horses
that the dolls can actually sit astride.
A large dog such as Beauty takes Christie for a walk,
not the other way around!

I don't know which set of dishes goes with the Bubbling Spa,
so Skipper and Barbie are using both.
There's a very slight difference between the brown shades
of the accessories of the cart and the grill.
The battery-operated Electronic Piano allows us humans
to play simple tunes such as "Alouette."
Very scary--the toilet actually flushes.
Also, Barbie's name is imprinted on the top of the tank.
Note the early mobile phone that was included with the Dream 'Vette!
Note the Yale pennant, the birthday card and the "Forever" Valentine
on the wall of Starr's bedroom.
