Barbie Malibu Dreamhouse Listed for $25 Million on Real-Estate Site Trulia helps out with Mattel campaign

If you're looking for real estate in Malibu, you'll find one very famous single-family home currented listed on It has only one bedroom, and the furnishings look almost uniformly plastic, yet it's priced at a cool $25 million.

Yes, it's the Barbie Malibu Dreamhouse, the famed beachfront property where Malibu Barbie has lived since her introduction in 1971. But with Mattel preparing to unveil Barbie's new home in a playset this fall, the toy maker is now pretending to put the Malibu place on the market—with a little help from Trulia. The listing is amusing, top to bottom. "This is the only house in Malibu with a truly unobstructed view of the ocean (after all, it only has three walls) creating the ultimate in California indoor-outdoor living with stunning views from Point Dume to the Queen's Necklace," it says. "This is the only home in Malibu with a self-flushing toilet and fireplace that crackles even when it's not on … [and] an array of action-packed beach toys from the hottest surfboards to jazzy watercraft (all sold separately)."

If $25 million seems a little steep, you can still pick up a replica on Amazon for $154.99.
