De Nederlandse Dutch design PoppenVilla by Liliane®. Bing Bang Pouf Canada: "Oh wow! No plastic, no pink, no shapeless design that takes kids for idiots… Just a simple and clean design, that helps kids to learn something we should all instil: less is more. Sharp details." De mobiele PoppenVilla is zowel voor jongens als meisjes geschikt, door de aanwezigheid van een auto-hellingbaan.

De originele, handgemaakte PoppenVilla by Liliane® uit 1997/1998, een ontwerp van Liliane Limpens, wordt onderdeel van de vaste museumcollectie van het feeërieke Museum Kinderwereld [1969] in Roden, nabij Groningen. Het museum heeft een imposante verzameling van oude poppen en beren. Kinderen kunnen in het museumcafé actief [samen] spelen met een tweede exemplaar, een nieuwe PoppenVilla uit de productieserie 2019.


Museum curator Mara Bosboom: "Zo kunnen de kinderen de ontwikkeling zien van een prototype naar haar uiteindelijke marktvorm."


In 1969 werd de Stichting Nederlands Museum Kinderwereld in Roden opgericht door de Vereniging voor Vreemdelingenverkeer en de Vereniging van Volksvermaken. Tegelijkertijd werd in dit jaar via het ANP een oproep gedaan aan de Nederlandse bevolking om eens op zolder te kijken naar speelgoed uit het verleden. Aan deze oproep werd massaal gehoor gegeven en het is de aanzet geweest van een unieke collectie. Momenteel beheren twee stichtingen het Kinderwereld Speelgoedmuseum: Stichting Nederlands Museum Kinderwereld en Stichting tot behoud Collectie Museum Kinderwereld.


Museum Kinderwereld biedt rondleidingen, een senioren arrangement, een arrangement voor kinderfeestjes en voor schoolreisjes. Binnenkort is er lesmateriaal beschikbaar, aan de hand waarvan basisscholen officiële leerdoelen kunnen bereiken.

Interview by Aleksandra Leszcyńska | July 29, 2019

Fathers Magazine, Italy Spring 2019
A creative collaborative blog and magazine for the modern dad



Paola Noé: “I think that Unduetrestella had the honour to present for the first time some design products that can be considered as “masterpieces” of contemporary design for kids. I’m totally fascinated by the three: Max in the BOX by Perlude and the furniture by EcoBirdy or the DollsVilla by Liliane®.”



Paola Noé has been an art critic, a curator and has worked in the editorial office of the prestigious “Flash Art” magazine. In 2008 she started to run Unduetrestella, a special contemporary art project for children. Today, the children’s universe is her hobbyhorse. She looks for the most interesting phenomena for kids – from art and design to vintage objects and even food and then exhibits them during the most important and unmissable international design sector event, a showcase for creativity, innovation and quality: Milano Design Week - by Aleksandra Leszcyńska.

Like every unduetrestella DESIGN WEEK edition, Liliane Limpens, the designer of DollsVilla by Liliane (NL), who creates two innovative models of a dollshouse on wheels, made of sustainable materials, full of every comfort, even the car ramp, like real toy furniture full of accessories.




On the occasion of the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci the theme of 2019 will be Leonardo the designer, even for the little ones: no one before him had demonstrated an imagination so close to the mind of a true contemporary designer, and very similar to the creative desires of a child. To remember the childish components of his vision.

Al Via la design week: ecco tutte le mete perfette per la famiglia



Milano durante la Design Week diventa un vero e proprio concentrato di creatività e colore, un grande palcoscenico dove arte, design e performance si incontrano. Tutto questo da domani fino al 14 aprile, giorni in cui la città ospita il meglio del design internazionale con il Salone del Mobile e il Fuori Salone: un’occasione unica non solo per gli addetti ai lavori, ma anche per tutta la famiglia, grazie a un calendario fittissimo di mostre, installazioni, percorsi ed eventi capaci di accendere la curiosità e l’immaginazione in grandi e bambini.


Alla Fabbrica del Vapore Unduetrestella Design Week celebra Leonardo da Vinci

Diventata punto di riferimento per il design dedicato all’infanzia Paola Noé quest’anno ci stupisce con un progetto tutto legato al 500° anniversario di Leonardo da Vinci, un percorso che risponde perfettamente al claim Hallo Leo! Artista, pittore, matematico, scienziato, Leonardo è infatti considerato il più grande genio di tutti i tempi e a questa multiforme creatività unduetrestella DESIGN WEEK ha dedicato la sua bellissima esposizione, nel grande Spazio Messina 2 all’interno della Fabbrica del Vapore.


