Such was the outcry at the news this Dublin institution was to close down that our radio waves were filled with worried callers, until the Powerscourt Townhouse Centre stepped in and rehoused this wonderful shop in their Georgian ballroom. As you look around you suddenly realise how much effort goes into making a dolls house. All walls are packed with displays of miniature furniture, doors, windows, food and utensils... and there is even a display of wallpapers and floor coverings, while a restoration service is available to bring life back into an old house. You can create your own dolls or attend the Dolls School and make your own princess porcelain doll. Upstairs at the Teddy Bear Clinic you are asked to stay quiet for the patients. All old, ill or torn teddy bears and dolls can be brought here to be mended and loved back to health. With over 21 years of experience, let Melissa do her best for your loved one.
