The implicit message I want to
give to children is:
'Look, here is
a villa made just for your children.
The villa is sturdy, mobile and made from sustainable design
materials. No expense has been spared; on the contrary. If your
children - the dolls - are happy, this contributes to your own happiness.'
In the home, the villa is not only fun for the whole family, but
it is educational for parents. By listening to their children’s
stories and watching their movements, children’s developmental

"Birch plywood, stainless steel, transparent varnish, wheels... I wouldn't
mind to play with this and the other fabulous, modern dollhouses

"I'd like a reallly large version of that! What a fantastic dollhouse".
"Amazing! i would love one of that to play with my little T. [or by myself
"Wowowowowo. Fantastic! Modern, beautiful details and materials..., love
it. The Dutch are so good in design! ;-)".
"The villa is a big success!!
Our daughter was given it for her 3rd
birthday. At her birthday
party I think every mom asked me
about the villa. We are also now
the favourite house for play
dates as all the girls want to
come over and play with the
The villa is an amazing dolls house and
we are very happy with it. Our
daughter can play with it for
hours [meaning I can get some
work done]. We were also very
impressed with the quality [when
we were assembling it]. It was a
whole evening's work, but fun and
I think the villas should be
seen as much as possible. As I
said all the moms who have seen
it, love it. Stores could have
the villa with a clear
advertisement of what it is.
I know that I often go to a
well-known quality shop in
Amsterdam-south for children's
clothes. Liz plays with the
dolls villa there so I can take my
time and look around. She
doesn't want to leave the store
because she wants to play longer.
I therefore spend more time in
the shop and eventually buy
something I wasn't planning to
just because my child was
happily playing and I had the
time to look around. You benefit
because I - like other people -
fall in love with the dolls
villa. But having said this, the
villa is an upper segment
product, so its budget is for a
select group of clientele.
Thank you again for the good
service and fantastic product. I
think this dolls villa will stay
with us for many many years, if
not want to buy plastic dolls' furniture for my children. What
a relief that a product like this has finally been designed
and made available on
the market! My two sons and daughter spend many hours playing with
the dolls villa. The recreation space, at the bottom of the villa, doubles
as a garage for cars and lorries."

UNBELIEVABLY, THE VILLA HAS MORE...
"When we were little girls, we
would dream of having a lovely
doll's house. Liliane thinks bigger:
she has come up with and made a huge
dolls villa. You really have to see
it! The villa has even more rooms
and furniture than our own house! In
one word: fan-tas-tic! As many as 30
dolls can live in this sturdy,
timber villa, and as many as six
children can easily play with it for
hours. And because our children play
with the villa,
can provide sponsor support to
women's shelters in the Netherlands.
Ah yes, now we big girls have great
dreams of a dolls' villa..."
Vervoorn, editor-in-chief of Kidzlifestyle: "As a
mother and a products scout, I have seen many beautiful
doll's houses. But when I first saw the
dolls' villa, words simply failed me. It's just so
stunning, so solid, so stylish. And so beautifully
conceived. It comes as no surprise that it is also the
winner of the National Award for Innovative Design. The
size of the villa, as well as the beautifully finished
spaces in the house really stimulate children - boys as
well as girls - between the ages of 3 and 10 years old
to play together and have fun. After all, there's
nothing more inspiring than the recreation of 'everyday

TOLL. Here we find an extraordinary,
absolutely fantastic dolls' house. The superlatives
apply: durable, extremely stable, versatile, flexible, as well as very practical. The villa is 120
cm wide, 60 cm deep and 124 cm high and is placed on
four strong wheels with foot brakes, which enable the
playhouse to be relocated quickly. Thus the play house
can be moved rapidly.
Children can play at the same time
on all 4 sides. The basic material is durable plywood
and the roof is made of perforated stainless steel.
This gives this dolls villa a modern and
timeless character. The separate components are numerous and
are part of the complete villa, from the furniture
to the kitchen to the splendid spiral stairs. The
bathroom and kitchen units have perfect sinks and taps. The wardrobes have
real mirrors and so much more. The three beds are supplied with bed linen. The playhouse can be used by dolls up
30 cm in height".
