Doll Houses on the go!


My daughters love playing with their doll house. They will literally spend hours playing with it. No, I’m not complaining! The problem, however, is that when we travel we can’t take their beloved doll house with us. I let them bring a few of their small dolls but then I get the questions: “But mom, where will our dolls sleep? Play? Eat their dinner?”

The Doll House Building Blocks from Babalu, Inc. and WJ Fantasy have solved our problem! The ten boxes stack on top of each other to create a Victorian-style doll house that you can play with at home or take with you!!!


Each of the ten blocks are individually illustrated to create ten different rooms: living room, dining room, library, kitchen, playroom, bathroom, child’s room, bedroom, sewing room, and attic. The blocks can also be stacked one onto of another to create a 10-story house, as the outside of each block is decorated as the exterior of a house.

My girls love stacking the blocks in different ways to create new houses. They split the blocks up between each other to create two separate houses. And they love discovering new things about the intricately detailed interiors.

The best part for me, as a mom…the blocks neatly pack away one inside another for a compact, easy to store and travel with, 6″ x 6″ x 6″ box!!! The Doll House Building Blocks will definitely be coming with us when we travel to grandma and grandpa’s house this Christmas!

WJ Fantasy offers a variety of other Building Blocks, including a Castle, Big City, Country Farm Touch & Feel, Do-Re-Mi Musical Blocks, ABCs, and much more! You can also find some great toys, games and books at WJ Fantasy, as well as some holiday products!

If you are looking for even more affordable and portable fun this holiday season, check out Babalu’s Felt Story Boards and other great educational products! These classic felt boards come in a variety of different scenes, allowing your child to use their imagination as they come up with story after story after story! My daughter already has Felt Tales – Pretty Princess and Felt Tales – Let’s Go to the Ballet on her Christmas Wish List!!!

    These are so cute! I love all of the different sets they have. I have already sent this to several people. Thanks for the great ideas!!

  2. Jessica says

    My daughter loves playing with the building blocks and my mother’s house. These are great that they form a doll house too.

  3. says

    This would be wonderful for my daughter! She wants a doll house, but our house is so small that it would be tough to have a typical one-this would be great!

  4. says

    Oh WOW this is such a great idea! I think it’s good not only for travel but for families with limited space. What cool way to get a doll house that can be easily stored. My daughter would LOVE this! Thanks for the chance to win, I’ve got your button on my sidebar!

  5. says

    These are SO adorable! My daughter is just becoming interested in blocks and I’m hoping to get her a set for Christmas. I have your button in my sidebar. :-)

    This is awesome, I’ve never seen anything like this before. My daughter has a ver tiny room and up til now we’ve not allowed her to have a doll house. No room for it. But this one would be perfect. Enter me in on this one…

  8. Marcia says

    My two granddaughters would love this prize and I think I would keep it here at my house so when they visit, alone or together, we could have some ‘sprawl out on the rug’ fun.

  9. Heather N says

    Thank you for all these chances at great prizes! These giveaways are sure to help all the winners with their xmas shopping or bdays etc. Thank you and best of luck to everyone!

    My daughter would use her Lil Pet shops and polly’s in these building doll houses! I can see it now! LOL

  10. Eileen says

    Yay…something new I can have here for the little ones when they come. We have such a small house and these look like they take such little space and PORTABLE…I can see Alli playing on a blanket outside with these this summer!!

    Just came across this site – think I may be too late to enter :-( but I love this and thought it would be worth a try to see if I could still get into the give-a-way.
