Group Description

This group is about PLAYSCALE!

In today's doll world, there seem to be 3 main scales:

1. Dollhouse Scale of 1:12, aka 1 inch to the foot, Dolls are usually 3-6” tall

2. PLAYSCALE of 2:12 aka 2 inches to the foot, Dolls are usually 7-12” tall

3. Fashion Doll Scale of 3:12, & 4:12, aka 3-4 inches to the foot, Dolls are usually 13-21” tall`

All to say, at 1:6, PLAYSCALE is twice as big, as the size of Dollhouse Scale (aka Barbie Size)
...yet smaller than the size of Fashion Doll Scale (Alex-Cissy Size)

In the TOP Photo above, see the 3 sizes of CANDELABRUM.
Left - 1:12 Dollhouse SCALE,
Center -1:6 PLAYSCALE,
Right – 1:3 Fashion Doll SCALE

BUT Scales can apply differently for any doll ~ DEPENDING ON THE AGE THAT THE DOLL REPRESENTS; You Choose!
ie. Is Your 8” Bride Doll An Adult?…. Or A Kid Playing Dress-Up?!?
An 8" doll appearing as an adult bride would sit in a chair, where her feet hit the floor.
An 8" doll appearing as a child, dressing up as a bride, would sit in a chair, with her feet on the rung, unable to reach the floor.
You Decide what AGE your doll represents!...and from there, what Scale best fits your needs!

Scale applies to measurements when selecting furniture and accessories for each size doll, as well as sizes for rooms.
For example, a PLAYSCALE Room that is 40 inches long X 20 inches wide, with a ceiling height of 16 inches,
corresponds to
A Real Life-Size room that is 20 feet long X 10 feet wide, with a ceiling height of 8 feet.

NOTE: Because of a previous issue, I need to clearly state: This group is for ALL ages; LITTLE KIDS to elders, so NO "Adult Doll" material...i.e. No Adult Photos, Files, Posts, and/or Links to sites with dolls in violent scenes, sexualized poses, suggestive storylines, etc.)
