Babyologists rejoice! We have discovered an eco-friendly dollhouse containing some uber cool features and it’s perfect for either boys or girls. Similar to the Plan Toys green dollhouse we featured in June, the Hape International Bamboo Sunshine dollhouse is – you guessed it – made from bamboo. That in itself is impressive but it really does get so much better.
Dollhouses remain a big hit with kids of all ages and sustainable dollhouses are a great option to help instill awareness of the environment. This bamboo version takes eco-conscious playtime one step further with working solar panels that power four rechargeable batteries. These batteries then light five LED lights inside the house! So the kidlets can have a play in the sun with the dollhouse and when night falls, their little house will be fully lit for all its miniature inhabitants. It also features an optional greenhouse where kids can grow their own real plants.
Completed with a light water-based stain and polished with beeswax, it creates a satin feel finish. No rough edges here. It also comes fully equipped with nine rooms of furniture and a family of five. Priced at US$499.95 with very limited quanities available, to order go to Modern Lola. A freight forwarder will need to be organised for shipping to Australia.
