A very, very, very fun house!

Toys are a part of one’s childhood that hold fond and happy memories. I have (most) of my childhood toys and even some that belonged to my mom! I can’t wait to pass them along to my kids. I am a Barbie collector and had an obsession playing with Barbies growing up. My father even made hand-crafted Barbie furniture out of scrap wood, while my grandmother sewed blankets and pillows from left-over pieces of cloth and lace.

That’s why when I came across Brinca Dada (BREEN-kuh DEY-duh) I fell in love instantly! Interestingly, the company takes its name from the Portuguese word for fun and games, brincadeira. Check out the Emerson House:

“Inspired by the flat roofs and organic flow of Richard Neutra’s Kaufmann Desert House and the ultra-modern stone, glass, and steel home that A. Quincy Jones designed for Gary Cooper, Brinca Dada’s Emerson House incorporates beautiful design and exciting play patterns while elevating the traditional toy dollhouse design.”

Founder Douglas Rollins and architect Tim Boyle created the beautiful Emerson House (30″ x 21″ x 18″), using natural materials with the environment in mind: solar panels on the house provide energy for LED recessed lights and only non-toxic and lead-free wood stains and paints were used in both the interior and exterior of the house. Keeping with the style of the house, you can also decorate with the duo’s specially designed furniture:

While toys like these are more expensive than what you might normally buy, they represent a new kind of mind-set: quality, sustainability and longevity. Depending on how many kids or grand-kids you have, the house will be in your family for a long time, and can be something passed on from one generation to the next. Rather than buying lots of inexpensive plastic toys every year, you could buy one really good, eco-friendly toy that will be enjoyed by all! This is a house you and you kids will love to play with for generations to come.
