  DollsVilla by Liliane® to house their most important emotions.  

by Liliane Limpens December 9, 2022




Exhibition of the DollsVilla at the exhibition Playing Architecture - the game for the city in ARCAM, the Architecture Center Amsterdam, from December 10, 2022 to May 28, 2023.


Dollhouses are one of the oldest and best-known types of building games, but the examples in this exhibition transcend outdated paradigms to illustrate aspects of society that aren't represented in traditional dollhouses.


The exhibition raises awareness of the messages and representations contained in architectural games – in a positive and negative sense – and invites you to directly experience their potential through play, including with the DollsVilla by Liliane®.

Silvia Fabro - Italian product & graphic designer:

Quando si dice "amore a prima vista"! Dollsvilla by Liliane® Limpens [When you say "love at first sight"!] Facebook Fabrodesign August 12, 2020.


Hello Liliane, I am a designer, Montessori by vocation and I think your product is beautiful. I saw the Villa in Milan (Fuorisalone). My favorite job is to design for children and your house is a very beautiful message: gender neutrality and much more. It's so nice to see someone pays attention to the details for children's toys.


Thank you Silvia! Children are in the basement of new lifes, that is why investing in them is so fundamental, a person carries the emo-DNA of the base for a lifetime. Gender neutrality, how nice to define this.

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.

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.

"[...] Mentre pensa in grande Liliane che propone una villa su ruote, perfetta per farci giocare bambole e bambolotti."

"[...] While thinking in large Liliane proposing a villa on wheels, perfect for dolls and dolls play."


Dollsvilla per bambole (e bambolotti) su ruole (da UnduetrestellaSTORE, prezzo su richiesta).


Vi siete mai chiesti perché la doll house piacciono tanto ai bambini (ma non solo)? La risposta sta nel loro potere immaginifico e nelle tante storie che tra quelle piccole pareti prendono vita, portandoci altrove per un po’, dentro mondi incantati, per vivere ogni giorno nuove avventure.

Have you ever wondered why children [and not only they] love the dollhouse? The answer lies in their imaginative power and in the many stories that come to life between those small walls, taking us elsewhere for a while, into enchanted worlds, to experience new adventures every day.


Avete presente, ad esempio, la bellissima Stettheimer Doll House dell’artista Carrie Stettheimer, che si trova presso il Museum of the City of New York? Realizzata tra il 1916 e il 1935, questa casa di bambole rappresenta da sola un vero scrigno di storie. E non solo perché si trova in un museo e ogni giorno è attraversata dallo sguardo e dalla memoria di migliaia di visitatori, ma anche perché nelle sue stanze si trovano opere d’arte in miniatura, create appositamente da alcuni famosi artisti del tempo amici di Carrie. Ad esempio Marcel Duchamp e Alexander Archipenko, tanto per citarne due. Se vi capita di visitare quel museo, fermatevi a guardarla bene, perché tra mobili e pareti c’è una bella parte della storia dell’artista. Carrie, infatti, era la sorella di Florine Stettheimer, pittrice eccentrica nella New York di inizio secolo, abituata ad ospitare in casa i personaggi più importanti della cultura del Novecento americano. Ed ecco la magia di questa doll house, che rappresenta un vero tesoro non solo per i bambini, ma anche per qualsiasi adulto che abbia, almeno una volta, sognato di vivere a New York, proprio nel momento in cui questa metropoli conquistava il titolo di capitale del secolo.

Have you seen, for example, the beautiful Stettheimer Doll House by artist Carrie Stettheimer, located at the Museum of the City of New York? Built between 1916 and 1935, this dollhouse is a true treasure trove of stories. And not only because it is located in a museum and every day is crossed by the look and memory of thousands of visitors, but also because in its rooms are miniature works of art, created specifically by some famous artists of the time friends of Carrie. For example, Marcel Duchamp and Alexander Archipenko, just to name two. If you happen to visit that museum, stop and look at it carefully, because there is a good part of the artist's history between furniture and walls. Carrie, in fact, was the sister of Florine Stettheimer, eccentric painter in New York at the beginning of the century, accustomed to hosting at home the most important figures of the twentieth century American culture. And here is the magic of this doll house, which is a real treasure not only for children, but also for any adult who has, at least once, dreamed of living in New York, just when this metropolis conquered the title of capital of the century.


