Former Mattel CEO Who Grew Barbie Line Finally Sells Lavish California Mansion At A Huge Discount

Former Mattel CEO Jill Barad has finally sold her fancy Sunset Boulevard house at a price cut, for $10.2 million, according to The Daily Mail.

The California mansion has gone on and off the market since 2010. It was originally listed for $14.995 million.

The home has six bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a multi-level master bedroom, a spa, pool, and a “playhouse” in the backyard.

In 1982, Barad was in charge of the Barbie line. She helped increase sales by coming up with the idea of selling the doll in different packages with different accessories, creating an incentive to buy more than one, according to The Daily Mail.

She took over all of Mattel in 1997 and left the company in 2000.