“Ma ci piace pensare a Leonardo come il primo designer della storia, capace di coniugare creatività e funzionalità, bellezza e risoluzione pratica dei problemi, desiderio di superare i limiti e capacità di rimanere con i piedi per terra. Anche dopo aver volato. Leonardo ha costruito anche macchine terribili di guerra, eppure i suoi modellini oggi assomigliano a giocattoli, i suoi studi sulle ali e sugli animali hanno la poesia di un’illustrazione per bambini“. E sulla scorta di questo pensiero, Paola Noé ha realizzato un percorso tra estetica e funzionalità, con più di 40 brand e pezzi di design provenienti da tutto il mondo.

"[...] Mentre pensa in grande Liliane che propone una villa su ruote, perfetta per farci giocare bambole e bambolotti."

"[...] While thinking in large Liliane proposing a villa on wheels, perfect for dolls and dolls play."


Dollsvilla per bambole (e bambolotti) su ruole (da UnduetrestellaSTORE, prezzo su richiesta).


Vi siete mai chiesti perché la doll house piacciono tanto ai bambini (ma non solo)? La risposta sta nel loro potere immaginifico e nelle tante storie che tra quelle piccole pareti prendono vita, portandoci altrove per un po’, dentro mondi incantati, per vivere ogni giorno nuove avventure.

Have you ever wondered why children [and not only they] love the dollhouse? The answer lies in their imaginative power and in the many stories that come to life between those small walls, taking us elsewhere for a while, into enchanted worlds, to experience new adventures every day.


Avete presente, ad esempio, la bellissima Stettheimer Doll House dell’artista Carrie Stettheimer, che si trova presso il Museum of the City of New York? Realizzata tra il 1916 e il 1935, questa casa di bambole rappresenta da sola un vero scrigno di storie. E non solo perché si trova in un museo e ogni giorno è attraversata dallo sguardo e dalla memoria di migliaia di visitatori, ma anche perché nelle sue stanze si trovano opere d’arte in miniatura, create appositamente da alcuni famosi artisti del tempo amici di Carrie. Ad esempio Marcel Duchamp e Alexander Archipenko, tanto per citarne due. Se vi capita di visitare quel museo, fermatevi a guardarla bene, perché tra mobili e pareti c’è una bella parte della storia dell’artista. Carrie, infatti, era la sorella di Florine Stettheimer, pittrice eccentrica nella New York di inizio secolo, abituata ad ospitare in casa i personaggi più importanti della cultura del Novecento americano. Ed ecco la magia di questa doll house, che rappresenta un vero tesoro non solo per i bambini, ma anche per qualsiasi adulto che abbia, almeno una volta, sognato di vivere a New York, proprio nel momento in cui questa metropoli conquistava il titolo di capitale del secolo.

Have you seen, for example, the beautiful Stettheimer Doll House by artist Carrie Stettheimer, located at the Museum of the City of New York? Built between 1916 and 1935, this dollhouse is a true treasure trove of stories. And not only because it is located in a museum and every day is crossed by the look and memory of thousands of visitors, but also because in its rooms are miniature works of art, created specifically by some famous artists of the time friends of Carrie. For example, Marcel Duchamp and Alexander Archipenko, just to name two. If you happen to visit that museum, stop and look at it carefully, because there is a good part of the artist's history between furniture and walls. Carrie, in fact, was the sister of Florine Stettheimer, eccentric painter in New York at the beginning of the century, accustomed to hosting at home the most important figures of the twentieth century American culture. And here is the magic of this doll house, which is a real treasure not only for children, but also for any adult who has, at least once, dreamed of living in New York, just when this metropolis conquered the title of capital of the century.


