Could somebody PLEASE tell me where this year has disappeared to?
I realise that after all last year’s fuss about the Lundby Dollshouse, I never, ever showed you around. For all mothers of small girls out there, I can confirm that no toy of
mine the Minx’s has ever been played with quite as much as this one.
Friends, even boys, other parents and babysitters are all fascinated by the resolutely unchildlike nature of it all and the stunning attention to detail. The Minx plays with it even more now than she did a year ago and every time I go into her playroom I find that the dolls have been arranged into yet another vignette.
This year Santa is going to have no trouble at all as the Minx has given him firm instructions to get her the accompanying Gotland Summer House. It’s available quite cheaply in the UK from Amazon (the Husband brought it back with him after his recent trip) and unfortunately more expensively in the US at Cheeky Monkeys. I don’t know why Lundby doesn’t distribute more widely in the US.
But I digress.
This year, after much hunting online, I managed to track down a Lundby Dollhouse Advent Calendar. They were made in 2007, so difficult to get now, but still on sale at Cheeky Monkeys. It promises clothes, accessories and Christmas decorations for the Lundby family and the Minx and I were beside ourselves with excitement to open door number one this morning.
I thought it might be fun for you guys to see what’s inside, and show you round the house at the same time.
we she got a small wall clock, which has been (somewhat wonkily) applied to the wall of the main bedroom by the Minx.
