Calling all UK Dollhouse builders

Do you live in the UK? Do you build dollhouses? Do you want to be on TV?

A television production company contacted me looking for any UK crafters who build their own dolls houses. Each year they have competitions on the programme and this year they’re having a ‘Toys’ competition and are hoping to find some dollhouse builders.

If you are interested please email me and I will send your information to the production company. You must be from the UK as that's where they film the programme.

Looks like a dollhouse to me

The B&B Italia Arne low swivel bookcase looks like it could be a 1:12 scale dollhouse. Designed by Antonio Citterio in 2005 the bookcase measures 2'4"L x 2'4"W x 2'2"H. I'm trying to figure out how much it costs but it's no longer on the B&B Italia website so I'm guessing it has been discontinued. Bummer, I would have loved to decorate this as a dollhouse. I found it in the catalog of Autodesk's Homestyler Floor Planner, free software to help you design rooms.
