Half Scale Dollhouse Discovery

There has been a lot of Buzz on the forum about a wonderful find at Michaels Arts & Crafts stores! They have been selling wood puzzle kits there for about a year. Usually, it's the animal ones that we have been seeing sold under the name "Wood Craft Assembly". Well, they finally have dollhouses!! I went yesterday to pick up a couple of them and have discovered they are 1/2" scale. Depending on where you are from, this scale is also known as 1/24th scale or half scale or Garden scale or G-scale.

These houses are sold for only $7.99 and the furniture kits are only $4.99 . As with all of this kits from Asia, they need lots of wood fill (or Spackle) because there are a lot of Gaps to be filled. The Great thing is that for the price, you can buy them to have as a project with your kids or even and all girl sleep over :)

O! Thanks for the clarification, I just bought some thinking that is 1:12. They are also available in Singapore.

How exciting! Now it's gonna be an even better deal with my 40% off coupons! Thank you for the heads-up.

Sorry you don't have any in your country Debbie. I used to sell these a few years back and they were 1" scale but the ones at Michaels are the same design but they are in 1/2" scale. Mary, that will be a Terrific deal made better with that coupon!

I saw something about these on a blog the other day, even wrote a recent blog about it. Anyways...I was looking through pictures online, came across your pics in Webshots, and have fallen in love with your cottages!!! I think I want to do this little 1/2 scale with paper clay...Just wondering if you were going to do the same?? I'd love to hear any ideas you may have! :)
