Lea's Rainforest House.

Lea's Rainforest House is part of Lea's Collection and, like her, was retired at the end of 2016. The retail cost was $395.


Three walled hut on fake bamboo stilts. Square window in the back wall on the left side, framed with fake bamboo. Exterior of walls have fake wood pattern. Interior of walls are off-white, back wall has white flower and fern graphic on the right side near the floor. Floor is patterned to resemble linoleum, with turquoise diagonal grid lines and stylized turquoise and green flowers, with larger flowers in the spaces between lines, smaller flowers at line intersections, and lighter turquoise dots on lines between intersections. Front half of hut is styled to look like a porch, with fake bamboo posts extending vertically the height of the walls on each side, horizontally across the top, and smaller posts forming porch railings on either side of the front. Hut comes with a roof support bar made of fake bamboo; this attaches to the center of the horizontal post in front and the center of the top edge of the back wall. Two lime green half-oval shelves in the back left corner of the hut, the lower one about one third of the way up the window frame, the higher one about two thirds of the way up the window frame. Two sets of ridges on interior of the side walls for placing loft bed; lower position is just below the bottom of the window frame, upper position is a few inches above the top of the window frame.

Mosquito Netting[]

Two salmon-pink mosquito net curtains on fake bamboo curtain rods. Rods snap onto the frame and side walls near the top; curtains completely cover the side openings and hang to the hut floor.

Outdoor Shower[]

Multicolored plastic panel attached to right side of house. Panel is shaped like a rectangle with a semicircular top. Panel is printed in a turquoise stylized flower design on a salmon colored background and is edged in turquoise and green fake glass tiles. Gray plastic shower head apparatus in center of panel; has detachable main shower head and smaller handheld shower head joined by a turquoise hose. Panel has two hooks for hanging soap.

Reversible Scene[]

Two sided printed scene; slides into the window frame from the right side. One side shows a scene of a waterfall among rain forest greenery with two parrots on a branch to the left of the waterfall. The other scene is a moonlit bay with a silhouetted palm tree overhead in the foreground.


Hinged roof panel woven and fringed to resemble palm thatching. Roof has a framework of fake bamboo poles and rests on the roof support bar by means of three plastic pieces shaped to fit over the bar. Small hooks on each side on which can hang the hammock, the lantern, or the chime. There have been multiple negative reviews from customers who expected the roof to attach more firmly (e. g. roof falling off when doll is placed in hammock).


Cloth hammock swing. Fabric is pink with textured stripes of turquoise, orange, and purple woven in. Hangs by turquoise cords from a fake bamboo bar; cords form an upside down V above bar and are tied into a loop at the top so as to hang on one of the hut’s three hooks. In most photos, the hammock is shown hanging from the hook on the left side of the house, as using the center hook would block the main entrance and using the hook on the right side would block the shower. Hammock is sewn into a chair shape for the doll to sit in; there is not enough room for the doll to lie down.


Plastic light-up lantern (batteries included). Lantern is constructed of a lime green plastic disc at the bottom and a lime green plastic ring at the top of a clear plastic ovoid shape patterned with raised turquoise flowers. Lantern hangs by a loop of cord from any of the hut’s three hooks, but is usually shown hanging from the center hook.


Seashell wind chime constructed of five fake shells strung on a cord. Shells are (from top to bottom) tan, dark pink, yellow orange, purple, and salmon pink. Bottom end of cord is knotted to secure seashells; top end is tied into a loop to hang on a hook. In most photos, the chime is shown hanging from the right side hook in front of the shower.


Light bluish green tufted mattress. Fits on the loft bed.


Purple summer weight blanket. Woven design on blanket consisting of wavy lines and dots. The weave of the fabric is such that the blanket is reversible: one side is lighter purple with a darker purple pattern, the other side darker purple with a lighter purple design.

Loft Bed[]

Small gray plastic pegs on left and right sides for hanging things on such as the tongs. Two arched openings trimmed with molded tan bricks on the front; one above counter (bottom of opening is flush with counter) and one below cabinet. Lower opening is filled with plastic shaped to look like stacked logs; upper opening has light-up “coals” (needs three AAA batteries-not included) under a gray plastic grate. Shaped chimney above upper opening. Stylized tropical flower printed on chimney; flower is salmon colored with eight petals, surrounded by a solid yellow-green circle and a dotted turquoise circle. This flower shows up in several places throughout this set and Lea's whole collection and appears to be her personal emblem.
