How do you take care of dollhouse furniture?

The first step in protecting your dollhouse furniture and keeping it in tip-top shape is storing it in a clean, dry place. Humidity fosters mold and mildew, the same things that attack your “real” furniture. Keep the house away from heat sources and out of direct sunlight. Check the dollhouse furniture regularly, and clean it now and then with a clean, lint-free, barely-dampened cloth or a lambswool duster. With care and protection, your dollhouse miniature furniture can continue to show off its beauty for generations of use and fun.

What is a roombox?

A roombox is a box that is used to display a scale model of the furniture of a particular environment. It does not have to be a dining room or bathroom in a house but can also be the interior of a shop or office building. It can display an exterior setting like a garden and does not have to be realistic. Roomboxes can be made to show the landscapes of alien planets or fairy gardens.
