FRIDAY FUNNIES: Fictional houses brought to life

06 February 2015 Elyse Perrau

These houses inspired by fictional characters are sure to conjure up memories of your childhood.

Barbie’s house

Barbie’s house was created by interior decorator Jonathan Adler on the eve of Barbie's 50th birthday.

In March 2009, he decked out a real-life 3,500-square feet pad overlooking the Pacific Ocean to look like the famous doll's extravagant home.


Barbie's Real-Life Malibu Dream House is located in Malibu, California.

Minnie Mouse's house

This pink and lavender house not only looks cute on the outside but is also fully equipped on the inside.

It includes items such as an answering machine (where you can listen to messages from Mickey and Goofy), an oven through which you can watch a cake baking, and a microwave that even pops popcorn.

It can be seen at the Mickey's Toontown Fair, in Orlando, Florida and also in Mickey's Toontown in Disneyland Anaheim, California.

Hello Kitty's house

This overly pink painted house was inspired by the most famous cat in history. The Hello Kitty villa is located in Taipei, Taiwan.

Flintstones-like House

This stone house looks amazingly similar to The Flintstones' house. In spite of its unusual look, given by the huge spherical boulder on the uphill side and scoop-shaped end, it is like most contemporary homes on the inside.

This house is located in Nas Montanhas de Fafe in Portuga

Up house

One Utah-based builder saw the movie Up and decided he had to build an exact replica of the home. The house sold for $400,000 in 2011 and included four bedrooms and three bathrooms. It did not, however, include the balloons.

The Simpsons house


Fox and PepsiCo offered the real-life replica of The Simpsons house as a grand prize in a competition. However, the winner opted for a cash prize instead, leaving the house to the whims of the market. Sadly, it was remodelled and now bears little resemblance to its cartoon forebear.
