Lilliput Play Homes, based in Finleyville, Pennsylvania, sell 30 signature playhouses including the top-of-the-range Grand Victorian playhouse which costs $19,999 (about £12,900). They ship the homes all over the world to parents eager to give their kids a taste of the real world in miniature. All of the playhouses have lavish interiors with accessories and furniture - and some even have working electricity for air conditioning should the kids get too hot.
"We had one customer who had made their money in trucking who ordered an entire 'main street' for their child down in Florida which set them back $100,000 (£65,000)" said owner Steve Chernicky. "That was a one-off, but was a significant order."
