stockist in the US and promote it through
our blogs and social media. We love the
DollsVilla by Liliane®! I think many US customers feel
a lot more comfortable with domestic
shipping. We look forward to introducing
your amazing dollhouse to our audience."
Moon Picnic: "If you're like us, as soon
as you see this your heart will explode with
a child's excitement, however old you are.
Yes, we've finally found our favorite thing
in the toy store (which of course happens to
be the most expensive in there) and our
parents won't get away easily this time as
we hold on to the frame and won't let go!"
"You can easily imagine how
thrilled we are and we can't wait to tell
you all about it!"
"This DollsVilla by Liliane® was designed for large dolls and stuffed animals
(children's children!) and 4-5 children can
play together with enough room for everyone.
In their own safe domain filled with all the
features of modern living and stylish
furniture just like their parents, they
learn about pleasure, attachment and trust. This
is a gift for the whole family and future

"The villa is a big success!!
Our daughter was given it for her 3rd birthday. At her birthday party I
think every mom asked me about the villa. We are also now the favourite
house for play dates as all the girls want to come over and play with
the DollsVilla by Liliane®.
The villa is an amazing dolls
house and we are very happy with it. Our daughter can play with it for
hours [meaning I can get some work done]. We were also very impressed
with the quality [when we were assembling it]. It was a whole evening's
work, but fun and impressive.
I think the villas should be
seen as much as possible. As I said all the moms who have seen it, love
it. Stores could have the villa with a clear advertisement of what it
I know that I often go to a
well-known quality shop in Amsterdam-south for children's clothes. Liz
plays with the DollsVilla by Liliane® there so I can take my time and look around.
She doesn't want to leave the store because she wants to play longer.
I therefore spend more time in
the shop and eventually buy something I wasn't planning to just because
my child was happily playing and I had the time to look around. You
benefit because I - like other people - fall in love with the DollsVilla by Liliane®. But having said this, the villa is an upper segment product, so
its budget is for a select group of clientele.
Thank you again for the good
service and fantastic product. I think this DollsVilla by Liliane® will stay with
us for many many years, if not generations."

Create The Perfect Mood With Accent Colors
THESE COLOR CHOICES ALSO INVITING KIDS
TO COME PLAY
One of the easiest ways to liven up your home is with accent colors and matching
accent decorations. Accent colors are used to help give a room a pop, to blend
the color scheme together, and most importantly, to decide the mood of the
colors is about two things: choosing a mood
that you want to provoke and choosing where
you want the attention of your guests to be
In the above
picture, the homeowners chose red and pink
to give the room a playful and energetic
vibe by picking two pink and red decorative
toys. These color choices enhance the clean
strong lines of the room while also inviting
kids to come play. This type of subtle
invitation can be done with small accent
items such as picture frames and pillows.
A doll house like no other,
the child-size DollsVilla by Liliane® has been designed
by Dutch interior designer Liliane Limpens
to give children a place to get completely
lost in thought and play. More than just a
striking play item for the home though, it’s
proving invaluable in hotels, child care
centres, child psychology clinics and even

real designer home, exposed shelving for
easy play and, believe it or not, a car
ramp. It comes equipped with furniture to

three-year-olds and one for ages four to six.
The house is made from birch plywood, solid
beech wood, stainless steel and plexiglass.
Liliane’s intention with the use of wood was
to help children develop a connection with
the earth, and an early understanding of
sustainability as a concept. She used transparent
varnish to ensure the house’s natural
colouring is a calming addition to any room.
Other than for play, Liliane sees the
DollsVilla by Liliane® as a chance for parents to learn about
their children’s development as they watch
them move about and make up stories based
around the dolls and the house.

but she had special intentions for public
places too. Used in a hotel lobby, it allows
children to play and communicate, regardless
of what language they speak. In child care
centres it encourages group play and in
psychology clinics, it can be (and has been)
used to facilitate contact with children,
make diagnoses and even as a form of
Perhaps its most important use
though, is in emergency shelters where it
contributes to a warmer living atmosphere
for disadvantaged children.

Among the world's
DOLLS VILLA IS THE BENTLEY
Guido Tielman, Dutch
consul-general in the economically expanding city of Chongqing [31
million inhabitants], selected LILIANE BV from among approximately 200
Dutch international enterprises as the one with the greatest sales
potential in China by far: “I am very impressed by the DollsVilla by Liliane®.” Tielman is sounding out the potential of bringing the
DollsVilla by Liliane® to the children of China at the Wereldveroveraars conference for
conquerors of the world on 13 May 2014.
DollsVilla by Liliane® has tremendous sales
potential in China. Here’s an anecdote to illustrate this. I live in a
hotel in Chongqing. I recently passed by a wedding reception in the
hotel. Looking outside, I noticed that there were ten Ferraris at the
hotel car park! What I want to say is that there are many people in
China nowadays with serious money. My British colleague sells Bentleys
and he told me that he sold eighty Bentleys in just four years’ time.”
“This is the Bentley! [pointing to the
DollsVilla by Liliane®
on the screen in the conference hall] The Dutch DollsVilla by Liliane® is the
Bentley among the world’s dolls houses. The Chinese are very
status-oriented. If you, as a parent, are able to buy a DollsVilla by Liliane®, you are a good parent.”
“Because of the
one-child policy, parents only want the very
best for their child. The last [marketing]
element is that the Chinese wish to educate
their child to the highest possible level
and give it the best possible upbringing.
Parents are anticipating on the importance
of developing a child’s creative potential.
The DollsVilla by Liliane® can contribute to this

International entrepreneurial network.

