Look at this life-size doll house

Did you ever look at your dolls' house and wish you could shrink down, like Alice in Wonderland, and run through the rooms and play with the tiny plastic plates of fake food?

Us too. Which is why we were fascinated by this life-size dolls' house which is currently standing in Grand Central Station, NYC.

But isn't a life-size dolls' house just a house? Not quite. This one, built as a promotion by the American retailer Target, opens up down the middle, meaning all of the inside can be viewed at once. We also assume it has no plumbing.

Can we have a real-life Sim house next?
