The Jennys Home modular dolls' house system was produced in the 1960s in conjunction with Homes & Gardens Magazine. Made by Tri-ang, the individual sets allowed young girls to slowly build up a collection of rooms and funiture to create almost any design of their choice. A system that could be turned from an apartment block to a bed-sit, Jennys Home was a highly flexible, modern toy that helped to inspire future home makers.

This particular set includes one large room and the original packaging.
