Bringing attention to sets like this, no matter how odd they may seem to contemporary eyes, is what I love about the random set feature.

Hey, Huwbot? Did you accidentally use a set from Barbie Dolls? Haha. Man. Glad Lego has drifted away from these kind of sets.

The antiquated oddity of the figures is nothing compared to that roof. What on Earth.

Belville, and then Scala. I'm waiting for a Galidor random set.

1998.. The dark days of LEGO.. Where average sets had a piece count of 18.

Well whatever, this is not a bad color palette and structure of a house set so wouldn't mind if any future Duplo or Junior set do st similiar.

Owned by 56 members... must be one of the least appreciated sets around... ;)

My sister had a scala house and we absolutely loved playing with it together when we were kids. I'd use my regular bricks to build extra walls and more sophisticated structures.

Awww, a Scala house!! I'm probably one of the few AFOLs who loved these sets, I was born in 1992 and Scala brought me to Lego personally :) I was never that much into Barbies and regular dolls, but I loved the mix between the building and "interior design" + the storytelling with dolls aspects of this. I'd still get every Scala set I see for sale around me :D I personally thought that Belville was the lowest point of the "girls" Lego stuff, but I'm sure that has a few fans still around too...

Judging by the picture, the "sunshine home" is actually on the surface of the sun itself

Reminds me of my Sindy house from the 80s (still regret throwing that away... the toilet made a flushing sound!)... love the colours! But, 96 dollars for 168 pieces - phew!!

Why did LEGO do this.
This set has nothing to do with LEGO.

On the one hand, I acknowedge that these sorts of dollhouse sets that minimized the actual building experience were not a particularly good brand fit for LEGO. It's great that the current girl-oriented themes are more faithful to the traditional LEGO building experience.

That said… I think full-size dolls are an avenue I wouldn't mind LEGO exploring again in the future, but in a different way. Like, seeing the awesomeness of the LEGO Elves character designs with more human proportions as they are depicted in a lot of animations and promotional art made me realize how great it would be to have full-size dolls of them. And as a long-time fan of LEGO buildable figure themes like Bionicle, Hero Factory, Knights' Kingdom, etc. I think it would be really brilliant if LEGO could come up with a style of doll where you actually get to build the characters and their outfits. It would be a very LEGO sort of twist on the type of dress-up play that fashion dolls have always had.

It looks like an accident happened in a fruit juice processing plant!

When I came to Brickset today to see the random set I scrolled past this at first, then did a double take.
