The dollhouse if fabulous. I had a really hard time finding a dollhouse that did not have everything in it pink and/or purple. The colors are very neutral and the wood furniture and people promote your child's own imagination. The product is great quality, as well. This is the second piece of children's 'furniture' I've purchased from overstock.com. I had purchased this a few weeks before Christmas and was pleased it arrived in a box that a child would not be alerted to. I left it in the box, unopened until Christmas eve. When I opened it to assemble, the actual dollhouse box had been previously opened and taped back together- turns out an entire floor was missing from the dollhouse (the 3rd floor-blue). Needless to say, this was a huge disappointment because it was the big gift. The following business day I called Melissa & Doug directly, instead of going through Overstock.com. They are promptly shipping me the missing piece. So- again, the product is fabulous and the manufacturer couldn't be better, but I have not had the best luck purchasing through Overstock.com.
First I made a mistake ordering, I ordered a wrong dollhouse and was process already, but costumer service took care of my issues right away. The dollhouse took me an hour to assemble, from start to finish. Product is great better than the plastic Barbie house, great investment for your child. I suggest when assembling: 1. Big space to work with. (Living room) 2. Take out everything from the box- lay out every pieces with the numbers on top (possibly from left to right 1 to _I forgot_) This will take about good 20 minutes. 3. Follow instructions one-by-one while looking at the final picture. This will take good 30 minutes. 4. Finally set the small furnitures. I assembled mine at night when my daughters sleeping and covered it with linen and surprised here when she woke-up the next morning. Completely worth it, it's great for her Barbie/frozen dolls.
We purchased this dollhouse last Christmas for our then 3 year old daughter. She is now 4, and still plays with it every single day! We were able to find the perfect sized dolls for it (Sparkle Girlz Cupcake dolls)- they fit 'just right' in all of the beds, chairs, couches, bathtubs, etc. Assembly was simple (although we probably should have started before midnight on Christmas Eve!), took minimal tools, and the instructions were clear and easy to follow. It sits in her bedroom on top of her Nantucket Toy Bench (also KidKraft!), and all of the dolls and furniture pieces go in the drawer right underneath. This dollhouse takes up very little space, but has room for HUGE imaginations and hours and hours of fun! Whenever we can't find our little one, we know that we can tiptoe into her room and listen in on her imaginary world while she is absorbed in imaginary play. We have not had a single issue with anything breaking and this has been played with on a daily basis by a 3/4 year old for the last 11 months. The pretty design and playful colors makes this a wonderful addition to any little girl's bedroom. Thank you for another great product!
The product is not of the highest quality but very good. It requires care when assembling. If you take your time, pre-fit parts and do the required sanding, you will wind up with a very pretty dollhouse, which was enjoyable to build. This is an excellent dollhouse for a first-time build. For the price, this is a great bargain
