Holy Cow, Bozart Kaleidoscope Dollhouse, Still In The Box

Even though I was never a diehard fan of Bozart's Kaleidoscope House, it always felt like the one that got away. I knew one of the investors behind Bozart from Philadelphia. A bunch of art world people I knew bought it for their kids, their grandkids, and their nieces and nephews. I saw it for sale in the MoMA store. Too bad the art museum trustee market wasn't big enough to support what was a truly inspiring venture. It was the Creative Playthings of the late 1990's.

If only an artist I followed a little more closely than Laurie Simmons had made it, I would've bought a couple just to have. And they'd be sitting in the art storage space, just waiting for the day I stumble across a never-before-assembled Kaleidoscope House on eBay, which is at almost $1,600 with just under 10 hours to go.

For a playable model, there's always this one, which comes with a few pieces of furniture and some dolls, even [and which, for the record, is neither Eames Era nor mid-century]. It's running "only" $385 right now.

Wow, I am shocked at how hideous the packaging design is for such an iconic toy...

[no kidding. I doubt many boxes that ugly got saved at all -ed.]

Hi, Love this dolls house never seen it before (live in the UK) - do you know when they closed down and how much it used to cost when on sale at MoMA store? and if anyone else is planning to sell this dolls house again?

Regards Anna

A dad's got one in perfect condition:

I have to agree with the comment about the box, tho. Kinda ugly.

I have a NIB one. Curious about how much it's worth...

[then put it on eBay and let it ride. This is probably the best 4 wks of the year to sell it. -ed.]

I have now decided after much deliberation to sell my Bozart Kaleidoscope Dolls House. I live in the UK. This is fully assembled so would need to be collected - I do have the original boxes for it (outer and inner).

I have 12 doll houses in the boxes for sale.

Have you sold all the doll houses, all 12 of them?
I am interested in one if you still have any.
Thanks Kathy

I have a deadstock (totally unopened, brand new) one of these in its original box. It is even still in its original Bozart shipping box! I have a number of playsets as well. All unopened.

Hi Jody,

Thanks for your reply. I'm interesting in the house and the grand piano furniture. Can you please e-mail me the price for both items?

Hi Jody,

Simply wondering whether you might still have a Bozart Kaleidoscope House available for purchase? I am interested in getting one as a gift for my father. If so, I'd love to discuss additional info - such as price, etc. - via email.

Thanks for your help!

I have a NIB Bozart Kaleidoscope dollhouse (it was purchased for my daughter but never assembled or used)--i think we took the cover off the box once, took a piece or two out of a bag, and then put them back in the bag and closed the box. Would be interested in selling it to someone who would enjoy and appreciate it. You can contact me at: liz_forman@yahoo.com, if you like. Best: Liz

I have a Bozart house for sale. It was set up three times, once before I had kids and twice after for a day or two and then went back in the box. I also have all the furniture sets and a set of people. If interested, you can email me at girrllie@yahoo.com
