If this is your first attempt at a dollhouse, I wouldn't suggest this kit. It's a little tricky to build and much more time consuming than other kits. But for any miniature enthusiast, Greenleaf/Corona kits are the way to go. There is so much allowance to finish it whichever way you want. I even was able to make the foyer huge by taking out a kitchen wall. Also, you may want to look online from other miniaturists to see how they finish and assemble these kits. It may save you a lot of frustration. And this is the best price I've ever seen.
The product was shipped quickly and arrived in excellent condition. I rated the item 4 stars because of the difficulty level of putting it together. It can be done, however it is very time consuming and well over the 40 hours of the approximated time given to complete. It is a beautiful dollhouse and will be truly treasured once finished!
Great price and fast delivery! I haven't started putting it together yet but I've looked through the directions and the box. The materials are the same quality as the more expensive kits I've done. The directions look simpler but do have less detail so they might be harder for a beginner.
ok, so I haven't started to build this kit yet. Looks a little complicated. I need to make some room to spread out & organize the parts. It seems to be a well made kit. Die cut luan plywood.This kit comes with shingles & some other things. Looks like when it's done it will be really sweet.
A very impressive thingbesides the overall quality of this kit is overstocks REALLY FAST SHIPPING. I had the kit in my home in 3 days. That's amazing. Also the price.This is WWWWWWW
AAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYY cheap. I priced these out at a local hobby shop & they wanted over $225 for a kit that was smaller & honestly seemed not as nice. This is an awesome deal. But don't misunderstand. This is a serious project only to be undertaken if you have a good deal of patience. That said, enjoy.
I bought this kit about a year and a half ago and after reading the reviews (a couple of which did warn that it was not for beginners!) decided to buy it anyway even though I've never made a dollhouse before. I was so overwhelmed when I first got it that after assembling some of the windows, I put it away for over a year! I've recently had a small break from work and spent a couple of months finishing the project. Overall...it was a good experience and I do like the final project. Although, be advised that if you have never built a dollhouse before, don't get this one (don't ignore those reviews like I did!). The kit comes in like 20 sheets with pre-punched pieces...many of which fall out easily and get lost. I got smart and began labeling those pieces with pencil and setting them aside. Also be careful as many of the smaller pieces are very delicate and flimsy and many fell apart and had to be repaired. I also found that when putting some of the major pieces together, they didn't actually fit like the kit said it would and the roof pieces that are supposed to bend after getting wet...well, they don't bend, no matter how hard we tried. I had to get very creative at times to get pieces to fit together like the pictures and even had to adjust the house a bit when pieces just didn't do what they were supposed to. This could have been my beginners lack of skill, although I did have my father help out and he has built many dollhouses and he couldn't get pieces to work right either. So, while I do like it and I'm proud of my house when I look at it...I don't think I would build it again. Way too frustrating and too time consuming.

This is my first dollhouse kit, so I have nothing to compare to, but I was disappointed with it literally right out of the box.
The materials are flimsy. The packing box was sturdier than the wood. It's thin and splinters easily.
This particular product was obviously repackaged. All the pieces were dumped into a large plain packing box. Considering the instructions refer to pictures on the box, I'm sure this is not the original packaging. Also, many of the pieces were broken after having been handled in such a manner. Many of the smaller pieces had become detached from their frames - and one of the first instructions is to not remove pieces from frames until you are ready to use them or you won't know what pieces they are (all the piece number are on the frames).
The kit includes a single 4"x6" piece of sand paper, which it recommends you attach to a block of wood for easier sanding. The problem is many of the pieces are far to small to be sanded with a sanding block. Not to mention you will need much more than a single piece of sand paper, especially considering how rough and splintered the wood is.
Since this is marketed as a beginner's dollhouse kit with "efficiency in mind" I'd say the instructions could be clearer.
I am still hoping to salvage this and make something beautiful out of it, but it's proving to be a more frustrating hobby than I had expected.

This is our first time with a dollhouse kit. The Lily Dollhouse kit is very challenging, but the materials are strong and solid, and there are endless possiblities with our decorating design. The product was delivered timely and in great condition. Lot's of fun with kids who are learning patience and how to keep a steady hand. I would recommend this kit to anyone with kids who like assembling models and such, but they absolutely need supervision with this kit.
Did the product fit true to size? Exactly.
How is the quality of the product? Good quality materials. All wood, sturdy.
