Welcome to new Real Good Toys dollhouse retailers

Friday, April 22nd, 2011

Throughout the year Real Good Toys is happy to welcome new customers to our family of store front retailers. Sometimes these new customers are brand new stores that have just opened their doors to the world of dollhouses. More often, our new customers are established hobby or craft stores looking to expand their inventory into dollhouses and miniatures. Some retailers are already carrying dollhouses in their stores, but are looking to offer Real Good Toys dollhouses as another option for their customers. Whichever way these stores come to us, we welcome them. It’s important that we take a moment to introduce everyone to these great stores and recognize what they have to offer. If you happen to find yourself in their area, stop by and say hi. Ask them about their Real Good Toys dollhouses.

What’s New In Miniatures

Friday, April 15th, 2011

News Flash…Suzanne Schwab from Suzannes Dollhouses & Miniatures in O’Fallon, MO is designing and manufacturing her own firehouse furnishings!

Firehouse Furniture by Suzannes Dollhouses & Miniatures

Over the years Suzanne has been very successful at building and donating the Real Good Toys QuickBuild™ Firehouse to organizations in her area. She has helped raise thousands of dollars for some great causes. Suzanne found that there just wasn’t a good source for furniture that fit with the firehouse theme. What to do? She made it herself, of course!

Suzanne started this creative venture with a dalmation themed bed, a coat rack and lamps that range in price from $6.99 to $29.99.  They are all adorable and perfect for our Quickbuild™ Firehouse as well as a boys’ room in any dollhouse. So far, Suzanne says sales have been brisk. Best of all…they are made in the USA. For more information, give Suzanne a call at 636-978-6501 or check her website at www.suzannesdollhouses.com.

Kudos to Suzanne for her hard work and ingenuity.  Keep it up. You’re an inspiration to all miniaturists!
