Rated 5 out of 5 by JaneC951 Excellent Value - Good Sturdy House
This took me 2 hours to put up on my own (a second pair of hands might have been useful at times). The instructions looked daunting but were ok once you got into it - they're just a series of small pictures. It's solid, well built and looks great!
One review on here said the front didn't shut properly. I had the same problem originally, the door would shut but pop back out of the catch, but on closer inspection I'd put the hinges on that door the wrong way round (can be difficult to tell from the little pictures). I suspect the earlier reviewer may have done the same because once I'd put them on properly the door shuts perfectly.
Overall, a very good purchase and well worth the money.

Purchased this lovely dolls house in store for my Nieces Christmas present, but after reading many reviews here reporting building issues I decided to try building it mid-November, in case we experienced any issues....oh and did we have issues…
1st attempt - roof screw points were drilled in completely wrong place therefore had to return in store for replacement.
2nd attempt - the screw points on the house side were not in line with the back, hence screw punctured the laminate and did not secure....returned in store
3rd attempt, with a lot of adjustments we finally have a complete dolls house which unquestionably is gorgeous!
However, my recommendation is I would certainly not leave the build to Christmas morning, to avoid upset for child and adults alike....!

I was surprised that it was very easy to build due to some previous reviews. A handy tip is to not to tighten all the bolts/screws until it is fully assembled and be careful not to over-tighten (it's easier to tighten up something that is loose rather than have to repair it once it is broken).
I got a bargain in the sale and marked the value as excellent but not so sure about the full price. There are two sets of furniture/dolls to go with this house that are bought seperately and they compliment it well.
Both granddaughters love it (and the accessories) and should enjoy it for a long time but it is too soon to comment on reliability, although it feels sturdy enough.

Astonishing value and quality - it is flat-packed of course, and takes some making up, but with the help of some glue, it is solid and has great play value for a young lady. I bought it for a 4 year old, and I would say it is suitable to buy for up to 8 - older might want more sophisticated. I was going to make one from scratch - absolutely no point as it would cost me as much, if not more. A great buy - as was the furniture that can be bought alongside - not worth making it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by NatNatNoodle Extemly angry and dissapointed!!!
I bought this a few weeks ago for my 5 yr old daughters Christmas present.
Im sitting here now, on Christmas eve...angry at the outcome of putting the house together.
Im capable of building flat packs and similar items and also following instructions properly. Thats not the problem here.
Myself and My Wife started putting it together no problems...and getting about half way through, we came across misaligned holes and a screw/bolt that stuck ( the bolt thread was dodgy ) It was a little problematic, but we sorted it out and just assumed it was a one off.
The next 2 screw bolts were the same. To cut a long story short, two of the screws got jammed on a dodgy thread...and Im unable to tighten or loosen 2 of them. Trying to unscrew the bolts have churned up the wood of the surrounding areas...and basically made a total mess of the house.
I cant even take it apart to return to the store for a refund/replacement...so it will be going back half made so they can see the issues Ive had with it. It does look like a decent house, but has been let down by misaligned holes and really poor quality screws/bolts etc
Normally I wouldn't be too angry, but my daughter will now be without one of her main presents tomorrow on Christmas day, and typically, a lot of her other presents were furniture and items for the house.
Not happy at all.
