Object Of My Affection: Ultra Modern Dollhouse By Brinca Dada
Kids these days â€“ they really have to stop reading dwell magazine at story time.
When I was a wee sprout, my dolls lived in proper, old-fashioned Victorian dollhouses. But the uppity dolls of today arenâ€™t happy with a little window lattice and leering butler. Oh, no, they need to be all modern and chic.
New York-based company Brinca Dada is here to rescue the aesthetic sensibilities of 3-year-olds everywhere (you know, the ones refusing to put up with the plastic atrocities found at Toys R Us).
Bennett House â€“ a townhouse thatâ€™s â€œheavily influenced by the De Stijl movement of the early 20th century,â€ according to company website â€“ features a two-story living room, elevator and rooftop pool (naturally).
It also boasts solar-powered LED lights, and the whole thing is made of CARB-certified woods and non-toxic, lead-free paints and stains â€“ so itâ€™s environmentally friendly and wonâ€™t poison your child if she decides to lick it.
If this $599 dollhouse is too steep for your budget, stay put â€™til July. Thatâ€™s when Dylan House, a simpler piece of real estate, goes up for sale. Asking price? A relative steal at $149.
