Dolls House Furniture Part Four


Another rainy day was spent photographing the rest of the furniture and packing it up into boxes again. As there is a lot of  this tiny furniture I have decided to split it into two posts.

In this post I’ll show you some furniture from Blue Box in the smaller 1:24 scale.

Blue Box

Blue Box furniture was made by the Blue Box Toy Company of Hong Kong. This company was founded in 1952 by Peter Chan Pui.  As well as dolls and dolls houses Blue Box made a large range of other types of toys including toy soldiers, model farms and die-cast models.Unlike many of the other toy companies I’ve read about Blue Box is still operating as a toy manufacturer now headed by CEO David Chan the son of the founder.

Here is a link to their website.

Naomi and I had a lot of Blue Box toys as children. They were relatively inexpensive and often sold in stores like Woolworth’s or in local newsagents and toy stores both in England and here in Australia.

Naomi certainly had Blue Box dolls house furniture as a child. Several of these pieces look very familiar to me. These three in particular.


If you are thinking that some of this furniture looks familiar to something else you have seen on this blog you are quite right.

Triang and Blue Box chairs
Blue Box furniture is a miniature version of Triang Spot On.
A lot of the Blue Box furniture is exactly the same as the Triang range. Most Blue Box furniture that I have seen is clearly marked with the company name.
Here is some more Blue Box. After I had taken these photos and put everything back in the box I found 2 dressing table drawers in another box. These have now been returned to their rightful place.

Let’s see how it looks in my Chad Valley dolls house.

  1. Doesn’t the Blue Box furniture look lovely in the Chad Valley house. I think the style and colours look great together. It all looks like it is begging for a doll family to move in though. Sadly we have few the right size for the lovely doll houses at the moment.

  2. Reblogged this on Shed on the Pond's Blog and commented:
    I made a few mistakes when I started collecting Triang Furniture, buying Blue Box furniture made in Hong Kong. Being new to Triang Furniture collecting, not much on the Web and very few books to refer to, I made a few buying errors. When you put each piece next to each other, it is easy to see the difference. I found a very interesting Blog Post on ‘Dolls Dolls Dolls’, with lots of good pictures, and information about Blue Box Furniture……
