A dollhouse is simply not complete until it is filled with dolls. As with the house itself, there are numerous options you can choose from when looking at dollhouse dolls. But before you can get into the specifics, it is important you understand the basics of these dolls.
The first thing you need to know is that most dolls go by the 1/12 scale just like everything else in a dollhouse らぶどーる . Although antique dolls varied between 4 and 8 inches tall, most dollhouse dolls today are according to the average human. Child dolls typically run around 4 inches while men are 6 inches and women are 4 ½ inches.
Over time these dolls have been created using a wide array of different kinds of material. Some of the many kinds of material include wood, wax, china, hard plastic, cloth and vinyl. As with all of the furniture and little things within the home, what dolls are made of and what they possess becomes another part of the collecting process.
Something that was troubling for many collectors was the fact that almost all dollhouse dolls were unmarked. Many collectors like to know the identity of the doll and where it originated from. Fortunately, vinyl and plastic dolls began to have the marker’s name stamped on the back. Despite this, most clothing is sewn on making it virtually impossible to find marks unless you want to cut the clothes off, which is highly unlikely if you are a collector.
The last thing that many are curious about is the overall price you must pay for these dolls. As with everything in life, you get what you pay for. Collectors can expect to pay between $200 to $600 for a quality doll that comes with glass eyes and original clothing. You can find dolls in rare condition for far more or vinyl dolls that kids can play with for no more than a few dollars.
