Rated 4 out of 5Â by m1sd Great little dollhouse
This is a great little starter dollhouse. I bought it for my two year old for Christmas. I think it is great for little ones around this age. Many of the other sets have smaller pieces that may be dangerous. The quality is great. The house is a little on the small side, but we wanted to start her with a little set at this point. I would have liked the house to be just a bit bigger (reason for the 4 stars). All the little furniture and dolls easily fold up and the dollhouse is a good size to be portable. When she gets a little older I want to get her a bigger set with more rooms and furniture, but this is great for her age! It includes a good a mount of furnitures and two dolls. I would have liked for a baby doll too.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by MartyKzoo Toy encourages family-building, creative play.
The Melissa and Doug "Fold and Go Mini Dollhouse" has 4 excellent features.
It 1) has provided hours of creative play for our grandson;
2) was affordable;
3) has a very practical design which allows children to learn the value of putting all parts away when finished playing with the toy.
4) Can be used atop a table to encourage participation of elderly family members who are unable to get down on the floor
The little people are colorful and it's an advantage that characters of various ages and races are available to match the set, representing our extended family and friends. It's too bad it is available only in pink. A neutral color would be more realistic and could allow kids to choose their favorite colors for accessories. The toy encourages family-building, creative play (which is not gender specific as suggested by the pink paint job).
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Disappointed mom of two boys Dollhouse for boys?
My niece has this doll house and my 2 year old son loves playing with it. When I got on the website to find a unisex version, I was very disappointed. Only having a pink doll house with purple furniture seems unfair for boys. Role play is very important for children, so it is surprising that Melissa and Doug wouldn't make a unisex doll house. We own many Melissa and Doug toys and have never been disappointed before, but I think this is an important issue for them to consider.
