My next door neighbor had this. I don’t think I’ve ever coveted anything as much as I coveted this toy in 1978. I didn’t even get along with her all that well, but I rode the bus home thinking about nothing but getting my snack and then going over her house to play with Cher and her fabulous Bob Mackie wardrobe. 
I later got a Barbie Townhouse and my basement rec room became the place to be for the neighborhood girls, until its support tubes got infested with earwigs. That was horrific and it was a long time before anybody would come play at my house again.
The Townhouse ruins took up the corner at the foot of the stairs for years, totally ignored, until in 7th grade when my mom let me have a co-ed birthday party. I had an epic crush on Rich Fontaine and had no idea what to say when he grabbed two of the Barbies, stripped them naked, and locked them in a lewd and awkward, molded plastic 69 that freaked my mother out so hard she wouldn’t let boys back in our house for another year.
