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.

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.

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....!

You definitely need two people to put this together, and while the instructions look horrendous on first sight, it was relatively easy to put together with a little time and patience and providing that you looked at the pictures closely! Very helpful that the screws were each in their own numbered compartment in a tray. It took about 1 hour to put together and the end result was well worth the effort. It certainly seems robust and is a really nice big size, meaning lots of room to play and would be excellent for two to play with together. But most importantly it looks so pretty in our little girls bedroom, and she loves playing with it for hours. We already had lots of figures and some furniture from other toy sets and are happily using those in the interim as looks like we'll need to re-mortgage it to buy the accompanying furniture for each of the rooms!!!

I bought this as a Christmas present for my 5yr old daughter. Overall I am pleased with it. However, a couple of things to note.
It took me approx 2 hrs to build on my own and there was a problem with the screw-nuts as the bore size was larger than the nut itself meaning the nut would turn whilst tightening and burst through the finished surface. This was in the roof section. As a result the screw can not be fully tightened although it does hold adequately for the purpose of play.
Second thing is the same as the other reviewers and that is the inability to choose which furniture sets to buy. I chose to buy 1 and bought the other in store.
My daughter loved it and the matching furniture on Christmas day so that's the main thing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BatteriesNotIncluded Average for the money
Fairly easy to set up - took me just over an hour or so on my own with a screwdriver.
Stairs aren't fixed and the furniture is all pink.
There is no furniture for the attic (nursery) or kitchen even if you get the full set of furniture.
For the price it is a very simple dolls house, don't expect any extras.
