Kindergarden Waterloostraat Rotterdam




A new daycare center, a new out-of-school care center and a DollsVilla by Liliane®: Kindergarden Waterloostraat Rotterdam [Kralingen]. The out-of-school care borders the schoolyard of the Nieuwe Park Rozenburgschool primary school, with which Kindergarden cooperates.


The children of Kindergarden Hilversum, Kindergarden Villa Vondel Amsterdam, Kindergarden Middenweg Amsterdam and Kindergarden Stad Amsterdam have been using the DollsVilla for a little longer, every day!


Kindergarden with 63 Dutch daycare and out-of-school care centers is part of Bright Horizons.

In the Netherlands




The original, handmade DollsVilla by Liliane® from 1997/1998, a design by Liliane Limpens, becomes part of the permanent museum collection of the fairy-tale Museum Children's World [1969] in Roden, near Groningen in the north of the Netherlands. The museum has an impressive collection of old dolls and bears. Children can actively play [together] in the museum café with a second one, a new DollsVilla from the 2019 production series.


Museum curator Mara Bosboom: "This way the children can see the development of a prototype into its final market shape."


In 1969 the Dutch Museum Children's World Foundation in Roden was founded by the Association for Tourist Traffic and the Association of Folk Entertainment. At the same time, in this year an appeal was made via the ANP to the Dutch population to look at toys from the past in the attic. This call was met with mass response and it was the start of a unique collection. Two foundations currently manage the Children's World Toy Museum: Dutch Museum Children's World Foundation and Foundation for preserving the Museum Children's World Collection.


Children's World Museum offers guided tours, a senior package, a package for children's parties and school trips. Teaching material will soon be available, which will enable primary schools to achieve official learning objectives.

New primary school in Amsterdam-Noord




Klein Amsterdam will integrate the DollsVilla by Liliane® in its education in the coming period. 'Learning in the gap', a school concept where not the method but the child and his or her individual development are central, in accordance with the dynamics of the 21st century. Inspired by the pedagogical approaches of Reggio Emilia, Loris Malaguzzi and John Dewey. A new primary school with indoor school care.


"Our mission is to create a school as a space in between; a safe shelter, in which school and environment are integrally connected, so that children learn optimally from and with each other, from the neighborhood, city, culture and society."

Rye Free Reading




Lots of family fun in the garden of the Rye Library New York, gathered around the dutch DollsVilla by Liliane®. A Vehicle Fair, to support the library.


The library began as the dream of a few concerned citizens who met in 1884. They formed a constitution for a new library organization, primarily as a place for young men and boys to recreate and escape the undesirable effects of saloons. In 2003, the gracious new program wing and the expanded children’s room were again largely funded by donations from a community committed to maintaining a library often called the Jewel of Rye.

Made With Respect - Auckland New Zealand




Another MWR Girlboss, Liliane Limpens © Designer of the DollsVilla by Liliane® shares her inspiration for taking her passion to protect the planet into her business.


"We must learn to be protectors of nature and appreciate everything that it provides us. It is important for young children to be around natural materials, to be able to touch, feel, smell and interact with their unblemished nature."


"I am passionate about introducing children to the wonders of wood through play as this interaction contributes to an awareness of sustainability at a young age. Children are capable of developing a real connection with the products of this earth and we need to encourage that as much as possible for our Planet to thrive."


The DollsVilla by Liliane is a sustainable dolls house, built at a child's height. Made of FSC birch plywood, beech and stainless steel. FSC standards have been developed to protect the forests' biodiversity and ecological processes.

Language class for refugee children De Zonnewijzer Roermond




"Our Language Class has been extended with a DollsVilla by Liliane® since September 2018. What an asset it is! Both young and old can be amused by the different possibilities of the PoppenVilla."


"There are children who have not yet had any education in their native country, and this often causes them to have a hard time acquiring the new language. It requires a lot of creativity from the teacher and the children to make them part of the group, so they can actively participate in the classroom. The DollsVilla is a great invention to involve everyone in the process."

Development of the children by the DollsVilla by Liliane®:
  Social emotional development
  Spatial awareness
  Play development
  Extension vocabulary
  Working attitude

"The language grows tremendously throughout the DollsVilla by Liliane®, children play with both dolls and cars, so that they tell each other what they are doing. For example, the themes such as the home, interior and exterior and family are greatly expanded by the DollsVilla. Through the touch and the experience children learn what happens in the Netherlands. Unfortunately, many children in our language class miss the Dutch language at home because parents can not speak it. Because of the DollsVilla and the play that is being organized, they also learn to talk with the dolls in Dutch at home."


"You can notice that the DollsVilla has been well thought out, everything at the villa is solidly built and playable for the children. And there is also the option for the children to remodel the house as they would like. A very nice goal of Liliane who in this way beautifully commited to the language of refugee children in the Netherlands."
