ICFF 2010 favorite: Brinca Dada.

May 19th, 2010 · No Comments

When we spotted the Brinca Dada booth from across the convention hall aisle, and we immediately abandoned our planned trajectory to check out the miniature house perched atop a table. Since there were so many people gathered around, Brinca Dada founder Douglas Rollins (super nice guy) gave us a tour! The Emerson dollhouse is the first in the Brinca Dada line (with a townhouse and miniature furniture line to follow very soon).

Not only is the entire house made of non-toxic and lead-free wood stains and paints, but its six rooms — living room, library/office, master bedroom, bathroom, and child’s bedroom — are powered by solar panels! And yes, they really work! The Emerson also features mitered-glass corners, two fireplaces, sliding glass doors, and recessed LED lights. Let me tell you, The Emerson beats the pants off the second-hand Fisher Price dollhouse that I exhaustively played with as a kid.
