Dollhouse Miniatures Competition on TV Champion

I found this video on the internet and thought you all might enjoy it. I'm not sure how many of you have watched this, but it's a Japanese dollhouse miniature competition.

The video clip takes about 45 mins long, but it is interesting and I find this really rare.

I found another one on a real cake competition, which I'm sure my friends who bake in real life would like it. And maybe the rest would find it very enjoyable too. I loved it. So perhaps that will be the next video!

Maybe you don't have 45 minutes to spare, and so here is a summary which you can then decide if you want to spend 45 mins watching this :)

Also it might come in handy for my English speaking friends who want to know what's going on.


The famous Japanese show "TV Champion" hosted a competition for dollhouse miniaturists. There were 4 contestants.

Round 1: Each participant was to pick a shop along one of the designated streets and make a dollhouse miniature version out of the shop.
Shops picked include a Japanese Furniture Shop, Flower Shop, Men Apparel Shop and Italian Restaurant.

The top 3 moved into Final Round.

Final Round: Each participant was to create a miniature scene from a Fairy Tale/Animation/Comic book.
Scenes made include Japanese comic "Tomorrow's Joe", Three Little Pigs and Alice in Wonderland.

In case you were wondering what happened in the end, the winner was invited to the TV station, but the person ended up sick so he couldn't make it. He said his face was swollen 3 times the original size that he just could not appear on TV. I thought it was quite funny they made a cardboard version of the winner and put it on the throne.

Note: There is a 11 second commercial in the front before the actual video clip starts.


  1. Cool! Thank you for sharing the link and for explaining the story behind the cardboard "winner" :o) I will watch it!!!

  2. Wow! He so totally deserved to be the winner! The mechanical items that he so painstakingly created were great but his humor and style is really great too!

  3. Hey Amber!

    I'm so glad you enjoyed this video clip! Yes I think the man was so cool and his three little pigs scene was amazing!!

    I found another cake baking one, though it's not dollhouse miniatures related but that is another one which is really enjoyable and fun to watch. I'm going to translate that one too, so people can understand what's going on :)
