The Runaway Dreamhouse Coorporation cordially invites you to the product launch party of their most recent product, the Runaway Dreamhouse! You'll want to buy it for all the little kiddos in your life, just ask our spokesperson yourself! Kitty, an awkward pre-teen, is having a tough time at home with her family. No one understands her, so she writes in her diary and wishes to run away forever! Where would she go, you ask? The mall, of course! After a strange nightmare, Kitty wakes up to find her wish came true. A Runaway Dreamhouse magically appears in her bedroom. She packs up her things and runs away to the mall. Life now is perfect, everyone she meets greets her with a smile, and everything is going her way. The Runaway Dreamhouse allows kids everywhere to runaway without ever leaving home!
