Sure, it sounds cheesy, but it’s actually kinda cool. The kids will love it—and it’s a guilty pleasure for many grown-ups, too. Miniature World is a collection of dozens of dioramas featuring teeny-tiny figures enacting scenes from famous battles, novels, fairy tales, outer space, and more. There are incredibly detailed Victorian dollhouses, including two of the world’s biggest, a vast three-ring circus, and, best of all, a miniature Canadian Pacific Railway running all the way across a miniature historic Canada. Plus, at the push of a button, you can make lights flash, bells ring, and the trains run. How much fun is that?
