There was a dolls house and all its furniture made by my great grandfather and passed down the family ever since. After my daughter had outgrown it I passed it on to a cousin for her daughter and I don't know what happened to it after that. I hope it's somewhere in the extended family but, even if I find it, after 4 generations of children playing with it furniture or equipment left will be too battered for your purposes. But you have brought back a few happy memories for me :-D

I have 4, in various stages of dereliction! :-D
Two were bought new, as kits, the other 2 were badly built by someone else, and sold at charity shops.
I also have about 3 chests of drawers full of dolls house 'stuff'.

The first one I bought and built about 20 years ago - that's slowly falling apart.

Moving 2 years ago has ensured the other buildings were all damaged in some way. :-|

Yes, It's nothing special but is 1940's so interior vintage walpaper and furniture too.

Dolls are a family, Grandmother, Grandfather, grown up daughter, young daughter and baby. I've got a feeling it was a therapy dolls house. Otherwise why would there be four generations of women and only one man?

It's too old fashioned to be appealing to a child now I would have thought :-S
