I'm fascinated by dollhouses for the dollhouse. My small collection includes the Lundby mini dollhouse (one of the few surviving pieces from my childhood collection) and a tiny replica of my very first dollhouse (now long gone). It's a Fisher Price handmade by a very clever Etsy seller in Wisconsin, USA:
Thanks to my friend Linda, I've expanded my collection with several vintage Sylvanian Families mini homes, some with their own minuscule furniture. That's a mini treehouse to the right of the middle house:
The Fisher Price and Sylvanian houses pictured above are about the right scale for the Lundby folks. But this Sylvanian house (thank you, Linda!) is about double in scale:
The front hinges open to reveal the cozy furnished interior, complete with a fuzzy rabbit inhabitant:
Do you have any mini houses in your collection? I'd love to hear about them.
