Design Dollhouses: Creative Or Creepy?

We get it with the whole parenting thing—once you have a kid, the house goes from something like looking like a Design Within Reach showroom to a backdrop for a Disney cartoon. For the parent who wishes to maintain a high-design pad, there’s a litany of concept toys out there on the market—like these Home On The Go dollhouses, which feature streamlined, Jetson-esque miniatures in artistic color schemes. Either, the kid who plays with this has one heck of an imagination … or she grows up with a cold, cynical outlook on what constitutes a warm, friendly home.

What’s that, honey? You wanted a Malibu Barbie Dream House? Sorry dear, it clashes with the Eames rocking chair. []
