We know how much you love doll houses – small, large, homemade, designer; they all have incredible charm when made beautifully with love and care. We’d love to see the beautiful modular doll houses from Lille Huset become a reality so we’re helping to spread the word about pledging a little money in order to get production up and running through Kickstarter.
This is truly a power-of-the-people project, with pledges as little as $1 to help creator Alyson Beaton raise $8000 to make her pretty little houses a reality. There are many levels of pledges – for example with a $15 pledge you get a small house and a little bicycle. Australian pledgers will need to add on a little more for post.
If you pledge enough to score one of the houses, you can choose from six designs. It will reach you flat packed and then your children can do the fun bit of putting it together and making it theirs. There’s even a divine birthday kit to be had! So why use Kickstarter to start a business? Here are Alison’s goals:
In order to get this project going the Kickstarter amount will fund the initial costs of the dies, printing, laser cutting, boxes and materials for producing the first run of 1000 doll houses and 2000 extra little houses (but if I get more backers, I’ll make more houses). The initial run makes up the bulk of the production cost, because of the upfront cost of the dies. This manufacturing process requires that I produce at least 1000 in quantity. Your pledge will allow me to get the ball rolling, start making & selling and putting my whole team of people to work!
With your support, I will also take these little houses to the New York International Gift Fair & Playtime NYC in August where we will have the opportunity to meet hundreds of buyers and get them into the stores that already want them.
You can read a whole lot of interesting tidbits of information about Alyson and the Lille Huset project over at her Kickstarter page. In the mean time, get pledging and let’s all band together to help a really worthwhile fledgling project. All Lille Huset products are reusable and eco-friendly.
