Came across this one just the other day!  It's the McKinley on Family Guy in the first 30 seconds!

It's reversed and looks like the at was left off of the  end that doesn't have the tower.  I love the addition of a chimney.


I missed this when it was first posted. That's cool! A lot of the product images of the McKinley floating around are reversed for some reason. (Actually, it's reversed on Greenleaf's store.) The artist must have based it on one of those.

Don't forget the sister's McKinley in the Hallowe'en episode of CSI with the siblings afflicted with hypertrichosis.

Or the dollhouse from the House on Haunted Hill series.

Did anyone else watch Sharp Objects on HBO? The dollhouse is featured prominently in the story line.......even the shocking ending



I was going to binge watch it.  Spoiler alert to the attached links.

If you've ever watched Patriot Games with Harrison Ford, his daughter has a Beacon Hill in her bedroom.

I know this thread is old but I’m literally watching Patriot Games right now and said “Hey! Jack Ryan’s daughter has a really nice Beacon Hill!” :D

I saw a movie on tv twenty years ago and fell in love with the miniature furniture on the mantle. For years I couldn’t remember the name of the movie but remembered that Katharine Hepburn was in it. This weekend all chores came to a holt when I realized that movie was on tv. “Holiday” with Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant was on with the beautiful collection of a massive dining table and shelves displayed mini table settings and chinaware over the fireplace mantel in her “playroom”. Unfortunately, Katharine is not in this photo.

I’m reliving my childhood by rewatching Beverly Hills 90210 and I caught a Westville in an episode from Season 3. Dylan is having a fantasy about what his life would be like if he married Brenda — lots of kids — and their house is overrun with toys.

Did anyone catch the first episode of Creepshow? The second part is about something creepy in a dollhouse. It might put you off getting your kids a dollhouse and certainly you will look twice at picking up any dollhouse you want to buy from Craig's List. LOL

But the dollhouse in Creepshow is absolutely gorgeous. It opened on both sides and looked enormous. Creepy thing in the dollhouse and all, I'd have taken it. I saved some pics from the show:
