Colonial Style Doll House (1937)

Brand new in 1937 was a 63-piece, 7-room, 29 1/2 inch Colonial Type doll house. It sold for $1.25.

For the first time, a 29 1/2 inch doll house of heavy wood pulp board (stronger and more rigid than cardboard) for less than $1.50. New lock and tuck feature made it easy to assemble. No cutting, pasting, nails or screws were needed.

It’s the house every little girl dreamed of owning!

It measures out at 29 1/2 x 16 x 16 inches with the quaintest front entrance and front porch off the sun parlor (both with doors) and offset kitchen at the other end — an entirely new design. Tile effect roof, stone trim, attractive green shutters and flower pots were printed on the windows. It also had a stairway and fireplace on the inside.

There were rugs in every room, just like home, 7 rooms completely furnished with bright colored furniture, 4-pc living suite, 3/1 inch long settee, 6-piece dining rooms, 6-piece kitchen, (2) 5-piece bedrooms, 3-piece sun parlor, 4-piece bathroom. The house includes 28 others pieces including lamp, pictures, shrubs and more.
