Product Description

Product Description

Mrs. Goodbee's house is a special place where preschool-age girls can let their imaginations run wild, all the while learning some valuable lessons about caring, sharing and preparing. It's learning while you play. The interactive dollhouse virtually comes alive to talk, sing and play with girls -- and features over 400 activities, songs and sounds. When you ring the doorbell, Mrs. Goodbee's eye pop open, her lips light up, and she transforms into a friendly charcter that guides girls through acts of caring, sharing and preparing for life-long responsibilites. As they play, she activates eight different "hot spots" throughout the house, such as the doorbell, the nursery cradle, the refrigerator, the boombox on the rooptop playgrund, the toilet and bathroom sink, the pet bed, and a special "Day and Night Window."In addition, Mrs. Goodbee offers tons of play space with its unique, tri-fold design. It features 12 spacious rooms so two children can easily play together at the same time. Plus, there are special passageways in the mid-section that allow girls to share dolls and accessories with each other.

Another special feature is the Good Deeds Garden. Every time a child does a real-world good deed, she can take a sticker (included in the Parent Guide) and decorate the back of the Mrs. Goodbee dollhouse. Requires 3 "AA" batteries, included. Measures 24"L x 9"W x 16"H.

At a Glance

Ages: 3 to 6 years
Requires: 3 AA batteries (included)
Meet Mrs. Goodbee
With only a few plastic parts to snap in place, and with the three AA batteries already installed, the Mrs. Goodbee Talking Dollhouse is ready to go moments after it comes out of the box. Depending on how old your child is, you may need to apply the decorative decals yourself. There's 66 of them, including family photos for the walls, a shopping list to hang on the fridge, and dishes for inside the dishwasher.

When your little girl is ready to play, she simply turns the unit on and rings the doorbell, which will cause the dollhouse to come to life. Mrs. Goodbee's eyes snap open, her lips light up, and she sings a welcoming song. As your child plays, eight audio activation points throughout the house keep the experience interactive. In the bathroom, Mrs. Goodbee offers comments like, "Flush, wash, wonderful! Good job." When the fridge is opened, she may say "Brrrrrrrr" in response to the rush of cold air.

Explore the Good Deeds Garden Online
There's another whole world waiting online at www.caringcorners.com, where little girls can use the secret code that comes with their dollhouse to unlock the good deeds garden. The dollhouse offers children several games and tasks to choose from. Children can try their hand at feeding hungry fish or picking out the differences between two similar pictures.

This feature is not simply designed with fun in mind; it's also designed to promote responsibility. Every time a child does a real-world good deed, she can take a sticker from the Parent Guide and use it to decorate the back of the dollhouse. Secret codes that unlock additional games are hidden under the stickers, making this a fun and engaging process, and one that encourages positive social behaviors.

Fun Details and Additional Friends
Even beyond the great sound effects, the Mrs. Goodbee house is full of thoughtful details that keep playtime interesting. Windows in the bedroom move up and down to reveal different scenes for daytime and nighttime. A lever by the oven reveals muffins, a pie, or a turkey cooking. With its unique fold-out design and six rooms on each side, there's plenty of room for multiple children to play at the same time. And when it's time to clean up, simply fold the house up with your child's dolls inside to save space.

With all the use this dollhouse is sure to get, we are concerned that its construction may not hold up over time. The hinges and platforms seem sturdy, but they are made out of fairly thin plastic. Additionally, there aren't a lot of accessories that come with the dollhouse. This may not be an issue if your child already has dolls that will fit in this dollhouse, or if you invest in one or more of the fun accessory packs, such as Table Manners, A Book at Bedtime, or the Pet Playground.

What's in the Box
Interactive dollhouse, chimney, window, steps, swing, chair, dog, baby, girl, card key, three AA batteries, and three sheets of label stickers.

Customer Reviews

Very durable toy.
Dave Mills
It packs up tight to only occupy a small space in her room full of toys and she can easily take it with her to play elsewhere.

If you want a great educational toy that your child can learn and use there imagination for play this is a good one.

