Our toys have always lived far more lavish lifestyles than we could ever dream of. Barbie has owned everything from motorhomes to planes, G.I. Joe was better equipped than the US Military, and now your child’s Playmobil figures have a gorgeous ultra-modern mansion to call home.

Aside from a disappointingly small flat-screen TV, the living room alone is enough to make anyone want to move into this plastic abode. Check out that tabletop fireplace, retro coffee table, and minibar that’s better stocked than any hotel you’ve ever stayed in. It’s no wonder that guy can barely keep his eyes open, yet has a huge grin on his face.

And check out this kitchen. Side-by-side ovens, a dishwasher, a countertop range with a swivelling hood, and a stainless steel fridge with french doors and a water dispenser. The rest of the house is just as impressive with a working doorbell, a locking safe hidden behind a painting, and a bedroom with a round bed — a round bed!

You’ll just want to make sure your Playmobil figures are pre-approved for a mortgage because the lap of luxury doesn’t come cheap. The Modern Luxury Mansion itself will sell for $US160 when available this August, but you’ll need to buy the various living room, bedroom, and kitchen sets separately and they range in price from $US16 to $US27. Completely outfitting the house will add up quickly, unless you think your Playmobil figures are OK with being house poor and don’t mind living on boxes and piles of dirty laundry. [Playmobil]
