Borrowers and other small people
Mary Norton's "Borrowers" books have inspired many miniature scenes. I have taken her idea a step further and decided that if six-inch-high people can live hidden in our own houses, then half-inch-high people may well live in our dollhouses.
The scene below and the miniature Borrowers are available as kits or ready made. The large long case clock is not included, but three "Borrowers" are. The kit is $50 and the completed scene $100.
Part of the Clock family home.
Borrower-like figures, made of wood and wire and fabric, are available for $12 each, or in kit form for $15 for three figures.
