SUNRISE, Fla. -- Little girls everywhere grow up dreaming of life inside Barbie's Dreamhouse. Now a full-sized replica is letting Floridians live the dream!

It is 10,000 square feet and every inch a girly girl's dream. Pink, polished and playful, Barbie's Dreamhouse is located next to a mall in Sunrise, Florida.

Every room is scaled as a life-size replica of the original Barbie Dreamhouse and  keep your eyes peeled for all the collectible Barbies around the house!

Barbie is known for her impeccable taste, so enjoy her huge closet and bedroom.

"If you had a closet this big would you die?" asks FCN's Katie Jeffries

"I would die, I would not know even what I want to do with myself," said Sade Layn, a tour guide with Barbie's Dreamhouse

More than clothes & shoes, what is it that makes Barbie so endearing?

"She is just so savvy and I wish I was like her. I think it is because she has all the careers and people can relate to her," said Layn.

Barbie has dabbled in more than 100 careers, including TV news anchor!

But maybe part of what makes Barbie so special is how rare it is for a toy to last for generations. Candace Cavalieri says she remembers her first Barbies and spotted a few while touring the house.

"My favorite part is looking at all the collectible Barbies, especially the bride Barbies. It was excellent," said Cavalieri.

Now she is sharing those memories and making new ones with her daughter, Marina.

So for the young & old, and even the dads and grandpas, anyone can escape from the real world and enter Barbie's world!
