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.