Purtroppo con la Casa di bambole della Stettheimer non si può giocare, ma nessuna paura perché oggi il design si è sbizzarrito e ha dato vita a una nutrita serie di doll house davvero creative… con dettagli così minuziosi che viene subito voglia di aprire la porta ed entrarci. Sedersi a tavola e versarsi una tazza di tè. Come ad esempio la Mini Home o la Big Mini Home disegnata da Eero Aarnio per il brand finlandese Tactic: un set con mobilini e pezzi d’artista (lo riconoscete Puppy, sempre di Eero Aarnio?). Oppure le modernissime villas Miniko, delle vere e proprie case in miniatura, in materiali pregiati e rifinite a mano del marchio polacco Minjio (in Italia le trovate da UnduetrestellaSTORE). La maison francese Encore! punta su componibili da arredare come stanze molto romantiche, abitate da tanti coniglietti in stoffa, mentre pensa in grande Liliane che propone una villa su ruote, perfetta per farci giocare bambole e bambolotti. Se siete di quelli con la testa sempre tra le nuvole, la vostra casa perfetta è la cloud-house di Rock & Pebble, mentre gli amanti del classico stile Liberty potranno trovare ospitalità in una delle deliziose Sylvanian Family.

Unfortunately with the Stettheimer doll's house you can not play, but no fear because today the design has gone wild and gave birth to a large series of really creative doll houses ... with such meticulous details that you immediately want to open the door and go in there. Sit at the table and pour a cup of tea. Such as the Mini Home or the Big Mini Home designed by Eero Aarnio for the Finnish brand Tactic: a set with pieces of furniture and artist's pieces (do you recognize Puppy, also by Eero Aarnio?). Or the modern Miniko villas, real miniature houses, made of fine materials and hand finished by the Polish brand Minjio (in Italy you can find them from UnduetrestellaSTORE). The French fashion house Encore! tip on modular to be furnished as very romantic rooms, inhabited by many bunnies in fabric, while thinking in large Liliane that offers a villa on wheels, perfect for us to play dolls and dolls. If you are one of those with your head always in the clouds, your perfect home is the Rock & Pebble cloud-house, while lovers of the classic Art Nouveau style will find hospitality in one of the delightful Sylvanian Family.

"Siamo felici di vedere ancora una volta le due varianti di dollvillas di DollsVilla by Liliane.
Ci conosciamo da tanti anni. Non ho mai visto una casa di bambole così "giocata" da bambine e bambini. In ogni nostra esposizione era il catalizzatore dei bambini.
Non è soltanto una casa delle bambole. È una risposta intelligente per essere bambini e giocare!
Grazie Style Piccoli, grazie Oriana Picceni, come sempre."

"We are happy to see once again the two dollvillas of DollsVilla by Liliane.
We've known each other for many years. I have never seen a doll house so "played" by little girls and children. In all our expositions it was the catalyst for children. It is not just a dollhouse. It's an intelligent answer to be children and ply!".

Italian publication - Christmas December 2017






The renowned Italian design-lifestyle magazine CASA facile published an editorial about the Dutch design DollsVilla by Liliane®.

The Doll’s House

Doll houses but also mini-kitchens are part of the so-called imitation play. They give children the opportunity to repeat gestures and situations that they have seen in the adult world. In this way they refine their movement skills and their perception of reality, the awareness and the expression of their own emotions. The play makes children aware of their own inner world and of the world around them.

La Casetta delle Bambole

Le casette ma anche le mini cucine fanno parte dei cosiddetti giochi di imitazione. Permettono ai bambini di ripetere gesti e situazioni osservati nella vita degli adulti; In questo modo si affinano la manualità e l ‘osservazione della realtà, La consapenolezza e l’espressione della proprie emozioni. Il gioco rende il bambino consapevole del proprio mondo interiore e di quello esteriore.

