We make dollhouses according to our own imagination. But we were also curious about the children’s concept of a dream house – a house that is not for their dolls or other toys but for themselves and their families. So, in one event that we went to, we asked the children to draw their dream houses. Armed with their coloring materials, they all got serious in drawing the house that they want to live in. It is really interesting to know a child’s concept of an ideal house. Some of them want to live in simple houses while others want to live in multi-level structures. But they all want their homes to be colorful. They colored their houses red, blue, yellow, purple, green, and violet. They also want to be close to nature – with trees, plants, flowers, birds, and their beloved pets all over the place. The surroundings are clean and project an image of a safe place for them to stay and play with other children. It should also be spacious with playgrounds and parks so that they are free to play and have fun whenever they want to. The houses that they drew were big because they said that there should be sufficient room for each member of the family and with a space where they can play and have fun even inside the house. Some elaborated on which appliances they want to have such as television sets, computers, air conditioning units, and speakers. Some want to have their swimming pools. They also drew cars parked in their garage. Most of all, they drew their families living comfortably inside the house. All of these pictures reflect how much they want to live in a house and community where they can be free to enjoy life under the sun – with all of their love ones.
Lille Huset Shop lets you have the opportunity to create your own dollhouse at home. We understand that not all parents can afford to buy dollhouses for their little girls so we have made available some printable designs that can be downloaded anytime. So, prepare your craft materials and get ready to design your own dollhouse.
First, go to our Free Downloads section and choose the design that you want. We have resized the dollhouses according to standard measurements. All you have to do is to print them. The printed material will serve as your pattern. Take note of the page numbers so that you can connect them properly. Check our special instructions on the specific design that you have chosen.
Attach the printed sheets or pattern for your chosen design on a cardboard. Follow the pattern and cut the cardboard accordingly.
Next, out your design on the cardboard. You can use paints, markers, and other art materials. We also suggest you use a sticker paper that can be attached to the cardboard. There are lots of designs to choose from. This will serve as the wallpaper of the floor, ceiling, walls, doors, and other parts of your dollhouse. Be as creative as you can be! You can make your dream dollhouse come true.
We also have dollhouse accessories such as home furniture and appliances that are available for download on our website. Choose what you want to add to your dollhouse, print them, trace them on the cardhouse, cut, and put designs on them.
Lastly, put the pieces together. We suggest you use a glue gun to make sure that the parts stick really well together. Arrange the home furniture and appliances inside the dollhouse. Let the glue and paint dry for a full day and then, your dollhouse is ready! You or your little one can play with it all day long. Enjoy!
It is one of Lille Huset Shop’s advocacies to make little children’s wishes come true. An organization reached out to us if we could sponsor the dollhouses to be given as gifts to sick children. And of course, we were up to the task. We want nothing more than to put a smile on those little children’s faces and to relieve them from their illnesses even for just a while. Our team made special dollhouses for those lovely children in the hospital. We also contacted our business partner if they could provide dolls and toys for them and they also agreed wholeheartedly. We were so excited about our outreach project. This would be our Christmas present to the little kids who were spending their holidays in the hospital. We know that they would rather be outside the halls of the hospitals but we hope that our simple gifts would cheer them up during this holiday season. During the hospital’s Christmas party at the children’s ward, we got to give them our presents. Their lovely faces lit up with joy. Nothing can compare to the happiness on their little faces. It was their gift to us. Seeing them happy makes our hearts glad and rejoice. We felt very blessed to be able to give joy to the little children. We hope that our little tokens would lift their spirits and help them on their way to recovery.
Lille Huset Shop is doing our best to make little children’s wishes come true. This includes little children who cannot afford to buy our dollhouses and those who are sick in the hospitals.
