“ Manufacturer: Toys R Us / Type: Doll House Furniture „
My brother-in-law made a 1m high wooden doll house for his 2 daughters for last Christmas and asked everyone in the family to buy only wooden doll house furnitures for the girls as a present. I spent a great deal of time on the internet searching for the best quality on reasonable price and the only contender I found was Toys R Us. On Ebay you can buy plenty of furnitures (bathroom, kitchen, living room,etc -all come separately) for £16.99 buy it now, and there are a couple of used one coming up time to time but not very often, always reaching the £10 mark.I found a whole set for £9.99 but after reading about it I realized that it wasn't suitable for a 4 and 3yr old, the pieces were too tiny. Early Learning Centre does wooden doll house furniture for the same price, quality is excellent, I even went to the shop to have a look at it, and really liked it. At this point I was still very vary about the price,so did further research and found Toys R Us doing similar one to the ELC ones.

I used the store finder on the website as I wanted to avoid paying delivery charges (was looking for a code but couldn't come across with any), and for my biggest surprise there was one in London, on Old Kent Road, only a mile away from my house. We went there one Sunday to buy this product and the shop was really big,offering a huge range of toys. It wasn't very busy (it was in November) and the staff was very helpful,they directed us straight to the wooden toy areas where we found the bathroom set.
The bathroom set is £9.99 and I think it is good value for money. It has 7 pieces, including toilet, shower with stripy curtain,sink and mirror, bath with towels and bathmat. It is packed in a box of 18x23x6cm, and the box is definitely too big for the set. The set itself is wrapped individually in paper inside the box,and is high quality. It was made in China, it is not suitable for children under the age of 3 due to small parts. It says it on the box that the colour may vary from the one on the box but mine was exactly the same.
Toys RUs offering wooden doll house kitchen, living room, bedroom, study, children's bedroom, computer room, dining room as well from the same range.
The girls were very happy with the doll's house furniture and have been spending lots of time playing ,washing dolls, putting pretended make up on in front of the mirror, using the toilet, etc. It was a great buy and would recommend to anyone who is thinking about buying wooden doll house for their children/relatives. I think it also really helped the younger girl to use her finger more efficiently, as the small wooden buttons are quite tiny on the bath set. It is catchy and colourful,the only disadvantage is that if you are looking to buy the whole set than you need to spend around £100 not including the doll house itself.
