Default The Toll House

Evening all,

This may have been asked before but.....does anyone know where I can/if I can buy the Dolls House Emporium Toll House kit. My mum loves it and I would love to be able to find somewhere or someone who has this kit that no longer wants it.

Please note it is the kit I am looking for not the built up house.

If anyone can help I would be so grateful

Sam

Hi Sam,

This is going to be tough. You might find one on ebay.

It's a shame that this kit was axed as it has lots of modifying potential. I think the only way is to build your own.
The hexagonal shape is quite straight forward. Draw a plan on paper first,maybe using paper cut outs as templates when you start marking out onto the building material. You could use foam board for its construction, as material will be easier for you to use than mdf or plywood. I would suggest 2mm grayboard for the roof, covered with card ''tiles''.
If you use timber framing effect, then that will also add some rigidity. Walls can be papered using brick effect papers, or you could use a suitable colour emulsion paint perhaps with an additive like silver sand or wall filler for texture.

Just an idea.

Hi Sam,

I don't know if you have ever seen these kits before. To me they look very very similar to the Toll House.

DIY Handcraft Miniature Project Kit Our Love Fortress Dolls House | eBay

Here are some pictures of my Toll House so you can see how similar they are. I had added the extension room to mine.

Hi - if it's just the Toll House that you have set your heart on, there's one on E-bay at the moment. It's been built and decorated, but it looks like paper only so it shouldn't be too difficult to re-do. Failing that, have you tried ringing dolls house shops, on the off-chance that they still have the kit as old stock? You'll find addresses and telephone numbers of several shops at the back of any of the dolls house monthly magazines. Good luck!

Has anyone tried that “Our Love fortress” kit? It looks like a cross between the Toll House and the Magical Mystery Tower to me... but I especially like the inclusion of a staircase.
I have just seen it on Amazon for £124.
