Silvia Fabro - Italian product & graphic designer:

Quando si dice "amore a prima vista"! Dollsvilla by Liliane® Limpens [When you say "love at first sight"!] Facebook Fabrodesign August 12, 2020.


Hello Liliane, I am a designer, Montessori by vocation and I think your product is beautiful. I saw the Villa in Milan (Fuorisalone). My favorite job is to design for children and your house is a very beautiful message: gender neutrality and much more. It's so nice to see someone pays attention to the details for children's toys.


Thank you Silvia! Children are in the basement of new lifes, that is why investing in them is so fundamental, a person carries the emo-DNA of the base for a lifetime. Gender neutrality, how nice to define this.

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.

Checking in and out of hotels can be a stressful business for customers with young children. While dad is checking the bill and mum is worrying about making it to the airport on time, the kids are often wreaking havoc in the busy hotel lobby. Other hotel guests are irritated by the noise and already busy staff have an extra issue to deal with.


Now there’s a great way to ease their pain and add a little special customer service for guests with young children. The Liliane DollsVilla. A giant designer Dolls House that will make a huge impression on your junior guests and bring some much needed peace and quiet to an already bustling hotel lobby. Put a Liliane DollsVilla in the corner of the hotel lobby and you will alleviate the nr 1 reason that kids get out of control, boredom. With the DollsVilla captivating them there will be no problems with kids roaming your hotel lobby looking for thrills.


The beautifully designed doll house, which measures 120x62x128, is the perfect safe haven for kids. It’s made of modified birch plywood and stainless steel and allows up to five to six children to play at once. It comes fully furnished, with a kitchen counter and a catalogue of wood furniture next to a functional wall mirror and aluminium utensils in seven rooms connected by two spiral staircases. Children love big dolls and the dolls that come with the villa are a foot tall.


Moving the doll house to another part of the lobby is effortless thanks to the wheels under its base. The Dutch designer Liliane Limpens, a former art magazine editor, wanted to create the perfect haven for kids to play and wanted to create “a special home for the children’s children”, “It had to be an exclusive and private place, with its own rules and sense of freedom and specifically for your favourite dolls!”, she also adds that “dolls and stuffed animals play an important role in a child’s learning curve about attachment and trust.”

Директор по образовательным поставкам Asco в Лидсе, Соединенное Королевство, Том Маршал:
«Вчера мы доставили первую кукольную виллу в Лидс. Мы согласились ее также смонтировать. Я это делал первый раз в жизни и хочу вам сказать, что я под большим впечатлением от ее конструкции, насколько хорошо она сделана, как все друг другу подходит, инструкция по сборке легка для понимания, а игрушечная мебель - высококачественна. Клиент  - член известной ассоциации дневных центров для детей - был в восторге от кукольной виллы LILIANE».

Предоставляют ли производители центрам по уходу за детьми именно ту продукцию, что обещают? Педагоги и дети проверяют продукты на практике. В рубрике «Экспертиза» нидерландского журнала «Уход за детьми» [Kinderopvang] сообщается об опыте использования игровой продукции.


Педагоги: «Дети в возрасте от четырех до шести- семи лет много играют с кукольной виллой. Мальчики играют с ней даже больше: они пускают машинки ездить по вилле. Вилла выглядит красиво, и дети могут играть с ней с любой стороны. И детям младшего дошкольного возраста это нравится. Съемные части от виллы также используются в других играх. Дом может служить и просто конструкцией для лазания. Он достаточно прочен для этого. Минусов совершенно нет. Сначала кукольная вилла нам кажется огромным чудовищем, но из-за того, что ее можно легко передвинуть и переставить в другое место, она не мешается под ногами».


Главный редактор Марике Фроом: «LILIANE абсолютно необходимый предмет в образовательных учреждениях для детей дошкольного и младшего школьного возраста. Даже дети старшего дошкольного возраста получают огромное удовольствие от игры с ней. Кукольная вилла очень красиво выглядит и имеет прочную конструкцию».
