CT Mom Creates 'Do-It-Yourself' Doll Furniture Called 'Smalltown Flats'

Putting ideas into play.

It's a mantra that drives Trumbull mom, Alison Zajac, to create kits that allow parents and kids to share a moment together...and make a memory.

We first met Zajac during this Mommy Minute segment in 2014, as she showed viewers/readers her Easter Grass-Kit which enables children to grow real grass in their Easter baskets.

She's at it again, debuting a new venture called Smalltown Flats.

"It's a line of slotted doll furniture that is decorate-able," says this mother of two girls.  "It comes flat-packed and you slide the pieces together like a puzzle."  The furniture - a bed, booster seat, couch and loveseat - fits an American Girl doll.

Zajac is aiming to give kids - ages 6 and up - a lesson in creativity, architecture and engineering as they embark on a fun activity.

Made from a mostly recycled material that is harder than cardboard, kids can assemble and disassemble this furniture over and over, making clean-up a breeze.  Zajac also offers shoppers an acrylic paint, allowing kids to cover what they previously painted.  They can begin again and easily come-up with a new look for their furniture.

This is Zajac's third venture.  Her entrepreneurial spirit began with Sandy Feet which encourages families "to create vacation fun" by making casts of their feet while at the beach.  "All of our products are classic," says Zajac who has more ideas planned for the future.  "I think they will stand the test of time."

Smalltown Flats - which ranges in price from $20.00 to $30.00 - is available on Zajac's web site.
