She first tries to wrestle the model into the trunk of her compact car.

It won’t fit.

Her would-be theft began when she walked into a warehouse and carried out the model, valued at $1,000, the Kingsport Police Department said in a statement.

After the back seat fail, the woman “abandoned her loot and drove away.”

The dollhouse is an intricate dwelling meant to be lovingly furnished over a long period of time.

"It's one of those houses where the little girl would spend her lifetime decorating it," department spokesman Tom Patton told Thursday. "It's not a toy." 

Anyone with information about the women’s identity is urged to contact the Kingsport Police Department.
