DIY Mini Rain Forest House - Lea

After a lot of work I finally finished my mini GOTY 2016 Lea Clark's Rain Forest House! Shelly's review of the full size version helped a lot as did American Girl website and the AG Wiki.

This project includes a LOT of buttons and beads.
I couldn't get the grill and lantern to actually light up, but both have shiny orange beads inside to catch the light.

The window scene is reversible so I don't need to find a place for the scene I'm not using, and the fish is attached to the fryer.

This was a very fun project!


  1. This looks so good! Mini Lea looks like she'll really enjoy it.

    1. Thank you! Mini Josefina (you can see her in the second picture) looks a bit jealous. Don't know what to make for her as I am not up for building a whole mini Rancho! I also have mini Maryellen, if she gets an Airstream camper I might make one for her.

  2. Great job. I'm working on making my own mini lea rainforest house. My mini house is kind of different from the ag style. I'm wondering what did you use to make the table?

  3. It's just a circle of cardboard. The legs are pieces of a bamboo skewer. I drew a wood pattern on the cardboard and just hot glued the legs.

  4. Very nice! I made one earlier this year. I'm working on a blog and video review. Here is my blog! Thanks for sharing!