Kid's Wear Magazine Italy




The DollsVilla by Liliane® is far more than a simple dollhouse; it has been designed by Dutch designer Liliane Limpens for dolls that are one foot tall, making this house unique in its genre. Liliane created this doll house because there wasn’t a sustainable home for the size of dolls children prefer to play with.


So this one-of-a-kind house on wheels, equipped with furnishings and a car ramp, made from sturdy materials, such as birch plywood, beach wood and stainless steel, come up at child-height.


“Playing with the Villa is playing with wood, I think it is important for children to play with naturals materials”.
The measure and endurance give the relationship between adult and child a kind of equivalence, considered relevant for kid’s growth.


The distinctive open design of the Villa encourages interaction and free play, that’s why Liliane thought that, apart from a family use, it could work into day care centers or primary schools.


It is a mission, she explained, to incite “female entrepreneurs to consider developing physical products, and not just think about providing a service.”


Putting down roots on ethical values this Villa will make children feeling real owners of their space.

The DollsVilla by Liliane® is much more than a normal doll house. The Villa is specially designed for dolls that are one foot tall – children’s favourite dolls – making it unique in the world and popular among children.


The open design of the Villa encourages interaction and free play: up to six children can use it at the same time. Apart from families, the Villa is also a much-loved item at day care centres and primary schools not just in the Netherlands, but across Europe.


Apart from play, there are other interesting applications. Currently universities in the Netherlands and Poland are researching how play therapists, child psychiatrists and psychologists can use the Villa to help children who suffer from trauma.


Designer Liliane Limpens says: “In the words of the Dutch consul-general Guido Tielman in Chongqing, China, the DollsVilla by Liliane® is ‘the Bentley among the world’s dolls houses!’”

The largest of the design doll houses is the DollsVilla by Liliane®, for five to six children, measured 120x62x128 cm, is made of modified birch plywood and stainless steel.


The Dutch designer Liliane Limpens - a former editor of a magazine of art - created the DollsVilla by Liliane®, a home for the children of the children, motivated by giving them a dream haven. It had to be top quality, that it is an exclusive, private domain, just for your favorite dolls, which has its own rules and freedom, explains and adds that the dolls and stuffed animals play an important role in children's learning about attachment and trust.


The DollsVilla by Liliane® (www.liliane.eu) measured 1.20 m high, are made from birch wood and can be moved thanks to the wheels under their base. They come fully furnished and there are two models: one for a group of four to six children and one villa for two to three children.

La diseñadora holandesa Liliane Limpens –ex editora de una revista de arte– creó DollsVilla, “una casa para los niños de los niños”, motivada por darles un refugio soñado. “Tenía que ser de primera calidad, para que fuera un dominio exclusivo, privado, solo para sus muñecas favoritas y donde hubiera sus propias normas y libertades”, explica y agrega que las muñecas y peluches cumplen un papel importante en el aprendizaje de los niños en el apego y la confianza.


Las casas de DollsVilla (www.liliane.eu) miden 1,20 m de alto, están hechas de madera de abedul y se pueden mover gracias a las ruedas que tienen bajo su base. Vienen completamente amobladas y hay dos tamaños: una para un grupo de entre cuatro y seis niños y otra para dos a tres niños.

Bienvenida a casa, muñeca  

„Otro histórico de la arquitectura disponible a pequeña gran escala es Arne Jacobsen. La danesa Minimii ha replicado la casa del arquitecto en Charlottenlund y, cómo no, la silla Cisne. Su intención es que los padres también jueguen con las miniaturas, por eso han lanzado la casa en formato MiiBox, que se cuelga en la pared como un joyero. Otra madre que reaccionó con creatividad ante la falta de oferta de casas hipsters para sus hijos es Liliane Limpens.


