Bringing to life the childhood memories of little girls worldwide, Canadian artist Heather Benning has transformed an abandoned farmhouse in southwestern Manitoba into a life-sized dollhouse.

I can't see Barbie and Ken ditching their Malibu beach house to live there, but it's impressive nonetheless.
