Your child's dream home: the Liliane dollshouse
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 some of the offerings at the top of the range, all that is forgotten.
Take the Liliane. 1,291 Euros (that's US $1,728 or GB £1,156) puts it at approximately ten times what you might expect to pay for such a thing. But then, 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, 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.
