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.

Museum of Miniatures: CBS explores the Dollhouse World

Earliest Dollhouse - Museum of the City of New York

I found an old handwritten note the other day about a great news broadcast about dollhouses and miniatures.  “A World Of Dollhouses” was aired on CBS Sunday Morning in December, 2007.

In the video, Rita Braver takes a tour through the tiny world of doll houses. Some of the displayed models were built from Real Good Toys dollhouse kits! The video also highlights some phenomenal miniature collections from Ginger Landon Siegal’s collection and the Museum of the City of New York dollhouses.

Many adults may consider dollhouses mere child’s play, but doll house collecting is now a lucrative business.  You can read the full article, “It’s A Small World After All,” which goes more in depth into the subject.

I hope you enjoyed the show and the article.  Please add your comments for others to enjoy.

Do not miss this amazing dollhouse video!

I was delighted to find this wonderful YouTube video on my facebook page today. It features the Great American Dollhouse Museum and showcases a brilliant collection of historical, contemporary and fantasy miniatures and dollhouses. Of course it was wonderful to see so many beautiful Real Good Toys dollhouses were on display. It’s truly AMAZING!

Have a good day.  Chris
