Living out of a Suitcase

We’ve stumbled upon many toys that make us want to be knee-high again, but none so much as these ingenious dollhouse suitcases from German toy makers Hase Weiss. Inside each beautifully crafted wooden suitcase is a modular nest of rooms, which allows your kiddly-winks to design a new house every time they play with their dollies...

On the front of the suitcase is a clever chalkboard, which you can put in front of the house and draw things like gardens, pools and stepping stones. Maybe even a dashing Aston Martin when the kids go to bed...

Architect Anna Pfeiffer and artist Ulrike Rumpenhorst are the forces behind these amazing cases. As mother’s themselves, they wanted to design toys that their children had only dreamt of. We think they’ve certainly cracked the brief, and they’ve also given us a totally new perspective on what living out of a suitcase really means.
