Elaine Shaw is back with a clear view for the future

One of the questions I get emailed the most often is "what happened to Elaine Shaw?" Well folks, she's back. With a vengeance.

Elaine Shaw (designer of the Clearview Doll's House, founder of Miaim) is back with a brilliant new design you can read all about on her Kickstarter page here: Kickstarter is a really cool website the helps creators/inventors/artists/authors fund their projects and bring their ideas to life.

Elaine gained notoriety when her Clearview Dollhouse debuted in 2010. The Clearview was a stepping stone to bigger and brighter designs, and Elaine is thrilled to offer you a chance to get in on the ground floor and build your own dream dollhouse out of her newest idea the "MiPad".

The MiPad is made up of individual floors. Each floor is 23cm high, 51cm deep and 61cm wide or approximately 9” high, 20” deep and 24” wide. Instead of buying the whole house, you buy it one floor at a time and build your house the way you want it. All of the floors are stackable and interchangeable. Elaine currently has 4 different floor designs and is working on another 6 floors so there will be 10 floor designs to choose from.

The MiPad is built to be assembled permanently or to be taken down and reassembled for relocation. The clear acrylic doors slide all the way out and others open up easily or can be removed and everything is replaceable.

Elaine has 24 more days to have people fund her project to bring the MiPad into existence. If you are as excited about this gorgeous modern dollhouse as I am, I hope you can help fund Elaine's MiPad by pledging to buy a floor or two. If you can't, please spread the word so we can find enough buyers to get these houses built. Our world needs more modern dollhouses in it.


  1. I want that house, really, that house is perfect and there is no limit the decorating possibilities. Thank you for alerting me to the campaign!

  2. All I can say is WOW! This is wonderful and what a great concept! Elaine's video and presentation is so compelling!

  3. Aww Thanks Guys! I am so glad you like it because I designed it for you. Thanks to modernminihouses for the post, it is much appreciated. Kickstarter is a great place to let you all know about MiPad but it's taking a while for news to circulate. Pledging on Kickstarter is a bit like pre ordering the product itself but even if I don't meet my target goal (kickstarter is an all or nothing deal) I will still do my utmost to bring MiPad to market, though it will take some time longer.

  4. What a great dollhouse! I love it! :)

  5. A unique art and design from a fine artist. I love the idea of mini house that build a difference from any other architecture.

  6. I love that house :)
    Wanted to gift my daughter

  7. Hi, this is a triumph.... what does the average human need to shell out for one of these babies...??
