Lady reunited with her childhood dolls’ house after 60 years!

April 26th, 2014

Some dolls’ house tales are too good to be true – but this one’s astonishingly good!

It is the story of an elderly lady who has been reunited with her childhood toy over 60 years since she gave it away.

Gladys Grimshaw, from Hindley, spotted it in a Leigh charity shop and frog-marched her nephew back there to snap it up!

The lure of miniatures once again proved too strong to resist.

The 78-year-old told the Bolton News: “I was bought the dolls’ house when I was three or four and had it for years until it was passed on to younger family members.

“I couldn’t believe it was just there in the window. I didn’t buy it at first and went home but I couldn’t stop thinking about it and had to go back and get it.”

It was understandably a little more dilapidated then when she last saw it, with a broken roof and some missing parts from inside. But it is happily now restored.
