What Scale Do I Have?
One inch scale (also called 1/12 scale) means 1 inch equals a foot or twelve inches. If your adult dolls are 5 to 6 inches tall or your doll house rooms are about 8 to 10 inches tall, you have 1 inch scale or 1/12 scale miniatures.
Half Scale (also called 1/24 scale) means 1/2 inch equals a foot. Again, the example: If your adult dolls are 2-1/2 to 3 inches tall and your rooms are 5 to 6 inches high you have half scale.
Dollhouse Miniatures also come in Quarter Scale and Dollhouse for Dollhouse Scale, but these are very tiny scales that are more popular with long-time miniaturists and miniature crafters. Similar to 1" and 1/2" scale, 1/4" (also called 1/48 scale) means 1/4 inch equals a foot. Adult dolls are 1-1/4" to 1-1/2" tall and rooms are generally 2-1/2" to 3" high. Dollhouse for Dollhouse (or 144th) Scale is exactly what its name says. These wonderful minis can fit in a full size teacup or your 1" scale dollhouse!
One inch scale is the most popular scale, but the smaller scales are gaining popularity among long-time miniaturists who are running out of space!
With Which Scale Should I Start?
Half scale takes up much less space, but does not provide the same detail you get with One Inch scale. There is also a better selection of 1" scale items at this time; however, current demand for half scale items is generating a greater selection of the smaller scale. Unfortunately, half scale items aren't half the price of their 1" scale counterpart. Generally speaking, both scales are similarly priced.
