it is ... Okay.. Pros: Somewhat sturdy, and not plastic, which i like. Cons: Somewhat sturdy (the top level has popped off more then once) and the holes for the staircases are basically 75% of the "living area". I think this may be lower-priced because it was an error? It is really annoying that standard furniture does not fit because the holes for the staircases are so dang large. Overstock does not show pics of the interior like other sites do, and this might be why.
Kids love it. It's pretty sturdy, though the roof sometimes slips off. It's pretty and colorful. I'd prefer that there be more 'walking space' for the dolls. I intended to use 'loving family dolls'. They are okay, but a bit too large for the furniture. Overall, the children that come to "Grandma's House" enjoy it.
I bought this house for a little girl turning five. She was not really interested in the house and spent more time playing with the boxes and bubble wrap that the dollhouse came in. But her little brother (two years old) had a nice time playing with the house. The roof had some small damage when I opened it, probably done in transit. The next day, the little boy pushed the house to the floor and broke the roof. The rest of the house is still intact and sturdy.
The house seems fairly sturdy .Nice to see wood product instead of cheap plastic. Pretty colors and small pieces pleasing to a little girl to pretend with. Only issue was the top floor slightly off in fit but added a little glue ...fine!
This is a beautiful dollhouse and our granddaughters love it! However, it was a pain to assemble, and I have loads of experience assembling bikes, toys, etc. The roof is still slightly askew, even after taking it apart after the initial assembly and starting over.
This is a beautifully built, but simple dollhouse. I love that it is made of all thick wood and will stand up to the beating that my kids will put it through. And the furniture an accessories are super cute too.

Another fine Mellisa and Doug product.....we have many including puzzles, treasure boxes, etc. This dollhouse is extremely sturdy, has great furniture, and will provide many hours of entertainment for my daughter. The only thing that would have been nice is if the people were included with the house.
