Last year my father in law made my daughter a beautiful dolls house for her to play with but to also keep as a sort of heirloom as well. It's absolutely beautiful and has three storeys, with two bedrooms, a sitting room, dining room, kitchen and bathroom. What's lovely is that all of the rooms are full of beautiful furniture too. They didn't make the frame, this was from a Dolls House Emporium and the house variety was called Wentworth, for those of you who know abut dolls houses. They did however wall paper all the rooms and put tiles on the roof, put in carpet, chose the furniture and added a little family of dolls to go into the house. They did not go as far as make the furniture either which I know some people who make doll's houses like to do but they did furnish it with some lovely Plan Toys furniture.
According to their website, "PlanToys® is proving that it is possible to maintain superior quality and safety standards in addition to following a path of environmental and social responsibility.

Our toys enable children to play, learn and become closer to nature."
When my in-laws made this for my little girl I had just had a bay, her little brother and so they though it was a really sweet idea to include a nursery in the dolls house. I thought this was really nice and the room is decorated really sweetly and to go along with that they bought this lovely nursery set of furniture. The set includes a three drawer chest, a crib with a mobile attached, a high chair, a stroller and a baby! The set is wooden and really goes with the look and feel of the dolls house which I like. It's really well made too, quite solid and well put together so you really feel like you have a good quality product, even though it is just dolls furniture. The thing that my little girl likes best about this set is that it comes with a little baby doll so it's perfect to use with this set. She really enjoys putting the baby to sleep in the cot, wheeling it about in the pushchair and putting it on top of the chest of drawers to change its nappy.
What I really like are the little touches that are included with this set. For example, the mobile over the cot is a really sweet idea and it makes my little girl think she has a real baby and is putting her in a real cot just like her little brother went in. All these pieces are light and moveable so you can set them up in the room however you wish and my little girl is always re-rranging them and changing the room around to accommodate the baby.
This is a wonderful little set for anyone who has a dolls house.
Designed to welcome a new baby into the house, this set includes chest, cot, stroller and, most importantly, a baby!
