Redbox Dollhouse

My husband came home the other day with an old Redbox fold up dollhouse. It is quite small and would probably fit only dolls about 3-4 inches tall like Mini Lalaloopsy or Calico Critters.  

Here is a view of the back.  I totally love the clear (fake) glass windows!

The back door is also made of clear plastic and there is a fountain carving on the wall right next to it.

Here is the inside view.  I like the design of the house and the large bay windows, clear imitation glass (aka plastic) doors and windows but I dislike the green floor.  The balcony is only for show as it is too narrow to use but the roomy interior makes up for that.

I quite like that when you press the doorbell in the front, it will ring and light up the lamps outside.

 And inside as well, on the first floor.

And second floor.

I filled the house with furniture from the Mini Lalaloopsy collection and from the Calico Critters / Sylvanian Families collection too.  Now let's see how if the Mini Lalaloopsy dolls like the house.



I think they quite like it and it's much more spacious than their Lala Play House!

I love this dollhouse but it seems some parts are missing.  Parts that would make it more sturdy.  I don't know what they are but I think it might be two or three columns.  Or maybe I don't know how to set it up properly because the second floor keeps on collapsing at the slightest movement.  Does anybody know what the house looks like brand new? 

It is still a wonderful dollhouse though and I could probably fix the problem by making and installing two new columns.  I might also paint the floor another color and paint over the fountain carving.  But overall I am quite happy with this house.

I wanted to try the dollhouse with other types of occupants like Calico Critters, LPS Blythe, etc but I ran out of time.  My children were waiting for their bedtime stories so this will have to wait for another day!

Do you like the dollhouse?

    1. Hi Maria! The Lalas are delighted! It's just the right size for them!

  3. oh my heavens this is darling!!! with the lalas! love the working lights :)

    1. The lights are really wonderful! It's even better when you dim the room's light to make the dollhouse light even more dramatic!

  4. Looks like a really fun dollhouse. The Lalaloopsy in the bathtub looks very relaxed! xo Jennifer

    1. Oh that the Marina doll that came with the bathtub! I'll have to show her in detail one day! She came with so many accessories!