DollsVilla by Liliane® was the winner of the Dutch National Award for Innovative Designs.
It was the first time in the 30 years of the Dutch Trade Mart that a toy
had been awarded this prize.
Hennie de Wit, Children’s World category manager at the
department stores: "The
DollsVilla by Liliane® is perfect for our new
Children’s World concept that we are setting up in our chain
stores. Not only as an item to sell, but also as a gimmick
in our children’s wear departments. We believe your product
will contribute to the image we want to create for these
UNBELIEVABLY, THE VILLA HAS
Flavourites: "When we were little
girls, we would dream of having a lovely doll's house. Liliane thinks
bigger: she has come up with and made a huge DollsVilla by Liliane®. You really have to
see it! The villa has even more rooms and furniture than our own house! In
one word: fan-tas-tic! As many as 30 dolls can live in this sturdy, timber
villa, and as many as six children can easily play with it for hours. And
because our children play with the villa,
can provide sponsor support to
women's shelters in the Netherlands. Ah yes, now we big girls have great
dreams of a dolls' villa..."
Vervoorn, editor-in-chief of Kidzlifestyle: "As a mother
and a products scout, I have seen many beautiful doll's houses. But when I
first saw the
DollsVilla by Liliane®, words simply failed me. It's just so
stunning, so solid, so stylish. And so beautifully conceived. It comes as no
surprise that it is also the winner of the National Award for Innovative
Design. The size of the villa, as well as the beautifully finished spaces in
the house really stimulate children - boys as well as girls - between the
ages of 3 and 10 years old to play together and have fun. After all, there's
nothing more inspiring than the recreation of 'everyday life'."

"You know how it is, sometimes you're house-hunting, and
however strict your budget, it just goes out the window when you
see your dream property. Beware, then of the same phenomenon as
it applies to dolls' houses. You may start browsing with a firm
figure in mind, but when you see what is available at the top of
the range, all that is forgotten.
DollsVilla by Liliane®. The price is approximately ten times what
you might expect to pay for such a thing. But take a look at it. It's huge.
It's crafted from good-quality wood, by a respected designer. It comes with
good intentions about being just as suitable for boys as girls [so, if you
have one of each, you get double the use out of it...].
Well, the fact is that most of us will look at it, see
the price, and move on, reluctantly or otherwise. But if you could stretch
to this sort of money for a toy, the chances are, you just might."
Sterre en Tijl exclusive children's stores: "You won't believe
the response we get to the DollsVilla by Liliane®, it's overwhelming!
What's more, this product attracts a whole new clientele. Putting a
DollsVilla by Liliane® in a store upgrades the entire range of products.
This product alone is enough to lend the entire store a high-quality feel.
The DollsVilla by Liliane® is the most beautiful and most sensational
toy introduced in recent years."
IMMEDIATELY IN LOVE
The children's megastore Winny Moscow: "All of the children of Russia would
be crazy with delight if they could see the DollsVilla by Liliane®! These are the types of things people
immediately fall in love with. This is about me and your villa."
De Toermalijn Eindhoven
wooden toy shop, Eindhoven: "The
DollsVilla by Liliane® can also be used for traditional
dolls and collector's items, such as dolls by Käthe Kruse. By including the
villa in the range, the age limit of the target group using wooden toy shops
has been extended from approximately 8 to 12 years old."
CHILDREN'S SHOP KINDER RAÜME
"TOTAL TOLL. Here we find an extraordinary, absolutely
fantastic dolls' house. The superlatives apply: durable,
extremely stable, versatile, flexible, as well as very
practical. The villa is 120 cm wide, 60 cm deep and 124
cm high and is placed on four strong wheels with foot
brakes, which enable the playhouse to be relocated
quickly. Thus the play house can be moved rapidly.
Children can play at the same time on all 4 sides. The
basic material is durable plywood and the roof is made of perforated
stainless steel. This gives this DollsVilla by Liliane® a modern and timeless
character. The separate components are numerous and are part of the complete
villa, from the furniture to the kitchen to the splendid spiral stairs. The
bathroom and kitchen units have perfect sinks and taps. The wardrobes have
real mirrors and so much more. The three beds are supplied with bed linen.
The playhouse can be used by dolls up 30 cm in height".
