This evening Megan and I built a dollhouse. Yes, this dollhouse was so easy to build that Megan and I did it together. Okay, I did most of the work and she helped along the way…But it really was a very easy construction process. The dollhouse in question is My Delightful Dollhouse made by Kidcraft.
I am really impressed with this dollhouse so far. It is very well made and they even went so far as to color-coordinate the screw heads with the wall panel colors.It stands about 4 feet tall (or 7 and half of Megan’s feet she says LOL) and about 2 and half feet wide. Included in the box were 9 pieces of furniture, a canopy bed, grandfather clock, couch, bathtub, coffee table, porch chair, table and 2 stools. Just enough to get her dolls all set up in their first home.
The only problem I had with construction, which wasn’t a true “problem” per se, was with the stairs. The screws were a little difficult to get started by myself because of the way it fits into the house. Not difficult enough to be overly frustrating, just took a few seconds longer to do this step.
This company is go great that they even included a kit to secure it to the wall. It is a heavily constructed toy, so securing it to the wall is important if you have smaller children. Since both of my girls are older, I am not overly worried about them pulling it on top of themselves. But do not take any chances with younger kids. It is always better to be safe.
