Traditional Wooden Dolls House with 100 Pieces
Advantages: Everything About This House Amazes.
Disadvantages: Minor Things Like Doors Not Opening
I bought this Dolls House for my Daughter last christmas, as she had been asking constanty for one and in my opinion, every little girl should have one - no matter how big or small the child or the dolls house.
I had been searching for one for around a month before I found this. I was delighted with it as every dolls house that I had seen came with limited or no furnature. Researching furnature separatly I found that I might aswell buy a much more expensive house just to get a decent amount of furnature as I found it rather dear to buy separatley.
You can imagine my delight when I found this house advertised in Toys R Us for 49.99, down from 99.99 complete with 100 pcs furnature.
The house itself is flat pack (although very easy to assemble) and stands around 70cm tall 20cm deep and 55cm wide. It is four floors high which turn into 7 rooms including one large attic with 3 sets of stairs. The dolls house opens on hinges with the front of the house separated into one third and two thirds of its front when opened and when closed, stays cosed due to the small magnets strategically located on the inside of the doors and house. Also the front panel of the rof lifts off as it is not attatched, it just sits using the two jigsaw piece type half circle ledges.
The front has 8 traditional windows (5 large, 3 smaller) with window ledges above and below. The roof has a tile effect front rim and there are two chimneys on the top of the roof.
The 100pc furnature (1:16 Scale) are all fully assembles and packed into various cardboard boxes relating to which room they are for and labelled accordingly.
It consists of a family (Mummy, Daddy and 3 Kids) with wooden bodies, wollen hair and fabric clothing.
The Living Room - One Large and Two Smaller Sofa, complete with cushions, Round Side Table, TV, Stereo ans Speakers, Telephone, TV Cabinet, Standing Lamp (with pull cord) and BookCase with 4 sets of 5 Books.
The Kitchen - Sink (with attatched fluffy tea towel), Cooker, Washing Machine, Fridge Freezer, Swing Bin, Dining Cabinet and various Pots and Pans.
The Dining Room - Dining Table and 4 Chairs (with tablecloth and chair cushions), Glasses, Plates and Cups, Vase with a Flower in, Cabinet and Wine Bottles.
Childrens Rooms - Bunk Beds with Ladder (also bedding and pillows), Rocking Chair (with cushion), Rocking Crib, Cabinet and various little toys including a Toy Train.
Parents Bedroom - Wardrobe, Dresser (with round mirror), Double Bed (with Bedding and Pillows), Alarm Clock, Two Bedside Tables and Lamps and a Small Stool.
Bathroom - Bath (with blue fluffy towel attatched), Toilet, Toilet Roll Holder (with wooden toilet roll attatched with gold elastic), Mop and Bucket, Sink and various bottles, i.e. shampoo and bubble bath.
To buy all of this separarate, it would have cost much more than the original price of 99.99, it is an absolute bargain and is played with by my daughter nearly every day.
I painted the house myself - and all of the furnature (glutton for punishment) in pinks and purples and when I had finished it looked incredible (if I do say so myself!). It can be painted with ease as the wood is not treated and only takes one coat of paint.
The only things in my opinion which lets the house down is the fact that the doors on the wardrobe and some of the cupboards open but none of the others do and the toilet seat doesn't lift up. Also the house is rather big for all of the furnature, not that my daughter minds as she can incorporate some of her other toys into the fun aswell.
I think that this is the only toy that I do not nag her to put away because I know that if she doesn't then I get to have my time and can arrange it the way that I want to.
Suitable for children big and small!! A real diamond of a Dolls House and an absolute Bargain!!
