Did you know that you can buy an adorable, sustainably made dollhouse — furniture, dolls, and landscaping included, for under $20? The fabulous Pink Paper Dollhouse world from Fantastic Toys is craftily designed by artist Timothy Haugen and constructed by you and your little one with a few household items and a lot of imagination and fun!
Haugen has a background in miniatures, and he wanted to share his knowledge by offering easy paper instructions for the perfect first dollhouse. Directions on how to build each set are sent to you in PDF form. Simply download the PDF, gather some simple materials: 60-120 lb. recycled cardstock, double sided tape, recycled chipboard, non-toxic glue, scissors, and toothpicks, and you and your child are ready to create an entire dollhouse! Each set is sold separately, but the total cost of the dollhouse, dollhouse furniture, and dollhouse landscaping instructions adds up to just $18! The adorable little dollhouse inhabitants: Pow Pow, Kiki, Elton and Monty are FREE — no purchase required! This is a great summertime or anytime craft project that your child will love to create with you; and it may be enjoyed for years to come.
