Announcement   Welcome! I make playscale ( 1:6 scale ) working dollhouse lights and home decor items for fashion dolls such as Barbie, Monster High, Blythe, Momoko, Pullip, BJD's, and others. I will take custom orders, so feel free to contact me.

Although we now make a variety of items, our specialty is still the lighting. These work great in a dollhouse or diorama. All lights use warm white LED's and are battery powered so there is no need to worry about hooking up electricity. Just add a battery and you are good to go. There is a cord that runs to the battery, but we like the realism this provides.

All the lights are OOAK, handmade artisan items of my own design. I gather inspiration from real lighting collections, and put my own spin on them so the outcome is always unique.

Please remember these are one-of-a-kind, handmade items and therefore not factory perfection. There will be small imperfections, but we feel this adds to the authenticity and charm!

Also, these items are intended for mature collectors or older children. Due to their delicate and electrical nature we do NOT recommend them for small children. Please use your discretion.

Take a look around and I hope you like what you see. Feel free to contact me with questions or comments. If you would like to see a specific design, or different battery option, let me know and I will be happy to see what I can do.

***More about the LED's we use***

The bulbs are state-of-the-art warm white LED's, rated for 100,000 hours of operation. These are not the cold, blue LED's from a few years ago. They are brighter than an old-fashioned incandescent, but they still cast a warm glow.

The LED's we use can only work with a 3 volt or 9 volt battery, if you hook them to a regular 12 volt dollhouse system they will burn up.

Shades and bulbs are not removable. Batteries not included. Made in a smoke-free home.

Thanks!

About

A Tendency to Go Overboard

I admit it, I have a tendency to go overboard on my projects. I wanted to build a dollhouse for my daughter in playscale. Not having enough money to buy a kit, I grabbed some scrap and went to the local DIY big box store for whatever I didn't already have laying around.

Here comes the overboard: then, I wanted working lights for the house. I wired it up while building it, just like a real house. However, imagine my surprise when several attempts to search the Internet revealed almost no working lights in playscale (Barbie Doll scale)! So, I had to make them myself. I liked the results, my husband was actually impressed (after helping me with the electrical), and my daughter was ecstatic. (Needless to say, the switches have been very thoroughly tested - onoff onoff onoff etc.).

Then I thought, why not see if others are interested? A search for the best online marketplaces catering to craftspeople led to Etsy, and here I am. Best advice: do not be afraid to try, and do not be afraid to fail. You never know until you try, and failure is just the next step toward success.

    I trained as an artist in 2D and 3D media during college. Then I applied the knowledge to web design and development at my job. Now, nearly 20 years later, I am moving into the world of crafts which I and my daughter thoroughly enjoy!

Welcome to our shop! I started this mad idea when I tried to find working playscale (1:6 scale) lighting for the Barbie/Monster High dollhouse I built for my daughter. Not being able to find any (or hardly any) working lights in that scale, my husband and I decided to make them ourselves. Now we would like to offer them to you.

Where possible we use up-cycled items, such as small candlesticks and the copper stripped out of old house wiring (there is something poetic about that one), as decorative components. However all electrical components, such as wiring, are new.

I hope you enjoy them as much as my family does!