Purtroppo con la Casa di bambole della Stettheimer non si può giocare, ma nessuna paura perché oggi il design si è sbizzarrito e ha dato vita a una nutrita serie di doll house davvero creative… con dettagli così minuziosi che viene subito voglia di aprire la porta ed entrarci. Sedersi a tavola e versarsi una tazza di tè. Come ad esempio la Mini Home o la Big Mini Home disegnata da Eero Aarnio per il brand finlandese Tactic: un set con mobilini e pezzi d’artista (lo riconoscete Puppy, sempre di Eero Aarnio?). Oppure le modernissime villas Miniko, delle vere e proprie case in miniatura, in materiali pregiati e rifinite a mano del marchio polacco Minjio (in Italia le trovate da UnduetrestellaSTORE). La maison francese Encore! punta su componibili da arredare come stanze molto romantiche, abitate da tanti coniglietti in stoffa, mentre pensa in grande Liliane che propone una villa su ruote, perfetta per farci giocare bambole e bambolotti. Se siete di quelli con la testa sempre tra le nuvole, la vostra casa perfetta è la cloud-house di Rock & Pebble, mentre gli amanti del classico stile Liberty potranno trovare ospitalità in una delle deliziose Sylvanian Family.

Unfortunately with the Stettheimer doll's house you can not play, but no fear because today the design has gone wild and gave birth to a large series of really creative doll houses ... with such meticulous details that you immediately want to open the door and go in there. Sit at the table and pour a cup of tea. Such as the Mini Home or the Big Mini Home designed by Eero Aarnio for the Finnish brand Tactic: a set with pieces of furniture and artist's pieces (do you recognize Puppy, also by Eero Aarnio?). Or the modern Miniko villas, real miniature houses, made of fine materials and hand finished by the Polish brand Minjio (in Italy you can find them from UnduetrestellaSTORE). The French fashion house Encore! tip on modular to be furnished as very romantic rooms, inhabited by many bunnies in fabric, while thinking in large Liliane that offers a villa on wheels, perfect for us to play dolls and dolls. If you are one of those with your head always in the clouds, your perfect home is the Rock & Pebble cloud-house, while lovers of the classic Art Nouveau style will find hospitality in one of the delightful Sylvanian Family.


E se volete leggervi anche un buon libro, lo trovate (ma dovete costruirvelo da soli) ne La mia piccola libreria (Rizzoli)… iperdibile! E voi, in quale storia vorreste entrare?

And if you want to read a good book, you can find it (but you have to build it yourself) in My little bookstore (Rizzoli) ... iperdibile! And you, in which story would you like to enter?

"Siamo felici di vedere ancora una volta le due varianti di dollvillas di DollsVilla by Liliane.
Ci conosciamo da tanti anni. Non ho mai visto una casa di bambole così "giocata" da bambine e bambini. In ogni nostra esposizione era il catalizzatore dei bambini.
Non è soltanto una casa delle bambole. È una risposta intelligente per essere bambini e giocare!
Grazie Style Piccoli, grazie Oriana Picceni, come sempre."

"We are happy to see once again the two dollvillas of DollsVilla by Liliane.
We've known each other for many years. I have never seen a doll house so "played" by little girls and children. In all our expositions it was the catalyst for children. It is not just a dollhouse. It's an intelligent answer to be children and ply!".

Italian publication - Christmas December 2017






The renowned Italian design-lifestyle magazine CASA facile published an editorial about the Dutch design DollsVilla by Liliane®.

The Doll’s House

Doll houses but also mini-kitchens are part of the so-called imitation play. They give children the opportunity to repeat gestures and situations that they have seen in the adult world. In this way they refine their movement skills and their perception of reality, the awareness and the expression of their own emotions. The play makes children aware of their own inner world and of the world around them.

La Casetta delle Bambole

Le casette ma anche le mini cucine fanno parte dei cosiddetti giochi di imitazione. Permettono ai bambini di ripetere gesti e situazioni osservati nella vita degli adulti; In questo modo si affinano la manualità e l ‘osservazione della realtà, La consapenolezza e l’espressione della proprie emozioni. Il gioco rende il bambino consapevole del proprio mondo interiore e di quello esteriore.

Kid's Wear Magazine Italy




Kid's Wear Magazine: "The Liliane DollsVilla is far more than a simple dollhouse; it has been designed by Dutch designer Liliane Limpens for dolls that are one foot tall, making this house unique in its genre. Liliane created this doll house because there wasn’t a sustainable home for the size of dolls children prefer to play with.


So this one-of-a-kind house on wheels, equipped with furnishings and a car ramp, made from sturdy materials, such as birch plywood, beach wood and stainless steel, come up at child-height.


“Playing with the Villa is playing with wood, I think it is important for children to play with naturals materials”.
The measure and endurance give the relationship between adult and child a kind of equivalence, considered relevant for kid’s growth.


