Enter the Dollhouse

There once was a woman who obtained something so valuable it was both precious and dangerous. Unwilling to destroy it, she hid it somewhere no one would find it: shrunk inside a child's dollhouse. She entered the portal and stored it somewhere inside with the key to the dollhouse before they could get their hands on it. Since then she's gone missing. We need it back. Find the key. Fair warning, staying in the Dollhouse after the portal closes does have it's lasting effects. Escape in 60 minutes or you'll never be the same again.
