Item details

Now available In Imperial (Traditional inches) or METRIC! Select your preferred unit of measure when you checkout. You can order either one or both. The Imperial Rule is printed in dark green and the Metric version is dark purple so you can easily tell them apart at a glance.

The Fig Rule is a Dollhouse Miniature Scale Converter, Measuring Tool. If I could only have three tools in my tool box this would be one of them! This is a MUST have for any dollhouse collector or craftsperson. It accurately converts inches into 3 popular scales; 1:12 scale, 1:24 scale and 1:48" scale.

How it Works:
There is a different scale on each of the three edges of the ruler. 1" Scale is a ratio of 1:12 meaning 1" inch in dollhouse size equals 12" in real life. This scale is considered normal "dollhouse" size. Notice in the photos the whiskey bottle is 6" inches across if it were life sized, therefore too large to use as a regular whiskey bottle but it could be used as an oversized bottle in your scene. The flexible plastic makes it easy to measure curved objects too!

How To Use it:
1. Select the side of the ruler for the size you are collecting / working in.
2. Hold up any item to your ruler. It immediately shows you how large the item is in your chosen size setting, no math required! It is so easy and wonderful to use.

There is a handy list in the center of the ruler giving standard sizes of common dollhouse items like table and chair heights and more. The convenient size of this tool makes it easy to take it with you on the go or in your toolbox. Take it with you when you shop to see if the item you found will fit into your selected size collection. Made of a translucent and flexible plastic, only 4 5/8" inches across (11.7 cm).

It is a great gift for anyone, men or women.

I try to ship within 24-48 hours of payment. I also try to recycle shipping materials. So your item may arrive in well used packaging. However, I don't reuse any packaging that is soiled, smelly, smoky, dirty, etc.

I use the United States Postal Service (USPS) for all my shipping. You can track your package at their website link below using either the Delivery Confirmation or Customs Declaration number I send you when your item is mailed.

USA Customers: You will normally receive a Delivery Confirmation number from me once your order is mailed.

You will receive a Customs Declaration number from me once your order is mailed. This will track the package only until it leaves the US. This is because other countries do not scan the package numbers. I do a lot of international shipping and only on 2 occasions the package was scanned in another country.

Please allow additional time to receive your package. Normally you will receive your item in 2 weeks however, it can take up 4-6 weeks for your package to arrive. I have no control over this. Often times the package can be delayed in customs. Please be patient. I want you to receive your package just as fast as you do!
