Kit for a Borrowers' Home in Miniature
This kit includes all materials for making what you see in the picture above, plus many details that aren't visible. The home is situated in a "crawl space" under an imaginary floor, its walls being the beams supporting the floor.
On the left is a storage room, with useful items being kept at hand. In the middle the mother is knitting at her table, the father is making shoes at his workbench (once a child's ABC block), and in between them their daughter Arrietty is almost hidden behind her huge diary.
On the right is Arrietty's bedroom, the bed made from a jewel box, its canopy from a cigar box, and her chest of drawers from a matchbox.
Details like stamps for pictures and a ring for a tiara are there too, just as in the book.
Some of the tinier items are provided ready-made, and full instructions and materials will allow you to make the rest. You can also adapt the kit to fit a setting of your own: under a window seat, perhaps.
The kit as described above costs $35, including a detailed instruction booklet. Postage is $5.
Kit for What the Borrowers Borrowed
This kit gives you a chance to restore in your 1/12 scale dollhouse the items the borrowers used. There are instructions and materials to make a 1/12 scale jewellery box, a diary and pencil, a cigar box, a funnel, spools of thread, ABC blocks, a pocket watch, and some matchboxes.
This kit costs $15 (plus $2 postage), or you can buy the two for $50 (plus $5 postage).
Kit to make the Borrowers themselves
These figures are made of wood, wire, and fabric, and are fully posable. The techniques used are a little different from those in my other doll kits, and slightly more tricky, but people who've tried them have produced excellent results.
The $15 kit includes the three figures pictured here. Postage is $2.
All three kits come to $65, plus $5 postage.