„Mientras Minii y Minio están pensadas para las medidas de Barbie y otras fashion dolls, las de Liliane son aptas para muñecas grandes.

Among the world's dolls houses  

Guido Tielman, Dutch consul-general in the economically expanding city of Chongqing [31 million inhabitants], selected LILIANE BV from among approximately 200 Dutch international enterprises as the one with the greatest sales potential in China by far: “I am very impressed by the DollsVilla.” Tielman is sounding out the potential of bringing the DollsVilla by Liliane® to the children of China at the Wereldveroveraars conference for conquerors of the world on 13 May 2014.


Tielman: “The DollsVilla by Liliane® has tremendous sales potential in China. Here’s an anecdote to illustrate this. I live in a hotel in Chongqing. I recently passed by a wedding reception in the hotel. Looking outside, I noticed that there were ten Ferraris at the hotel car park! What I want to say is that there are many people in China nowadays with serious money. My British colleague sells Bentleys and he told me that he sold eighty Bentleys in just four years’ time.”


“This is the Bentley! [pointing to the DollsVilla by Liliane® on the screen in the conference hall] The Dutch DollsVilla is the Bentley among the world’s dolls houses. The Chinese are very status-oriented. If you, as a parent, are able to buy a DollsVilla by Liliane®, you are a good parent.”


“Because of the one-child policy, parents only want the very best for their child. The last [marketing] element is that the Chinese wish to educate their child to the highest possible level and give it the best possible upbringing. Parents are anticipating on the importance of developing a child’s creative potential. The DollsVilla by Liliane® can contribute to this ideal.”

A to Z Designs for Kids & Kidults  

The DollsVilla by Liliane® could be a dream house for children, as well as for adults with an eye for quality.


Measuring 1.28 metres tall on metal castors with brake systems, the three-storey playhouse exhibits meticulous attention to details from its design through to the materials it employs.


Open on four sides with perforated stainless steel roofs, the birch plywood structure reveals a kitchen counter and a catelogue of wood furniture next to functional wall mirror and aluminium utensils in seven rooms connected by two spiral staircases.


The unblemished nature of wood has been consciously retained for a genuine connection between children and products of the earth.


LILIANE BV is a sustainable-living furniture brand for dolls up to 30cm. LILIANE BV's products are built not only for fun but also with educational purpose. Targeting the three to ten age group, they create interaction that stimulates spontaneous practices of social skills. The use of materials also brings in the concept of sustainabillity for the kids at young age. Its value is as well-recognised in the field of child as women psychotherapy in the Netherlands.

Chic Contemporary Doll House


The Dutch DollsVilla by Liliane® Pimps Out Toy Homes! If there was ever a home fit for a doll, it'd have to be the DollsVilla by Liliane® Limpens.


The DollsVilla by Liliane® is a contemporary doll house that looks a lot like the homes most people today would want to live in. The entire model is sustainably built and is constructed mostly from wood that gives it an earthy, organic look. The interior features just about everything a normal home would have such as a sink, beds, bathroom and even a perforated stainless steel roof that brings a nice contrast to the wooden aesthetic. The villa has three floors, each of which have been given its own personality by Limpens.


If there was ever such a thing as comfortable living for toys, this is it.

LILIANE brings the dollhouse to the next level, literally. This gem is designed for 30-centimeter dolls (or dolls that are roughly 1 foot long). It's such a fun idea, and I'm especially fond of all the open space. It's perfect for play.

« TOTAL TOLL. La Villa de Poupées par Liliane® est absolument unique. Durable, stable, mobile, pratique. Pas moins de 4 enfants peuvent s’y amuser en même temps à partir de chacun des côtés. Le matériau dominant, du bois contreplaqué, et le toit en acier inoxydable confèrent à la villa un caractère moderne et intemporel. La villa est entièrement garnie, des meubles à la cuisine en passant par un superbe escalier en colimaçon. Il va bien entendu de soi que l’évier, le lavabo et leurs robinets sont des plus raffinés. L’armoire est équipée d’un véritable miroir et même les lits sont faits. »
