Sid Cooke Dolls Houses are manufactured from a mixture of Birch Plywood and MDF.
The main carcass of the Dolls House is in Plywood whilst the less stressed panels such as floors and internal walls are in MDF. Ranges of hardwood mouldings are used to add architectural features and detailing to the outside.
Sid Cooke Dolls Houses can provide their Dolls Houses fully assembled, decorated and wired. However, the vast majority are sold flat packed, in kit form. All panels are cut using modern, computer-controlled machinery.
Panels are very accurately machined and you do not need to be a craftsman to assemble a Sid Cooke Dolls House to a high standard. Simply ensuring that joints are pushed fully "home" will ensure the finished assembly is "square" and opening panels, doors and windows are a good fit.
Kits come complete with all hardware and components such as windows and stairs, glue and sandpaper together with comprehensive illustrated instructions to allow you to create a professional finish.
Dolls Houses are frequently regarded as a children's toy. However, there is a global market for a more mature customer who can justifiably be considered Dolls House collectors or miniaturists.
Dolls Houses in this market are often more sophisticated and stylish than childrens Dolls Houses incorporating many realistic architectural features.
Collectors Dolls Houses may be a craftsman built products constructed of high quality birch plywood. The keen miniaturist will devote many hours decorating, wiring and furnishing their Dolls Houses in order to achieve a realistic finish.
Dolls Houses such as this can be displayed in the home as works of art. Children's Dolls Houses are commonly ready finished and made of less durable MDF.
The most popular scale for collectors Dolls Houses is 1/12th although 1/24th scale Dolls Houses are becoming more popular and even 1/48th scale Dolls Houses are available.
As with the real thing people buying Dolls Houses may seek out a particular period, so you will be able to find Tudor Dolls Houses, Georgian Dolls Houses, Regency Dolls Houses, Victorian Dolls Houses, Art Deco Dolls Houses, Edwardian Dolls Houses or modern Dolls Houses.
