Our daughter has wanted a dollhouse for ages now, since playing with her cousin Simone’s when visiting, so we decided to splash out for her recent 4th birthday.
Yep, its huge. She was gobsmacked when it was taken out of the box. Three storeys and about 3 foot tall, it now resides on our landing. There were too many little accessories for it to stay in the playroom, the baby was bound to eat some or all of them, so its best kept away from her.
It didn’t come with any dolls, we had to spend a little extra to buy a couple of Barbie to live there and a old shaven haired Bratz regularly visits with teddy. But there’s a large range of stuff to go into it and she spends her time arranging and rearranging the layout, with her Barbies, chatting away. Fully equipped kitchen, bathroom and three other rooms all to be sorted: bed, bath, beanbag seat, dressing table, goblets, vases, coffee table, candlesticks, a lamp that switches on and off, a flushing noise loo and plenty more accessories.
Barbie can travel in style up the the staircase, her legs slot into a holder, a lever is rotated and she glides to the third floor. The sides of the house can fold in to minimise the space it takes up for moving or storing it and its fairly easy to manoeuver as isn’t too heavy.
We purchased ours in Smyths for approximately €130.
