Djeco Dollhouse Families and Furniture (Review)

Jaybird has a Lundby dollhouse that she really loves, but we don't have any of the Lundby furniture or doll sets to go with it. It is mostly furnished with Calico Critters furniture, which is a bit off-scale, but it's not too bad.  Jaybird is not really a fan of the Lundby people, so I was very excited to find these Djeco dollhouse families, which are basically the same scale as Lundby (in the 1:16 to 1:18 range).  We purchased 2 of the families for her birthday in November.

The "Milo et Lila" family is definitely our favourite:

But I was so taken by the hipster-looking dad of the "Gaspard et Romy" family that I got them too.  Unfortunately, the daughter looks a bit mean and the mother looks like a Stepford wife.  She actually spends most of her time lying down under one of the beds in the Lundby, as Jaybird thinks she looks like she is about to crack under the pressures of modern life.  The little boy is quite cute.

It is actually nice having the two families, as they can be mixed together.  Here is a photo in the Lundby house.  The table and chair set is also from the Djeco dollhouse range and I love the modern look.  The dolls are jointed at the knees, which is great for posing.  The fridge and counter in this scene are Calico Critters (Sylvania Families), and you can see they are a bit small, but not horrible.

I wasn't able to find the Djeco dollhouse families or furniture in North America, so I ordered from "Avenue des Jeux" in France.  The order came quite quickly.

If you are bothered by the cartoony look of the Gaspard et Romy family, Djeco also has the "Tomas et Marion" family, which is done in a style similar to the Milo et Lila family.

Here are a couple more photos of the Djeco dolls.  The motorcycle/sidecar and bicycle are both Calico Critters.  I am very happy we found these little dolls for our Lundby!


  1. Had never seen these...Very interesting, and so cute !

  2. Love them so much!! Thank you for introducing me to this range!

  3. Dad seems much happier with his new wife, tho perhaps a bit caffeinated as hipsters often are.

    Nice clothes and bendable knees -- these are worth searching out for our Lundby too. We usually look for Djeco stuff in Montreal. At least it'll give us a reason to hit the Jean Talon market and eat frites.

  4. Oh wow! I love the bike with the side car!!
