1:24 dollhouse scale (or half scale) is gaining ground in the UK and Europe as a popular miniature scale. This scale is more commonly found across scale hobbies, with "G" or garden scale railways producing many inexpensive figures and details in scales from 1:22 to 1:24. This is also a common play scale for children, as Playmobil houses and accessories are in this scale to go with the railroads and vehicles produced by Playmobil. There is also a range of inexpensive 'puzzle' houses available in this scale. 1:24 scale is also fairly popular for high-end die-cast car collectables, so street scenes are much easier to construct in 1:24 vs 1:12 scale.
In the dolls house artisan market, it remains somewhat of a niche with some artisans in Europe producing duplicates of their 1:12 scale range in 1:24 scale as well. 1:24 scale items are becoming more widely available commercially, but the range is still limited compared to 1:12 scale. In 1:24 scale, a doorway is usually 3 to 4 inches (7.5to 10cm) high, with male dolls standing between 2 1/2 to 3 inches (6.5 to 7.5 cm) tall.
