DollsVilla by Liliane® in [emergency] shelters


In shelters, the [gender neutral] DollsVilla by Liliane® stimulates contact between children who are in similar situations. Feelings of shame and humiliation are released through the children’s ability to share these feelings with one another. Their mothers also join in, helping to create a relaxed atmosphere in which they can spend quality time with their children, something which has been absent in these families for so long. The DollsVilla is also used as a form of therapeutic play.

Warm nest helps stressed orphanage child NRC November 12, 2019.
American psychobiologists scientific journal
PNAS November 2019.
An unsettled stress response due to intense experiences in early life can recover during puberty. The research suggests that in addition to early childhood there is also a sensitive period during puberty, during which the biological stress system can still normalize by growing up in a warm nest. In people who grew up in an orphanage as a small child, the body reacts differently to exciting events at a later age than in people who spent their early years in a normal family. They make less of the stress hormone ortisol at those moments than usual, because their biological stress system functions less well. It did not matter at what age the children were adopted. Even with children who had only ended up with a family after their second year, the researchers saw this normalization of the stress response.

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.

"My heart beats faster by the DollsVilla by Liliane®, which is great for our three-year-old foster daughter, who can put so much imagination into this, which helps her development unwise."


"Like every foster child, there is also a whole world for her that does not exist in the life of children who grow up in a standard family. With such a beautiful dollhouse she gets more space to bring all her family members (biological family and foster home) of her life together in one setting."


"We are very happy with the DollsVilla! Only challenge is to get the children in bed today, because they will not be played out, haha."

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."

The proceeds of the High Trap bicycle tour by Kiwanis Young Professionals Alblasserwaard Drechtsteden [KYPAD] is spent on the purchase of DollsVilla by Liliane® for the Sliedrechtse Family House De Veilige Haven. Motto of KYPAD: Serving the Children of the World: Fun, Friendship and Fundraising.


"The family house is a family house for children between 8 and 15 years old, who can not live at home for various reasons. Family parent Wendy Oward offers these children a stable basis for optimal development and for processing the traumas of the past. In the shelter, normal life is emphasized as much as possible. There is a permanent professional educator instead of a changing group management, in order to guarantee the safety and continuity for the children. The upbringing is tailored to the needs of each individual child in relation to the diversity of problems." By Elise de Haas-Kornet.


"The DollsVilla by Liliane® is absolutely of added value for out-of-home children in a family home. It contributes to the processing of traumatic experiences, because interplay with the DollsVilla keeps the direct confrontation at a distance. By applying the newly learned skills in the family home it helps to solve conflicts and to promote contact with peers. In addition, it enriches their play by stimulating imagination and creativity. The DollsVilla also contributes to a warmer living atmosphere and stimulates a sense of self-worth among the children." By Suzanne Heikoop, photographer.

Thank you young & kind professionals!

All 225 women’s shelters and social shelters in the Netherlands have received a DollsVilla by Liliane®. In this way, a sponsor is contributing to the renewal of contact between mothers and their children, victims of domestic violence.


The Dutch Federation of Shelters: "Investing in children in shelters can help prevent problems. Often, the children themselves become perpetrators or victims of violence later down the line. The villa helps to build an ideal home where there is no violence. This process rebuilds the basis that gives the children the freedom to be a child again. By investing in this DollsVilla by Liliane®, you are investing in a better future for these children."


"The centres are very impressed with this sponsor's gesture. The DollsVilla by Liliane® is an addition to the help available to children at the centres. However, it's not just for children, the villa also invites the mothers to play. This relaxed contact between mother and child is essential for both of them. The dolls' villa is also used to observe children at play, establish a rapport with a child and to recreate difficult home situations so that painful experiences can be handled."


translated from Dutch


Johan Gortworst | Director of the Dutch Federation of Shelters [Federatie Opvang]:
"The Federation believes it is of vital importance to invest in children in shelters [6,700 each year], as this can help prevent problems in the future. Often, the children themselves become perpetrators or victims of violence, domestic and otherwise, later down the line. No stone is left unturned to give these children a positive new start and a DollsVilla by Liliane® such as this can certainly help. It helps teach the children how to play again, how to play with their mothers, and helps build an ideal home where there is no violence. These are all fantastic things that the children have not often experienced.
This process rebuilds the basis that gives the children the freedom to be a child again. It allows them to grow up in the way that every child should. By investing in this DollsVilla by Liliane®, you are investing in a better future for these children."
