CP^2: Old Minimalist Dollhouses On eBay

Not sure if this is a sign that the doll real estate market is softening, but two fully furnished classic modernist dollhouses just went up on eBay.

The big Creative Playthings house above is like an analog version of The Sims. If Bloom Baby has its way, we'll soon be saying this hinged-wall dollhouse folds flat "like an Alma Cradle."

Too McMansion-y? Looking for something smaller? Check out this modernist play bungalow by Community Playthings. What it lacks in size, it makes up for in materials [solid maple, baby]. Plus, somehow, they knew to include an authentic entertainment center with a vintage flatscreen TV.

I bought the same blue CP dollhouse earlier this year, unfortunately without the furnishings. It is fantastic but heavy, and fairly long when folded. A great, simple and flexible design.
