Esther recently posted on Instagram about her sadness in packing up their beloved Plan Toys contemporary dollhouse, and I started thinking about the perfect time to introduce my son to a dollhouse that I have had my eye on for quite some time. The Green Alligator is a local toy shop where I live in Jacksonville, FL, and they carry an amazing selection of Hape toys. I have long been a fan of the Happy Family line from Hape and wanted to highlight their range.
The Happy Family All Season House can be purchased fully furnished ($199) or unfurnished ($129). If you have a smaller space or would like to represent a cozier home, the Happy Villa ($99) would be perfect. The home is made from wood with water-based paints, and features reversible seasonal themes, a solar-paneled roof, six rooms, and moveable stairways. I love the details of the front door mail slot, the balcony, and ceiling lighting fixtures.
Make sure to expand outside with the Playground Set ($40). The puzzle-piece base provides the land for the swing, see-saw, and slide.
The Dining Room ($20) could provide hours of entertainment with all of the miniature place settings and tableware. I am dying to order this myself just to sit next to my computer so I can marvel in the details.
Bedroom sets include the Master Room ($20) and a Children’s Room ($20). Keep your Happy Family fed by including the Kitchen Set ($20) and the Patio Set ($20) with the outdoor grill. The pots and pans, mixer, and tiny dish towel all kill me with cuteness.
There are many more sets and figures to add-on for your Happy Family, but Hape doesn’t stop there with imaginative playsets. Every time I stop by our local shop, I am entranced by the Meine Kleine Welt (My Little World) farm, home, and play worlds. Check out the video below for a peek!
