This family was purchased along with a few other Mattel tiny dolls to use in an old handmade dollhouse. They fit and are cheerful and cute as well as bendable. All over, in stores and on line, the only dolls sold for dollhouses are either collectables and very expensive or spooky and strange looking. (or huge with their own huge plastic house) Why have a dollhouse that can't be played with? The dolls have inspired lots of creative story telling to each other and tons of fun. Thanks!
