Doll-houses have a long history that spans over three hundred years in the past. Initially doll-houses were not actually used for dolls, they were meant to display interior designs and floor plans for actual buildings, houses and floors, later on they gained their popularity as a favourite children’s plaything and are still quite popular to this day.
Nowadays, doll-houses are actually a much sought after collectable that is hugely popular with adult collectors rather than kids. Collectable value doll-houses are miniature architectural masterpieces with all the features and details of an actual house. Keen collectors are looking for handmade houses that incorporate classic architectural designs of the Victorian or Edwardian era. For children that really want to play with their doll-house, you might want to opt for a plastic version that won’t set you back a small fortune.
In recent years some ultra modern doll-house designs have crept up on the market and they are quite stunning to say the least, they are actual miniature copies of actual architectural designs and existing houses which makes them even more valuable amongst collectors. Most of these doll-houses are handmade and include all the fine details of the house and the surroundings, including gardens and swimming pools.
