I have been searching for a few years for a low priced Fisher Price Little People house and a few weeks ago just happened upon one while scrolling through FB Marketplace after having forgotten that was even a thing for months.
The seller was very Covid-conscious and willing to wait a couple days until I was back in “the city” to pick them up, so I jumped on the chance to get the A-frame AND the Tudor houses for $25! They came with a few pieces of furniture, a couple of people, etc.
Luckily, I already had a stash of people, furniture, etc. from making - and planning to make - dioramas. Ahem.
I used kiddo versions of TheMisterT (as a ninja) and myself. Then made a few holiday decoration for our Little selves: a tree, stockings (the big one is for Delia Dog), wintery bedclothes, a pennant bunting, a bow on the front porch bell, and a welcome mat.
I had also recently purchased a mail truck with letter carrier so I made a batch of Christmas cards using some svg files from a Valentine card to cut them.
And then I went ahead and did near-future versions of TheMister T and I and an ageless Delia. When I gave the kiddo/oldz options to TheMisterT he said, “But this guy doesn’t have any hair.” And I said, “Yeah, and she’s ENTIRELY grey… hence ‘near-future’”.
I went ahead and picked up a string of battery-operated, multi-colored LEDs to string on the roof line.
