In the Netherlands




The original, handmade DollsVilla by Liliane® from 1997/1998, a design by Liliane Limpens, becomes part of the permanent museum collection of the fairy-tale Museum Children's World [1969] in Roden, near Groningen in the north of the Netherlands. The museum has an impressive collection of old dolls and bears. Children can actively play [together] in the museum café with a second one, a new DollsVilla from the 2019 production series.


Museum curator Mara Bosboom: "This way the children can see the development of a prototype into its final market shape."


In 1969 the Dutch Museum Children's World Foundation in Roden was founded by the Association for Tourist Traffic and the Association of Folk Entertainment. At the same time, in this year an appeal was made via the ANP to the Dutch population to look at toys from the past in the attic. This call was met with mass response and it was the start of a unique collection. Two foundations currently manage the Children's World Toy Museum: Dutch Museum Children's World Foundation and Foundation for preserving the Museum Children's World Collection.


Children's World Museum offers guided tours, a senior package, a package for children's parties and school trips. Teaching material will soon be available, which will enable primary schools to achieve official learning objectives.

Fathers Magazine, Italy Spring 2019
A creative collaborative blog and magazine for the modern dad



Paola Noé: “I think that Unduetrestella had the honour to present for the first time some design products that can be considered as “masterpieces” of contemporary design for kids. I’m totally fascinated by the three: Max in the BOX by Perlude and the furniture by EcoBirdy or the DollsVilla by Liliane®.”



Paola Noé has been an art critic, a curator and has worked in the editorial office of the prestigious “Flash Art” magazine. In 2008 she started to run Unduetrestella, a special contemporary art project for children. Today, the children’s universe is her hobbyhorse. She looks for the most interesting phenomena for kids – from art and design to vintage objects and even food and then exhibits them during the most important and unmissable international design sector event, a showcase for creativity, innovation and quality: Milano Design Week - by Aleksandra Leszcyńska.

Entry to the Canadian market






Mission success in Canada! Purchase of the Dolls Villa by the famous [research] Hospital for Sick Children Toronto. Various pediatric departments will use the villa professionally, including Child Life / Creative Arts Therapy.


"Great success for Starters International Business participant DollsVilla Global BV, the Dutch Life Sciences & Health organisation enters the Canadian market as a result of the programme!" - Task Force Health Care.


‘DollsVilla is the exclusive domain of children and they alone determine its norms and values, its rules of conduct, and its viewpoints and freedoms. Adults have no authority and are granted access solely by invitation. Instead of being focused on the world of adults, the villa shifts the child’s attention to her or his own life, which is precisely where it should be.’ - Liliane


'When it comes to size, age, and impact, the Toronto-based Hospital for Sick Children, branded as SickKids, is a strong contender for one of the best pediatric hospitals in the world. In addition to being a teaching hospital affiliated with the University of Toronto. This technologically advanced children's hospital has been at the forefront of healthcare research for well over a century.' - Iris Stone

unduetreSTELLA art and design for kids

Press release:

Like every unduetrestella DESIGN WEEK edition, Liliane Limpens, the designer of DollsVilla by Liliane (NL), who creates two innovative models of a dollshouse on wheels, made of sustainable materials, full of every comfort, even the car ramp, like real toy furniture full of accessories.

Al Via la design week: ecco tutte le mete perfette per la famiglia



Milano durante la Design Week diventa un vero e proprio concentrato di creatività e colore, un grande palcoscenico dove arte, design e performance si incontrano. Tutto questo da domani fino al 14 aprile, giorni in cui la città ospita il meglio del design internazionale con il Salone del Mobile e il Fuori Salone: un’occasione unica non solo per gli addetti ai lavori, ma anche per tutta la famiglia, grazie a un calendario fittissimo di mostre, installazioni, percorsi ed eventi capaci di accendere la curiosità e l’immaginazione in grandi e bambini.


Alla Fabbrica del Vapore Unduetrestella Design Week celebra Leonardo da Vinci

Diventata punto di riferimento per il design dedicato all’infanzia Paola Noé quest’anno ci stupisce con un progetto tutto legato al 500° anniversario di Leonardo da Vinci, un percorso che risponde perfettamente al claim Hallo Leo! Artista, pittore, matematico, scienziato, Leonardo è infatti considerato il più grande genio di tutti i tempi e a questa multiforme creatività unduetrestella DESIGN WEEK ha dedicato la sua bellissima esposizione, nel grande Spazio Messina 2 all’interno della Fabbrica del Vapore.


“Ma ci piace pensare a Leonardo come il primo designer della storia, capace di coniugare creatività e funzionalità, bellezza e risoluzione pratica dei problemi, desiderio di superare i limiti e capacità di rimanere con i piedi per terra. Anche dopo aver volato. Leonardo ha costruito anche macchine terribili di guerra, eppure i suoi modellini oggi assomigliano a giocattoli, i suoi studi sulle ali e sugli animali hanno la poesia di un’illustrazione per bambini“. E sulla scorta di questo pensiero, Paola Noé ha realizzato un percorso tra estetica e funzionalità, con più di 40 brand e pezzi di design provenienti da tutto il mondo.

Made With Respect - Auckland New Zealand




Another MWR Girlboss, Liliane Limpens © Designer of the DollsVilla by Liliane® shares her inspiration for taking her passion to protect the planet into her business.


"We must learn to be protectors of nature and appreciate everything that it provides us. It is important for young children to be around natural materials, to be able to touch, feel, smell and interact with their unblemished nature."


"I am passionate about introducing children to the wonders of wood through play as this interaction contributes to an awareness of sustainability at a young age. Children are capable of developing a real connection with the products of this earth and we need to encourage that as much as possible for our Planet to thrive."


The DollsVilla by Liliane is a sustainable dolls house, built at a child's height. Made of FSC birch plywood, beech and stainless steel. FSC standards have been developed to protect the forests' biodiversity and ecological processes.

The proceeds of the High Trap bicycle tour by Kiwanis Young Professionals Alblasserwaard Drechtsteden [KYPAD] is spent on the purchase of DollsVilla by Liliane® for the Sliedrechtse Family House De Veilige Haven. Motto of KYPAD: Serving the Children of the World: Fun, Friendship and Fundraising.


"The family house is a family house for children between 8 and 15 years old, who can not live at home for various reasons. Family parent Wendy Oward offers these children a stable basis for optimal development and for processing the traumas of the past. In the shelter, normal life is emphasized as much as possible. There is a permanent professional educator instead of a changing group management, in order to guarantee the safety and continuity for the children. The upbringing is tailored to the needs of each individual child in relation to the diversity of problems." By Elise de Haas-Kornet.


"The DollsVilla by Liliane® is absolutely of added value for out-of-home children in a family home. It contributes to the processing of traumatic experiences, because interplay with the DollsVilla keeps the direct confrontation at a distance. By applying the newly learned skills in the family home it helps to solve conflicts and to promote contact with peers. In addition, it enriches their play by stimulating imagination and creativity. The DollsVilla also contributes to a warmer living atmosphere and stimulates a sense of self-worth among the children." By Suzanne Heikoop, photographer.
