Favorite of the Week - Uneeda Pee Wee Doll House

Too cute for words! I had to share a picture of this adorable vintage doll house. This dollhouse is 1960s vintage -- I would date it as 1966 to 1968. It's a Uneeda dollhouse for Pee Wee dolls. Perfect Liddle Kiddle scale, too. Super cute and oh so retro! I couldn't find a reference for this dollhouse anywhere online, so I believe it is a rare one.

Sold for $49.99 from my store.

My brother helped my dad make these in the early to mid-1960s. They were made in a small shop in Newark,N.J. called Metalmaster, though they were a silk-screened fiberboard type material. Not many were made. I had the prototype as a child and loved it for years. My brother found one online and presented it to me several years ago. A great find, and a great example of small scale American manufacturing.

That is really neat! They are such cute dollhouses and it is cool that your brother and Dad helped create them! Also -- you had the prototype!! Love that!

My neighbor just gave me one of these adorable little houses. It’s in great shape. I have quite a few different dollhouses but never saw or heard of this design before. Neat that it’s from Newark, NJ. That’s next to the town where I was born. Thanks for the info. It’s hard to find any.
