Doll House illusion is a stage illusion where a child's small doll house is shown empty then later produces a young lady.

Premiered by Frederick Culpitt around 1926. It was one of the first illusions of its time that did not require a stage trap, could be performed surrounded and packed flat. The Doll House illusion was most likely inspired by Servais LeRoy's illusion "Stolen Jam" (Also known as just "Jam" and "Palanquin").

By 1927, it had become very popular and was being performed by Virgil and Jack Gwynne.

The illusion was included in Tarbell Course in Magic, Vol. 6 (1954).
