Our Family Dollhouses

I have a 1970’s Lundby dolls house with a basement which I bought from a boot fair. It has seven rooms. They are two bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, dining room and a lounge. But I do not have enough furniture yet for the other room. The furniture is also 1970’s and is Lundby and Caroline’s home. The house is 1:16 th scale. This means that sixteen centimetres in real life is one centimetre in the dolls house.

For my birthday I got a family of Lundby dolls including mum, dad, girl, boy and grandparents. I have another girl doll which I got with the dollhouse. I have made my own food to go in it.

My mum has a dollshouse which is Victorian style. It has seven rooms and three hallways. She also has a conservatory and a cherub boudoir room box. She is now saving up for a tower to make into a wizards house. These are 1:12 th scale.

To help pay for this my mum makes dollhouse dolls, food and other things to sell on e-bay. A lot of them have gone to America. She also belongs to a dolls house swap group and she has made lots of great things for it like tiny Faberge eggs. At Christmas everyone makes 25 things for an advent swap. She has just finished a swap for Mother’s Day, of a vase of flowers, cards, chocolates, cake and perfume. My mum has also written articles for an online dollshouse magazine.

My brother wants to have a dollhouse pub when he is older. My little sister likes dollshouses too. She has a toy farm, cottage and a post office from the Early Learning Centre. They have little dolls, animals and cars. I think she will have a proper dollshouse when she is old enough.

Do you belong to a Dolls House? Please write and tell me about it. (woodlandsweb@hotmail.com)
