Arne Jacobsen MiiBox™ 1:16

Absence makes the heart grow fonder??? My apologies for the disappearing act - work, kids, vacation... the list goes on. I'm back and I'm trying to find more time to blog.

You've likely already seen this on others blogs, but when I received minimii's newsletter on my birthday announcing the sale of their new MiiBox, my jaw hit the floor. It is a smaller wall hanging version of their
true copy of Arne Jacobsen's villa at Gotfred Rodes Vej 2 in Charlottenlund, I blogged about here. I am in awe; I think the house is just stunning.

The first 300 MiiBox customers will receive a VIP furniture and accessory package. The smaller MiiBox version is still 1:16 scale, but it takes up half the space as the first house. The front of the house is hinged so it opens downwards to allow you to decorate when it is hung on the wall. The quality really looks incredible, and I would love to own one, but the price is out of my reach for now. The new MiiBox Wall Hanging Arne Jacobsen 1:16 house costs 603.89 € (about $860 US). The original Arne Jacobsen 1:16 House Model runs 939.46 € (about $1,340 US).

  1. I think your blog is great! You really is working hard to give us information about this hobby.

    Thank you for sharing the informations about Arne Jacobsen's villa.

    I have som of his old doll house furniture in two of my BRIO dollshouses on my Doll/Dollhouse page, "".

    Wish I had this new house.

  2. Lil -
    What a great collection you have! I love your Brio and Lundby houses and furniture. Wow, what a project restoring Janet's doll's house. The pictures of mother and daughter playing with the house 2 decades apart are priceless. Great job!

  3. I pondered really hard about buying one of those, but sadly I have no place for the big one, even though I think it looks great, it's too great! And the wallbox version is for me no more than a not so great substitute. As far as I can tell, the wall box version is very much like an ordinary dollhouse inside, with a very nice, but expensive facade. But who knows, maybe I will change my mind after I have given it more thought? :-)

  4. Hey Pubdoll!
    I agree, the big one is much better, but I as well have no space for it. I would love to see more photos of the interior, but you bring up a good point, it does look similar to the layout of standard box shaped dollhouses. I hope to see more of it, as I just love looking at the exterior. :)

    mini smiles,

  5. It is so tempting , but so dear....
    I also like the bigger version better.
