- About Us -

Making miniatures (mainly food replicas of all kind with a scale of 1:12) true to the original is our passion and our profession. We are making and selling miniatures for dollshouse collectors for more than 15 years now.
It all started with only a very small range of miniatures showing them at some local miniature fairs in the early 1990s. In 1995 we opened our own dollshouse store (Das Puppenhaus) in Munich and in 2000 we started with selling our miniature work via this website. After running our dollshouse store for 12 years we closed it in October 2007 to fully concentrate on our steadily growing online trade.

- About Our Miniatures -

Miniature food made of Fimo and other Polymer Clay is our speciality. All of our miniatures are 100% modelled and painted/decorated by hand, strictly without the use of any moulds, punches or similiar aids. All miniatures are exactly made to a scale of 1:12 (the usual and most common scale for dollshouse miniatures).
Currently we have a range of about 350 different miniatures to choose from. And each month (usually at the first day of the month) we will add at least one new miniature to it.
