It seems that most dollhouses are made for small dolls. Doll discrimination I say! Larger dolls are all the rage lately and many push up to 30 inches. Well tall dolls, these houses are for you… and potentially the family cat.

Liliane Limpens loved playing with dolls and dollhouses as a child for the imaginative escape they provided. She began making wood play furniture for her children in 1996 and eventually decided to design these large doll villas to sell. She describes the impetus behind the company: "My motivation to design the dolls villa stems from a desire to give children their own dream villa. This villa had to be top quality, and not meant for tiny dolls, but an exclusive, private domain, just for their favourite dolls. A domain with its own standards, values, rules and freedoms. One that children nurture as they grow older."

Notably, the villas, which come in two sizes, are on wheels so they can be stored against a wall and moved for play. As is important to Liliane, they are sustainably built (in Germany). Not surprisingly, they are quite expensive and are often purchased by daycare centers and schools. The interior furnishings are also for sale.
