Alison Jr. is a kit produced by Real Good Toys
And as I went to buy it an old memory kept popping up from a tv show I used to watch as a kid and teenager. It was this image:
Charles Addams Cartoon, Property of the Tee and Charles Addams Foundation
Yes!!! It is the Addams Family mansion (this is the cartoon version but the closest looking to the Alison Jr.)! One of my favorite old tv shows! So I just CAN NOT make this dollhouse without turning it into the Addams' Mini-Mansion. Thus, this blog is born.
I will be doing massive amounts of research (and movie watching) in the next month or so. Oh yes and hopefully some building as well - haha!
Here is the list I came up with today off the top of my head.... mind you this is just from my memory and I haven't gone back to sort out which was from the movie and which was from the tv show - and I haven't decided if I want to make that distinction either... those decisions will be made soon. Also - i have to make sure I am not mixing things up with the Munsters - I loved them too! Here's the list:
-Morticias conservatory with "Cleopatra" and trimmed roses
-Morticias wicker chair (tv show)
-Wednesday and pugsleys room with doll guillotine and electric chair
-Kitchen? with stop sign in corner (movie)?
-Gomez's library with books/ bear rug
-Thing's box and Thing himself
-"Beware of the Thing" sign
-Kitty?? (Lion) (tv show)
-His/hers nail beds?
-Trap door in Childrens room
-Gomez and Morticias room
-Fish/octopus tank (in conservatory)
-Lurch's PJ's and Night Cap
Rooms I def want:
Living room (entrance)
Uncle Festers Attic?