The distinctive open design of the Villa encourages interaction and free play, that’s why Liliane thought that, apart from a family use, it could work into day care centers or primary schools.


It is a mission, she explained, to incite “female entrepreneurs to consider developing physical products, and not just think about providing a service.”


Putting down roots on ethical values this Villa will make children feeling real owners of their space."

Liliane Limpens: "De PoppenVilla by Liliane® is een uitingsvorm van een eerbetoon aan kinderen. Als hùn kinderen – de poppen - in een veilig en sterk huis wonen, heeft dat haar weerslag op het welbevinden van de ouders. De villa is een domein waar uitsluitend de kinderen de waarden en normen, omgangsvormen, perspectieven en vrijheden bepalen en kunnen beïnvloeden. Volwassenen hebben er niets te zeggen."


Blogger Judith de Feijter | Savedwithstyle: "DollsVilla by Liliane®. Twee enorme PoppenVilla's kon je bewonderen in de stand van LILIANE. Ondanks dat ik nog niet te maken heb met poppenhuizen, spreken deze villa's mij enorm aan. De achterliggende gedachte van eigenaresse en ontwerpster Liliane Limpens is erg interessant en dan te bedenken dat zij zelf de poppenhuizen met veel liefde heeft gemaakt. Ik wil graag meer over dit mooie concept vertellen, dus binnenkort een uitgebreid artikel."

Onder de poppenhuizen ter wereld:  

Guido Tielman, de Nederlandse consul-generaal in het economisch expanderende Chongqing [31 miljoen inwoners], selecteert uit circa 200 Nederlandse internationale ondernemingen LILIANE BV met stip als een onderneming met een interessante afzetpotentie in China: "Ik ben zeer onder de indruk van de PoppenVillla." Tielman polst op het congres Wereldveroveraars op 13 mei 2014 de ambities om de PoppenVilla by Liliane® naar de kinderen in China te brengen.


Tielman: “De PoppenVilla by Liliane® kan voet aan de grond krijgen in China. Een anecdote. Ik woon in een hotel in Chongqing. Laatst passeerde ik een huwelijksreceptie in het hotel. Buiten zag ik tien Ferrari’s op de hotel-parking! Hiermee wil ik zeggen dat er nu in China veel mensen zijn met veel geld. Mijn Britse collega verkoopt Bentley’s en hij vertelde dat hij in vier jaar tachtig Bentley’s heeft verkocht.


“Dit is de Bentley! [wijzend naar de PoppenVilla by Liliane® op het scherm in de congreszaal] De Nederlandse PoppenVilla by Liliane® is de Bentley onder de poppenhuizen ter wereld. Chinezen zijn statusgevoelig. Als je als ouders in staat bent om een PoppenVilla by Liliane® te kopen, dan ben je goede ouders."


"De éénkind-politiek zorgt er bovendien voor dat ouders het beste willen voor hun kind. Het laatste [marketing] element is dat Chinezen hun kinderen goed willen opleiden en hen een goede opvoeding willen meegeven. Ouders voorzien dat de creativiteitsontwikkeling van hun kinderen erg belangrijk is. De PoppenVilla by Liliane® kan daaraan bijdragen.”



Wereldveroveraars is het netwerk van internationaal ondernemend Nederland, een initiatief van onder meer Het Financieele Dagblad en BNR Nieuwsradio.

Marianne Charbonneau | Bing Bang Pouf Canada:  

"Oh wow! Geen plastic, geen roze, geen vormeloos ontwerp dat kinderen neerzet als idioten... Gewoon een simpel en strak design, dat kinderen helpt om iets te leren wat wij ons allemaal bewust zouden moeten zijn: minder is meer. Scherpe details."

"LILIANE brengt het poppenhuis naar een volgend level, letterlijk. Deze juweel is ontworpen voor 30-cm poppen. Het is zo'n leuk idee, en ik ben vooral dol op alle open ruimten. Het is perfect om mee te spelen."

Hennie de Wit, produktgroep manager kinderwereld:

"De PoppenVilla by Liliane® past zeer goed in het nieuwe concept van de afdelingen kinderwereld van De Bijenkorf-filialen. Enerzijds als artikel voor de consument, anderzijds als gimmick op de afdelingen kindermode. Wij denken dat uw produkt een positieve bijdrage kan leveren aan de uitstraling van de afdelingen."

