Everything you ever wanted to know about Lundby Dollhouses and more!

Written by on .

In 1947, Danish couple, Axel and Grete Thomsen set up home in Gothenburg and created the Gothenburg Lundby Dolls House. They were also the pioneers of the child‐safe 4.5-volt lighting system still used today (this is updated every couple of years to ensure it meets with Australian and NZ safety standards). Today Lundby Dolls Houses are made from a robust plastic that does not contain environmentally detrimental softeners or other undesirable substances. Plastic has been chosen in order for the lighting system to be safely incorporated within the frame of the Dolls House. Both Stockholm and Smaland are fitted with Lundby's unique 4.5-volt child-safe lighting system.
