30 Days Of Retro Toys - Day 24 - Tin Doll Houses

Day 24:
Tin Doll Houses

(Sears catalog, 1964)

Before Little People, before Barbie's Dream House... but significantly after the invention of the quaint Victorian Doll House... came tin doll houses! There were many varieties, but one of the neat things about them was that the walls were often decorated, and they really were quite pretty. I had one as a wee lass, and my grandma had one, too. I see them every so often at antique markets for $50-100, depending on the model.
