Barbie's 'dream house' may have just got a whole lot more modern-but how much would it cost to turn your home into a real life 100% pink,smart-house set you back? Thankfully, someone's done the math. The cost? $188,000

Mattel unveiled Barbie's updated dream house at last weeks NY toy fair. The house has access to the internet and uses a voice controlled app to control the houses lights, elevator, sound system and disco ball. 

Just to make you feel depressed about the lack of app controlled parties in your life, a Vocativ analysis worked out that installing a similar amount of gadgetry in your home would set you back almost $200,000. Thanks again for the unrealistic life expectations Barbie!

If you are thinking of adding the very first Barbie smart home to your collection, expect to pay somewhere in the region of $300.
