I made this Dolls House for my Granddaughters. It comprises six different boxes, a porch and stairs that can be assembled in any configuration. For example 1 house of 6 rooms, two houses of 3 rooms or even 6 houses of 1 room. The sloping roofs were meant to prevent them from stacking 6 high but a way was found to do this. Knitted dolls from our local craft co-op were used to populate the rooms.

My only mistake was to use acrylic paint which sticks when two surfaces were placed together. Gave a quick result but not a successful one.

The other toys were made for assorted children. The truck is a basic pattern that I use a lot with many variations.

The modular doll house looks awesome, and I think I’ll copy your boat design too.

BTW, have you visited Caminito in Buenos Aires? :)

Happy for you to copy my work. Great if you could post a picture as you might see improvements I can adopt. I have not been to Buenos Aires.

That’s very color and very refreshing! Nicely done.
