That's how the Miniio team describes its designs - It is a little bit like IKEA for Barbie - decent design at affordable prices, just downsized and much less assembly required. As much as we loved Barbie's pink townhouse (oh, and the elevator!), we prefer a little less plastic and a little more modern these days.
Miniio has created Miniko, a modern dollhouse made of solid oak wood and birch plywood. They've also designed a line of modern furniture for the house. You just supply Barbie. Although the prices aren't bargain basement, you get a lot for the money. Each piece is well-designed and handmade from non-toxic materials.
