Homemade Dollhouse number 3: a dollhouse in a suitcase!

Not a “dollhouse” exactly, but this suitcase is suitable as one! And if you just close it, it becomes portable so that you can take it with you everywhere 😉

I wrote an in-depth article about dollhouse suitcases!

Homemade Dollhouse number 4: a portable and foldable dollhouse

Another portable dollhouse, but this time not in a suitcase, but a wooden and foldable one.

Homemade Dollhouse number 5: The Painted Lady Dollhouse

This finished dollhouse, painted, wallpapered, and decorated floors/doors/molding, including lights, was originally a dollhouse kit from a company named RealGood Toys.

The next dollhouse is constructed from a Greenleaf’s Harrison model.

The current owner started working on it in December of 2021 with a cozy and unique design in mind.

She wanted it to feel like it belonged in Stars Hallow with some light florals, gingham, and deep jewel tones. It has seven one-of-a-kind, fully decorated rooms.

It is a DIY dollhouse puzzle, which means that you do have some work to do, but the result is a copy of a home in Laurel Delaware in the US, and its design is in the Gothic style.

This house has 3 stores and has striking detail in its millwork and gorgeous colonial windows.

  1. My 4-year-old niece really loves to play with dollhouses and since her birthday is coming up, I want to give her a new dollhouse. 

    Your selection of dollhouses is really cute! ☺ Indeed, they are so tiny that I am already imagining what it would be like as a tiny person living in one of these. That would be really cool, I’m sure!

    But while these are all so pretty and adorable, I am having a hard time deciding which one is perfect for my niece. Since she already has about 2 or three dollhouses, I want to give her something that she will really like. 

    If it were to choose one for myself, I would definitely go with The Shimmer Mansion Dollhouse because it is of the right size, not too tiny and not too big. I do not have to worry about small children swallowing some of the pieces. But I know my niece loves Barbie so I’m gonna have to choose the Barbie-like homemade dollhouse. It would be perfect for her Barbie dolls.

    By the way, which among all these is your personal favorite? If you were to buy one for yourself, which one would it be and why?

    • Hi Alice

      Thank you for your wonderful comment and story, and for sure, the Shimmer Mansion Dollhouse is awesome for your niece I would think 😉

      My personal favorite is the fairy garden boot, made in a real boot, I think it is very nice art!

      Kind regards,


  2. What an amazing hobby. Though I am not a woman and never played with dolls or doll houses I can appreciate the imagination that goes into creating them.

    Not only that it takes a lot of skill and craftsmanship along with attention to detail when it comes to creating this miniature masterpieces.

    • Hi JR!

      Thank you for your positivity and for sure: there are lots of men creating (wooden) dollhouses as well. Do you know Kevin Jackson, and his Tudor dollhouses, for example? Amazing craftmanship!

      Kind regards,