De PoppenVilla by Liliane® was winnaar van de nationale onderscheiding voor innovatieve ontwerpen 2000.
Voor het eerst in de geschiedenis van het 30-jarige bestaan van de Trade Mart won een speelgoedprodukt deze prijs.

Kidzlifestyle, hoofdredakteur Vervoorn: "Ik heb als moeder en als productscout menig mooi poppenhuis gezien. Maar toen ik de PoppenVilla by Liliane® onder ogen kreeg, viel ik echt even stil. Zo prachtig. Zo solide. Zo stylish. Zo wel doordacht. Niet voor niets is het dan ook de winnaar van de Nationale Onderscheiding Innovatieve Ontwerpen. Het formaat van de villa evenals de prachtig afgewerkte verschillende ruimtes van het huis stimuleren kidz -zowel jongens als meisjes - tussen de 3 en 10 jaar om heerlijk samen te spelen. Niets is immers zo inspirerend als het nabootsen van 'everyday life'."

Contemporary finds modern tots



"Zo kan het een ieder van ons vergaan. Je bent op huizenjacht en hanteert een strikt maximum-budget voor de aankoopsom. Dit voornemen verdwijnt pròmpt als je plots voor je droomhuis staat.


Datzelfde fenomeen doet zich ook voor bij... poppenhuizen. Met een vast bedrag voor ogen wordt het zoekproces gestart. En dan kom je een topprodukt tegen dat in geen enkel opzicht  geëvenaard wordt.


Neem de PoppenVilla by Liliane®. De prijs is ongeveer tien keer zo hoog als wat ik verwacht te gaan betalen voor een poppenhuis. Maar kijk dan! Het is groots. Het materiaal is multiplex berken en het ontwerp is van de hand van een gerespecteerd designer. Een goede visie ligt eraan ten grondslag: geschikt voor zowel jongens als meisjes [dus als u van elk één heeft dan krijgt u voor de prijs van één het gebruik door twee...].


Het is weliswaar een feit dat de meeste mensen naar de PoppenVilla by Liliane® kijken, de prijs op zich laten inwerken en dan - al dan niet met tegenzin - het zoeken vervolgen. Maar als u zich deze aanschaf voor speelgoed kunt permitteren, dan is die mogelijkheid er."

Sterre en Tijl kinderwinkels: "We krijgen zo ongelooflijk veel reakties op de PoppenVilla by Liliane®! Bovendien trekt dit produkt een geheel nieuw publiek aan. De aanwezigheid van een PoppenVilla by Liliane® in een [houten speelgoed-] winkel zorgt voor een up grading van het totaal. Alleen al door dit produkt straalt het verkooppunt  in één keer kwaliteit uit. De PoppenVilla by Liliane® is het mooiste en meest opzienbarende speelgoedprodukt van de laatste jaren."


door Liliane Limpens  



Tatiana, inkoper van het kinderwarenhuis Winny Moskou: "Alle kinderen in Rusland zouden waanzinnig van vreugde zijn bij het zien van de PoppenVilla by Liliane®! De villa is typisch zo'n produkt waar mensen direct verliefd op worden. Ik ben het al."


door Liliane Limpens  



"TOTAL TOLL! De PoppenVilla by Liliane® is een uiterst uniek poppenhuis. Duurzaam, stabiel, mobiel, praktisch. Aan alle 4 zijden kunnen kinderen tegelijkertijd spelen. Het basismateriaal multiplex-hout en het roestvrijstalen dak geven de villa een modern en tijdloos karakter. De inrichting is compleet. Van meubels tot een keukenlijn tot de prachtige spiltrappen. De badkamer- en keuken-units hebben vanzelfsprekend de perfecte wasbakken en kranen. De garderobekast heeft een echte spiegel. De 3 bedden zijn inclusief het bedtextiel."

'Hebben en houden: Hppy Dcmbr-envlp ideaal kdo voor pkjesvnd' | Caroline Abcouwer in Het Parool: "Het mannelijke geslacht blijkt nu ook het laatste vrouwenbastion te hebben veroverd: het poppenhuis. Natuurlijk niet zomaar een poppenhuis. Nee, hij gaat voor de PoppenVilla by Liliane®. Een kloeke prestigewoning waar poppen van 30 cm goed uit de voeten kunnen."
