The Lucky Dollhouse Winner!

Back in March we blogged about a contest that My Doll’s House in Torrance, CA was having. To celebrate their 20th anniversary, Marj DeKoster, the owner of My Doll’s House, decided to have a drawing for a finished Real Good Toys Limited Edition Colonial Dollhouse. Recently they had the drawing and the lucky winner was Fay K. from Kingman, AZ.  If you think Fay looks happy, you would be right. Marj told us she was ecstatic! Fay drives from Kingman, AZ to Torrance, CA once a month to shop at My Doll’s House…a 6 hour drive one way! Congratulations to Fay for winning the dollhouse. Now she will have to shop for miniatures to fill it. Congratulations to Marj and My Doll’s House for 20 years of providing amazing service, guidance and knowledge to miniaturists of all abilities and ages.  The dollhouse and miniature industry appreciates and values your hard work!

Real Good Toys Dollhouse in the Movies Again!

Tuesday, August 17th, 2010

Has anybody seen the movie “Inception” with Leonardo DiCaprio?  If so, you may have recognized the dollhouse, which was shown as a main prop of the movie.  Real Good Toys Front-Opening Country Victorian dollhouse kit was built and painted in a beautiful burgundy.  The dollhouse was a key element of this movie and  I would love to tell you more…but I can’t ruin it for anybody who hasn’t seen it yet.

“Inception” is Christopher Nolan’s latest narrative about an espionage expert who taps into people’s dreams and steals their secrets.

If you’ve seen the movie, let us know your thoughts!  We’d love to hear what you think about the movie and our featured dollhouse.
