Our Children’s Gorilla has a handful of products but they are all amazingly stylish. Their A-frame modern doll house is no exception and I’ve added it to the dollhouse guide on buymoderntoys. Its simple design is ready to be filled with imagination.

What is more classic and familiar than the book “Goodnight Moon”?
It was my inspiration for this super colorful modern nursery. First I searched to find if there was anything out there similar to what I was setting out to do. I didn’t find any “real” rooms based on this theme. but apparently there is a children’s museum (in California?) that has a version of the room to play in. It looks like soo much fun…
For my modern nursery version of the room, paint the walls green (or not), get some green and yellow striped curtains and if you’re really brave, paint the trim red. I was excited to find that using this rainbow color palette actually resulted in a fresh looking room.

When I was in Middle School, I went to the house of a friend who had a dollhouse in her room that was a miniature (though huge) version of the house in which she lived (which was also huge). I was not allowed to touch her prized possession and thought it was really lame that we couldn’t play with it.
Fortunately nowadays there are many dollhouse options that are ready to play with. Some of these new houses even include fun and fancy features like built in lighting.
I discovered Hape’s newest creation, the Bamboo sunshine dollhouse and immediately added it to buymoderntoys. Then I couldn’t help think that it looks like a cross between the Green Dollhouse and the Contemporary Dollhouse from Plan Toys.
I am not here to judge. I would be happy with any of them. We happen to have the Plan Toys Contemporary Doll House but these newfangled “eco” or “green” dollhouses are really cool ideas and add a new educational dimension to the type of play done in these houses.
Hape’s Bamboo Sunshine Dollhouse is made with 95% sustainable bamboo, has fully operational solar panels, and the panels charge batteries that power LED lights in the house. The house retails for $500.
You can pick it up through my Amazon Affliate link for $400. Bamboo Sunshine Eco-Friendly Dollhouse:
The Green Dollhouse from Plan Toys has (non-functioning) solar panels, a wind turbine, a rain barrel and a recycling center. The dollhouse retails for $240 with furniture, plus about another $20 for a Plan Toys family. You can pick it up through my Amazon Affliate link for $183.58. Plan Toys The Green Dollhouse with Furniture:
I had been waiting to add this to buymoderntoys until I could find it available for sale in the US. Thanks to a tweet today from minor_details I discovered it is available at Unica Home (one of my affiliates).
The doll house from Playsam was designed by Eva Schildt and retails for $110.
