Lundby Smaland Swedish Design Doll House Review & Holiday Gift Guide Pick!!!

Lundby Lg Logo

If you are someone like me who has always adored dolls and doll houses, you know that no matter how old you get, you seldom outgrow it.  Truth is, we just call ourselves collectors and it’s acceptable to indulge that side of us. A great thing about having kids is that we can actually play with their toys as well.  Sometimes we buy toys more for ourselves than for them.

I have to admit, I was not aware of the rich history that Lundby had in the doll house world.  It didn’t take long to find out, just a quick search on the internet and I found they have been at it since 1947 and they have a very large following of collectors who are restoring vintage Lundby doll houses and reveling in the newest Lundby Smaland Doll Houses and accessories.  The Smaland Doll’s House has been a favorite since the 1950s and was totally redesigned in 2011 with  all-new contemporary decor.

I was thrilled to assemble our new Lundby Smaland Doll House.  It was very easy and when it was all together, we moved on to the furnishings and the lights!  The Smaland Doll’s House is prewired with Lundby’s unique 4.5 volt lighting system that allow you to decorate with all kinds of Lundby light fixtures.

The house is expandable and you can add an additional 2 rooms to the house, a summer or winter garden and white picket fence.  The house is so detailed and features full functional doors and widows, a balcony and colorful papered floors and walls.  My kids were amazed at the real working lights and  realistic furnishings.   The bathroom set even included the tumblers with little yellow toothbrushes, 2 rubber ducks, towels, shampoo and soap bottles.  The house, available furnishings, dolls, expansion sets and pets allow you to totally create the house of your dreams!!!  Dimensions: 30.3 x 10.2 x 15.4 inches. Scale 1:18. Please note: power supply, lights, furniture, accessories and dolls are not included. Appropriate for children ages 3 and over, with adult supervision.

    THis is so awesome! I think this is great for little girls! I would have LOVED to have this when I was little! I might just get it for my daughter! 🙂
    Thanks for sharing!

    What a beautiful house! My kids would go crazy for this.

  4. Karen Medlin

    Very cute, I can see my gals playing for a long time arranging the furniture, I love that the lights really work. Any little girl would be tickled to own one.

  5. Brittany Ricciardi

    I love the detail!! Doll houses sure have come along way since I was a kid.

    Nice job! I have this house, with most of the same furnishings. Only question is how you got the shower enclosure to fit next to the vanity without scratching the wall. Mine seems to be just an iota “off” for some reason.

    • I did not have a problem getting the shower in and out. That is strange, my little ones even take it out and move it around. I think that is how it got there because originally I had it somewhere else and then I was told it could fit next to the vanity, lol and that is where it is in the pictures so not sure why yours does not fit.

        I did notice that there are a couple of different shower “sets” available; the shower/old-fashioned tub and the shower/rectangle tub. Perhaps the one I got (the latter) was *slightly* wider? Not sure. As a solution I just use either the shower or tub by the main wall, with the commode next to the vanity. The residents don’t seem to mind. 😀

  7. This is so cute I would have loved having this as a little girl or having it for my daughter.

  8. Kimberly Schotz

    Wish I would have had one of these when I was a kid.

  17. Madeline

    As a child, I had a wooden dollhouse in a box that my father never built because it was too difficult. This looks much easier to put together!

  18. Melissa Johnson

    This is amazing! I always wanted a doll house like this when I was little. Hopefully if we have a little girl we can get one as awesome as this for her!

  19. Shaun Morris

    VERY CREATIVE! especially the lights and electrical work!

  20. Patricia N

    Wow! My daughter would have gone crazy over this dollhouse when she was younger. It has such attention to detail. It would keep a child busy for hours.

  21. Connie

    This makes me wish I was a little girl again.

  22. Sandra VanHoey

    My girls were given a doll house that their grandparents had done for them and it is treasured. I love this and would love for my granddaughters

  23. Jennifer Hiles

    I would have just loved this as a child and I’m sure my daughter’s would now. I really like all the detail and especially the lighting! So awesome that you can decorate with different Lundby light fixtures!!

  24. Barbara

    My daughter got this house for her 3rd birthday but after less then a week of normal use, the electrical system has stopped to work. I wonder… Without the lights, the house is less charming!
