I was looking for a dollhouse for my girls for the playroom. This one is amazing. There are many more expensive and difficult to assemble options on the market, but I have loved everything we've ever owned by Melissa & Doug, and I knew this would be a great fit for us. It is a beautifully decorated doll house and the details are beautiful. Although I bought this for my kids, it could easily display collector's material as well. It was much easier to assemble than I ever dreamed. There is even a video which is great for people like my husband who learn better from watching than reading directions. I would most definitely recommend this product. I believe it will last and my girls will enjoy it for many many years to come!
This is a very solidly built and pretty doll house. It was a little complex for me to assemble (I hate assembly) but not too bad for a doll house. It is a prepainted Victorian style house that is a joy to look at. The outside is a pretty gray and pink and the rooms are painted different styles. The dollhouse does not come with furniture, but I like picking out the furniture any way. I have always wanted to try building a dollhouse and this was a great entry level house. I have a friend who has two daughters and she just flipped when she saw my house and plans on getting one for her family. I highly recommend this because of the quality build and appearance and relative ease of assembly.
Though assembly is a bit of a pain, this is a high quality doll house that could be passed down for years. Each room has a different color scheme and style. It does not come with furniture or dolls, my girls like to use the 4 inch LOL dolls. It's already been through a lot of wear and tear but the inside paint and decor has stayed in tact.
