Way Cool Dollhouses

I wasn’t a big dollhouse girl growing up, but maybe I just had modern tastes even back then and all of the dollhouses were very traditional. I did have fun tagging along with my mom and sister to the dollhouse store and ogling all the tons of tiny everythings to deck out the houses.

Here’s a roundup of some non-traditional houses that had me all oohing and aahing and wishing I was 7 years old.

Note: Many of these items aren’t available any longer, because I wrote this post a while ago. I wanted to keep the photos on, though, basically for inspiration. I’ll try to keep this updated with new links to cool dollhouses at the bottom of the post!

I would set a person sleeping peacefully in bed, while ferocious wild animals lay in wait outside the walls, but that’s just me.

These weird-lookin’ boxes are from the Swedish company Our Children’s Gorilla, available through Huset. Made from cardboard, natural wood fiber board. Eco fact: recycled unbleached materials. The same company makes this A-frame mini dollhouse.

Check out this beauty. It’s the Green Dollhouse with furniture (see the wind turbine?) So cool.

momolldollhouseI love this house from Momoll because it’s open and accessible from all sides, plus you can choose your roof color. Here’s some more info. from their website:

Die zerlegbare Puppenstube ist eine moderne Interpretation eines Spielzeugklassikers. Das zeitgenössische Chalet überzeugt durch einladende Einfachheit und Räumlichkeit.

Um, I think that means, check out our awesome dollhouse! Your kids will have fun with roll playing and imagining.

 

 

mini pod houses

Paris Renfroe designs these fantastic stackable pod houses and furniture. I found it hard to tear myself from his site- the pieces are made to order and are little works of art.

  1. These are very cool! I really like the aframe and the black and white one although it makes me laugh a little because my imagination went a little crazy imagining the kids that have that one.

  2. Oh my! I had no idea that there were such cool doll houses out there! Too bad my girls are too old for these! I love the first one and the modern one with crates.

  3. I know! It never crossed my mind to buy my daughter a dollhouse when she was younger, and they are such great ways to encourage role play. Weird. I can see how some adults could get really caught up in decorating some of these.

  4. I am a retired designer and love Brinca Dada.
    Too bad you can’t find one of these anymore but going to see if I can recreate the Emerson.
    The one thing I find frustrating is that I prefer mid century and all the miniature supplier only have Victorian and the like.
    Love your vision and glad to see I am not alone.
    Love for you to see what I did with the Greenleaf trailer. Mine is trashy trailer from ’69.

    • I would LOVE to see that! Isn’t it funny how dollhouses for so long have automatically meant Victorian style? the modern ones are so cool. Please send me images of yours!
