Toy Photography and the History of


During my recent trip to visit family in Ohio, I went to Ikea for the first time ever. While, there I, of course, had to buy their dollhouse furniture set – Huset.


The cardboard box the set comes in has all these decorations you can pop out. So I decided to make a whole room display completely out of the box.

I recorded the process, though my camera died partially through – but I think you’ll get the picture.

    I’ve never been to Ikea – never even seen a catalog – if they even have one. I’ve heard of them. If their furniture is anything like your room you create, it’s got to be fantastic!!

      I ordered a catalog awhile back but never got it… This was my first time going so I don’t know a ton about their furniture but all their room displays were gun to look at and everything was very pretty. This dollhouse set is replicas of actual furniture they have. How fun would it be to have the minis and the real versions?

    Ikea does have some good toys. I bought a wood train from them. Their food is pretty good, too.

    Sadly the closest one is three hours away. :(

    I lived in Sweden in the 1980s and loved IKEA. When I moved back to the States I was thrilled when they opened the stores here. I do not visit often, but when I do it makes me feel young, What a great video, fun post.

    Did that sofa come with the cover? Is it just molded to look like a cover or really a cloth cover? I love love this. Why didn’t you ask me over to play with you????
