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 phases emerge.

"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 dolls villa. 

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 impressive.

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 generations."

 
 
     
     
     
 
 
 
 

A MOTHER

 

Marlou Dreesen: "I did 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."

 
 
     
     
     
 

 
 
 
 
DE BIJENKORF AMSTERDAM  

Hennie de Wit, Children’s World category manager at the department stores: "The LILIANE dolls villa is perfect for our new Children’s World concept that we are setting up in our chain stores. Not only as an item to sell, but also as a gimmick in our children’s wear departments. We believe your product will contribute to the image we want to create for these departments".

 
 
     
     
     
 

 
 
 
NATIONAL AWARD FOR INNOVATIVE PRODUCTS  

The LILIANE dolls villa was the winner of the Dutch National Award for Innovative Designs. It was the first time in the 30 years of the Dutch Trade Mart that a toy had been awarded this prize.

 
 
     
     
     
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

UNBELIEVABLY, THE VILLA HAS MORE...

 

Founders Flavourites: "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, LILIANE can provide sponsor support to women's shelters in the Netherlands. Ah yes, now we big girls have great dreams of a dolls' villa..."

 
 
     
     
     
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

EVERYDAY LIFE

 

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 LILIANE 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 life'."

 
 
     
     
     
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

BABYGADGET BRAZIL contemporary finds for modern tots

 

"You know how it is, sometimes you're house-hunting, and however strict your budget, it just goes out the window when you see your dream property. Beware, then of the same phenomenon as it applies to dolls' houses. You may start browsing with a firm figure in mind, but when you see what is available at the top of the range, all that is forgotten.

Take the LILIANE dolls villa. The price is approximately ten times what you might expect to pay for such a thing. But take a look at it. It's huge. It's crafted from good-quality wood, by a respected designer. It comes with good intentions about being just as suitable for boys as girls [so, if you have one of each, you get double the use out of it...].

Well, the fact is that most of us will look at it, see the price, and move on, reluctantly or otherwise. But if you could stretch to this sort of money for a toy, the chances are, you just might."

 
 
     
     
     
 

 
 
 
 
 
UP GRADING  

Sterre en Tijl exclusive children's stores: "You won't believe the response we get to the LILIANE dolls villa, it's overwhelming! What's more, this product attracts a whole new clientele. Putting a LILIANE dolls villa in a store upgrades the entire range of products. This product alone is enough to lend the entire store a high-quality feel. The LILIANE dolls villa is the most beautiful and most sensational toy introduced in recent years."

TARGET GROUP  

De Toermalijn wooden toy shop, Eindhoven: "The LILIANE dolls villa can also be used for traditional dolls and collector's items, such as dolls by Käthe Kruse. By including the villa in the range, the age limit of the target group using wooden toy shops has been extended from approximately 8 to 12 years old."

CHILDREN'S SHOP KINDER RAÜME DÜSSELDORF

 

"TOTAL 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".
