Not all of us are so fortunate to live the “dream life” like the famous doll, cartoon character and now major motion picture star Barbie©.
But imagine if you could?
This summer’s blockbuster, “Barbie,” hit theatres July 21. Bringing in a record-setting $155 million in the opening weekend alone proves that many of us would love to spend a day in those pink high-heeled shoes.
If you’ve never been a Barbie fan you may not realize the luxury life that was created for her.
A dreamhouse that in the real world would cost more than $2.5 million, a pink customized convertible, 30-foot customized motorhome, and so much more.
Here at Erie Insurance, we wondered...just how much would it cost to insure such a lifestyle?
- Barbie’s Real Dreamhouse: A giant pink covered 4,900 square foot home with features including an elevator, spiral staircase, walk-in closet (of course), four bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms and an in-ground pool. A home like this, with all the high-end extras and finishes on the lake in Erie, Pa., would cost anywhere from $7,000 to $8,000 a year to insure with ERIE.
- Corvette & Camper: This 2023 Chevy Corvette convertible has all the latest bells and whistles. Yes, it’s pink too. And the real-life version of this playtime favorite camper comes fully furnished with a custom kitchen that includes a stovetop, oven and refrigerator. To cover these automobiles with a traditional ERIE auto policy would come with a yearly premium of $22,763.
Bundle with ERIE
It doesn’t matter if you are living the dream on the Malibu coast or a humble abode in Erie, Pa., we all love a good deal.
So why not take advantage of bundling, Barbie?
Erie Insurance offers multi-policy discounts that vary depending on the state where your auto and home are insured, or you can bundle with a life insurance plan through ERIE.*
So, if you insure multiple cars or have multiple polices with ERIE (life insurance or home policy plus auto insurance), discounts could apply, up to 25%.
If Barbie was able to secure policies with ERIE, she would save more than $4,000 by bundling! She could use those savings to buy, I don’t know...maybe a pink motorcycle?
