Послание детям: «Смотрите, вот вилла, созданная специально для ваших детей. Ее можно передвигать, и она изготовлена из прочных, дизайнерских материалов. Мы ни на чем не экономили, наоборот. Если ваши дети – куклы будут счастливы, то это принесет счастье и вам».


В детской психотерапии вилла используется в игровой терапии. Она позволяет легко наладить контакт с детьми, поставить диагноз, а также используется как метод лечения. Клинический психолог: «Кукольная вилла способствует восприятию и лечению». Во время игры дети выносят «скрытую информацию» о себе на поверхность.

In the Netherlands




The original, handmade DollsVilla by Liliane® from 1997/1998, a design by Liliane Limpens, becomes part of the permanent museum collection of the fairy-tale Museum Children's World [1969] in Roden, near Groningen in the north of the Netherlands. The museum has an impressive collection of old dolls and bears. Children can actively play [together] in the museum café with a second one, a new DollsVilla from the 2019 production series.


Museum curator Mara Bosboom: "This way the children can see the development of a prototype into its final market shape."


In 1969 the Dutch Museum Children's World Foundation in Roden was founded by the Association for Tourist Traffic and the Association of Folk Entertainment. At the same time, in this year an appeal was made via the ANP to the Dutch population to look at toys from the past in the attic. This call was met with mass response and it was the start of a unique collection. Two foundations currently manage the Children's World Toy Museum: Dutch Museum Children's World Foundation and Foundation for preserving the Museum Children's World Collection.


Children's World Museum offers guided tours, a senior package, a package for children's parties and school trips. Teaching material will soon be available, which will enable primary schools to achieve official learning objectives.

Instead of being focused on the world of adults, the villa shifts the child’s attention to her or his own life, which is precisely where it should be.’ - Liliane


'When it comes to size, age, and impact, the Toronto-based Hospital for Sick Children, branded as SickKids, is a strong contender for one of the best pediatric hospitals in the world. In addition to being a teaching hospital affiliated with the University of Toronto.

The proceeds of the High Trap bicycle tour by Kiwanis Young Professionals Alblasserwaard Drechtsteden [KYPAD] is spent on the purchase of DollsVilla by Liliane® for the Sliedrechtse Family House De Veilige Haven. Motto of KYPAD: Serving the Children of the World: Fun, Friendship and Fundraising.


"The family house is a family house for children between 8 and 15 years old, who can not live at home for various reasons. Family parent Wendy Oward offers these children a stable basis for optimal development and for processing the traumas of the past. In the shelter, normal life is emphasized as much as possible. There is a permanent professional educator instead of a changing group management, in order to guarantee the safety and continuity for the children. The upbringing is tailored to the needs of each individual child in relation to the diversity of problems." By Elise de Haas-Kornet.


"The DollsVilla by Liliane® is absolutely of added value for out-of-home children in a family home. It contributes to the processing of traumatic experiences, because interplay with the DollsVilla keeps the direct confrontation at a distance. By applying the newly learned skills in the family home it helps to solve conflicts and to promote contact with peers. In addition, it enriches their play by stimulating imagination and creativity. The DollsVilla also contributes to a warmer living atmosphere and stimulates a sense of self-worth among the children." By Suzanne Heikoop, photographer.

Lindgrens’ creation Pippi Langkous completely draws her own way, and compares herself with no one else. Her crazy ideas, which seem impossible, never seem to be! Pippi lives in a swedish Villa on her own, is both solitary and social, she has guts, she is sweet. She is a real [animal] friend, she shares everything.
