As a guy, I was never into playing with dolls and dollhouses, but if I knew that they came with widescreen LCD televisions, I might have thought differently when I was growing up. Over on Etsy, you can now purchase a tiny little LCD TV for your dollhouse.
The TV measures about 3.74″ (w) x 2.24″ (H) x 0.67″ (D), which I guess makes it the equivalent of a somewhat thick 42-inch HDTV in 1/12th dollhouse scale. But I guess that all depends on the size of your dolls. If you’ve got really small ones, you can pretend it’s a 70-inch set, right?
The tiny TV was made by a guy named Amatheria over in Seville, Spain (he also makes tiny IKEA furniture), and it even can play video and audio that you load into it via a USB connection (but not over-the-air TV). The TV itself appears to be made from plastic and cardboard, and is engraved with various speaker and button details, as well as logos for the guy who made it.
The only thing not to like about this little TV is the price – it’s listed for €195, which works out to be about $284 (USD). I’m pretty sure you can get an actual 42-inch TV for just a little more than that at Wal-Mart these days. Sure, developing a shrink-ray will set you back a couple of billion dollars, but that’s okay, right?
