What is the story behind the Leslieville Doll House and has anyone ever seen inside?


What is the story with the dollhouse?

After Shirley Sumaiser’s husband passed away many years ago she made it her hobby to fill her front yard with dolls, stuffed animals and other interesting bits and pieces.  The Leslieville Doll house is probably the most talked about home in Leslieville, making its rounds on social media and online channels for as long as I can remember. She has even garnered worldwide press about her home. Her garden attracts tourists and photographers all year round and she changes it often to go with the season. Thanks for your efforts Shirley!

Here is the big question: 

Shirley we can see inside? Shirley, we can see inside? 

(No, you can’t and don’t call me Shirley)



Where is the dollhouse? 

37 Bertmount Avenue. Toronto, Ontario M4M 2X8 (Queen and Jones)
