Hello Neighbor 2 is one of the best puzzle games with the feel of a great horror experience as well. Much like the first game, it has tons of puzzles and secrets to uncover, all while trying to avoid the creepy and adaptive AIs patrolling around. A big part of the game requires locating important keys to locked doors hidden in spots that require some critical thinking or searching around to open, such as the dollhouse. The dollhouse located in the kitchen on day 1 hides a key that you need, but to open it, you will need the three dolls that fit on its pedestals.
All dollhouse figure locations in Hello Neighbor 2 (Day 1)
Examining the dollhouse closer, you will realize it is missing three figures or dolls that fit into the pedestals on top of it. You can find a picture example of what you need hanging right on the front of the fridge. This will reveal you need three different dolls: the girl doll, the boy doll, and the neighbor doll. You will want to keep this picture in mind to further solve the puzzle, but first, you'll need to locate the dolls.
The Girl Doll
The girl doll is the easiest to find, hidden right in a crevice in the wall directly to the right of the dollhouse. There will be a plank nailed over it, which you will need to pry off with a crowbar. You should still have one handy from the garden shed, but if not, you can find one in the room where the boy doll is hidden. Once you pry off the plank, you can grab the girl doll hidden inside.
The Neighbor Doll
If you look above the hiding wardrobe in the kitchen, you will notice a vent where the neighbor doll is hidden. However, you won't be able to reach him from this side. To reach him, you will need to head to the opposite wall, where there is another hiding wardrobe. Above it is a painting that you can move to the side and find the same vent. You can climb up on the wardrobe and get inside by crouching down. Then you can snatch up the neighbor doll to place on the dollhouse.
The Boy Doll
The boy doll requires a little more action to acquire since he is located in a secret room right off the main entry. To find the way to open it, you will have to move the painting on the wall directly under the stairs to uncover a dial with a three-letter code. To figure out what the letters need to be, you'll need to walk into the room to the left of the stairs and turn on the TV set. You'll notice the TV only stays on one screen with the words Nouds of Tanure. You can use this to figure out the code, being: N-O-T. Dial these correct letters, and the secret room will automatically open. The boy doll is directly inside on a shelf.
Now that you have all the dolls head back to the dollhouse. You'll need to place the dolls on the correct pedestals to open up the dollhouse. Looking back at the picture hanging on the fridge will reveal precisely where they need to go: Girl, Boy, Neighbor. In this order, the dollhouse will open and give you another key to the basement.
