Okay, okay. I know these are not modern dollhouse collectibles..., but they are too cool to not post. I'm completely in love with these wood (keyaki, teak, walnut, and white ash) toys that are handmade in Japan by Takeji Nakagawa. Sadly, these are only available overseas at gallery showings, etc. The toys are mostly one-offs and not mass produced. The cost? $1,200 - $6,000. It's a good thing that I can't get a hold of these because I would buy every single one available. Take-G Toy's (they use an apostrophe) is made up of Mr. Nakagawa and his wife, thus the inability to mass produce. Anyway, these are beautiful toys!
