Creative Competition 2013 – from The Dolls House Emporium

February 25th, 2013

It’s time to invite inspiration and imagination as The Dolls House Emporium reveals the project for this year’s Creative Competition.

‘The Cabin’ – its first dolls’ house with a wall-mounting option – offers endless possibilities with its characteristic circular windows, arched doorway and exposed rafters.

It’s an affordable small build and is this year supplied with brackets for wall-mounting, which could invite a multitude of amazing ideas. This kit has a completely different feel from anything from our design team in the past, and offers a unique space saving option. Features include circular windows, an arched rooway and exposed rafters.

Of course, it’s not just for entrants to the retailer’s popular annuel contest, which offers up to £600 of kit to the entry judged most creative. Each year hundreds of dolls’ house and miniature makers roll up their sleeves and get to work transforming it for sheer pleasure!

Judges are looking forward to seeing the entries, which are encouraged in the form of photos, video and writing.

To get the creative juices flowing designers at the Ripley HQ have created a cliff-side lookout for the Harbour Master to protect his coastline from the upcoming storm … and a secret resting place hidden in the undergrowth for fairies and magical creatures. Popular themes from previous years and different small projects include a witch’s keep, a cosy log cabin and even an ice cream stall.
