Latest News Today from your Favorite Mags

There are many information magazines in publication today, but few hold our attention like Dollhouse Mags of any variety. These could at one time tell our latest news today concerning the miniature world. Sadly though some of our favorites have closed their doors permanently. So sad really but truly a sign of our changing times.

In this brief article we will discuss:

  • who these publications are / were intended for
  • how much each one costs
  • when they are published
  • what ideas, concepts, projects and other issues they talk about
  • where you can find them (i.e. are they online, offline or still in business)
  • and why they are unique in the marketplace

Today's Top Five Dollhouse Magazines

#1. The Dolls' House Magazine

Dolls House Magazine in Miniature

This one is a favorite that has gone the way of the disappearing era. No longer in print but even old editions can be a goldmine for inspiration.

What it Contained

Covered numerous topics for collectors as well as novice enthusiasts. They made it interesting for readers as well as collectors.

Readers you say? Why yes readers. These days some of us do not read often. We, on the internet, scan because we are in a hurry usually. But then there are people who simply love reading.

So in this particular magazine there were plenty of articles to simply read and fill your mind with. Plus projects that got the creative easily motivated.

They however did not stop there. They covered an advice column that this writer/enthusiast wishes she had previous issues of.

Yes they covered what else? ....the assembly of a miniature kit! Oh well if one wants older issues they do provide these as well on their magazine back issues page. And nowadays on eBay. A bit hard to find but one could uncover gold at some point. You have to do some research though to find that gold.

#5. Miniature Collector Magazine...

Unfortunately this is an other one that has finished its course. It is sad to see such interesting magazines fail because of the times.

Its Features were:

Miniature Collector Mag

Features major info on what else "miniatures", but they don't stop there. They feature much about the artists and creators of miniatures. With in depth articles about their chosen artists of the month.

Miniature and Collector Shows are listed in the back. Giving a great calendar for each event with the times and places outlined.

Advertised entries in red. So this is simply a great business magazine for collectors as well as dollshouse business entrepreneurs.

It also lists over 50 added resources and websites in the back. These in themselves could be just what you are looking for if you are wanting to seek out a new miniature source.

This publisher also had other mags such as:

  • PolymerCAFÉ Magazine
  • Doll Collector Magazine
  • Soft Dolls & Animals! Magazine
  • Scrap & Stamp Arts Magazine

Think like an explorer when viewing even larger design patterns and always be asking yourself, "could I miniaturize that item?"

If so... calculate your measurements, look for the right construction material, plan your mini, set aside construction time and voila... your done. Your Project in Miniature - Complete!
