Mini Mart: The Dolls House Mall

1/6 scale doll dressing table
Check out the tiny safety pins and hair grips on the dressing table!

Supplier: The Dolls House Mall
Website: www.thedollshousemall.com

Products: I've been coveting half the inventory of The Dolls House Mall for years - I just put off ordering from them because I knew I'd end up spending a fortune. I did. But it was totally worth it! Among other things, I bought hair grips and safety pins, buttons and elastic bands, necklaces, a remembrance day poppy and a razor with spare razor blades. I was so impressed with each and every item - they are very true to scale, even the cheese grater which I had imagined would be closer to 1/8, at least.

They even make miniscule paperclips!

I also bought a bunch of printed paper products because it's so difficult to find stuff which is clear and legible in smaller scales. I got a palmestry chart, medical diagrams, a fold-out map, and stamps. I tried out the personalised photo frame service too. You send them a jpg image and they create a miniature framed photo for you. I chose a picture of Marianna (of course) and it's absolutely adorable! The picture they used comes on a sheet of 4 individual prints, so they sent me the rest of the sheet which is really cool.

No room in this house, miniature or otherwise, is complete without a picture of Marianna...

Post and Packing: The website is really easy to use, and you can check out with Paypal which is always a plus. Second class postage was £3, and my order was sent out in a thin box, so it could fit through the letter box which is such a great idea for miniatures. One of the items I ordered (a little medal) was out of stock so I was refunded and sent a slightly different medal instead. Definitely can't quibble with that!

    1. Haha, my excuse is always that my hobby is miniature so it can't take up that much space... Then my other half points out that the miniatures just keep multiplying so it makes no difference! I've got three houses at the moment, then I'll have to get another for Marianna when she gets a little older, of course... ;)

    1. I love fiddling about and rearranging it all in there - so much easier to move furniture around when it's only a couple of inches high! ;) Aw, no problem. My mum had the baby the other night so I was just blogging and watching TV all evening. It was bliss! :D x

    1. Hehe, it's one of my worst fears - I dread to think how much money's worth has ended up in the hoover over the years!

  5. Oh my goodness, these are all so tiny I'd be scared of sneezing and losing the lot.
    It must be a bit like playing operation when you are putting all the pieces together - which look fabulous by the way :)

    1. Thank you! It's weird because when I was a kid I didn't like dolls and miniatures because they were too small and fiddly, and I had absolutely no patience. So I guess I'm just making up for it now - even though I still have no patience! :)

Guide to Sindy Houses

As far as 1/6 scale doll houses go, Sindy's Super Home is fairly ubiquitous. It's a good size, it isn't made out of pink plastic, and you can pick one up on eBay for under £50. But the Super Home wasn't Sindy's only foray into property ownership. In fact she had numerous different houses, caravans, stables, and other buildings... 1970 Sindy's Town House Though this was advertised in the 1970 brochure, it doesn't seem to have ever made it into production. 1973 Sindy's House This one apparently made it into limited production, but was flimsy and was soon replaced. According to the Sindy Museum , it had four rooms, decorated as a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and lounge. You can see part of the house used for photos in the 1974 catalogue . 1974 Sindy's House Existing examples appear to have been competition wins, so it is unlikely this house was ever on general sale. You can read more about it HERE . 1975

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