I had high expectations for this dollhouse based on the commercials. Unfortunately, it did not live up to my expectations. The pros - the face on the house is really cute. It blinks, its eyes move and the phrases are sweet. Also, it is double sided which has been helpful to encourage my girls' sharing. The cons - inadequate design. Don't get me wrong, it's not horrible, I just think there are better designs out there. Some of the floors are very narrow making play difficult. The others flip out to be wider, but if two floors on top of each other are flipped down, you can't reach the bottom one very well. The advertising is misleading. I couldn't find anywhere near 400 activities and I don't really see the educational value. There are probably 8 (maybe 9) sound buttons. If I had a do-over I would have spent my money on a Fisher Price dollhouse like Loving Family.

My daughter recently had a play date with three other toddlers and the Mrs.Goodbee doll house was a hit! All 4 girls played for 2 hours sharing and interacting with the doll house. My daughter hardly ever plays with any toy for more than 15 minutes but the interactive features on the house kept her engaged. I love that she is learning about table manors, washing her hands after the potty and helping mom do chores.
A brilliant innovative product.

This house has an adorable concept. The sayings and all are very cute and the color scheme as well. Here are my issues:
1. The beautiful set of stairs leading up to the front door, which has a doorbell...but the door does not open. You have to walk around the house. This is senseless to me.
2. Almost none of the furniture fits into the house! You have to place it all on the floor outside of the house. As for the few pieces that do fit into the house, the floor is so flimsy that it is constantly snapping off at the hinge on the lower floors.
3. The sets that you buy for the house are very repetitive and you end up with multiples of each doll. This is only if you can find the sets of course because that is a mission all its own. The birthday table/ pizza party set has no chairs, but does have another little girl I don't need.
4. The stickers, O my, what a tedious job! God forbid you put one on the wrong side of the house or a little crooked, because you are not getting another shot at it!!!
5. The house that we purchased was not even painted as advertised ( the back wall of the house and all the flowers on it were just cream colored, not the pretty colors shown in pictures.
As for my next issue, This could be a pro and a con.
6. The 2 separate sides of the house... If you have 2 or more children that don't like to play to closely together this could be great for you. How ever, if you would like to play with your child...I found it extremely annoying to have to walk back and forth from one side of the house to the other in order to play in the different rooms. Perhaps if they had put all the bedrooms on one side and all the functional/living rooms on the other side it would not have been as bad.

This is a wonderful dollhouse and is great for two or more children to play together at the same time without crowding each other too much. I want to let any parents purchasing this item in on something though. You can by the doll packs for a fraction of the price on the Learning Curve website. The packs go from [...] for the smaller packs to [...] for the more extensive packs. Shipping is reasonable and you will save loads over other websites for these toys. Good luck!!

I bought this dollhouse for my daughter for Christmas. She seems to realy enjoy the house but she gets frustrated. The Caring Corner furnature sets are not very sturdy and they don't stay on the floors very well. The TV and Chair constantly fall over. The bed slides around and falls off and the vanity is impossible to make stand up for any length of time. You should forget ever sitting the momma doll on the tiny stool in front of it. The front steps constantly pop off and so does the chimney. When you have it all set up straight its very flimsy and will fall over easily with a push.
In my opinion the dollhouse is not worth the high price and then when you buy the furnature that goes with it you have easily dropped over a hundred dollars into it. You can buy better made dollhouses for that amount of money.
The educational value is extremely limited too. I just don't feel my daughter gets much out of it. Yes, she does have fun with it but she will become easily frustrated with the furnature and the fact it tips easily.

Santa brought this for my 3 year old daughter for Christmas. I was fun for all of 5 min. the stickers fall off, the chimney, front stairs and top swing fall off constantly. for the price of the doll house and the furniture I could have bought a tall wooden doll house and at least if she lost interest I could have used it for a book shelf.( there isn't even enough room to put the furniture in the house )

My daughter recieved this dollhouse for Christmas and we were pretty excited to begin playing with it. The first thing I noticed when we started unpacking it was the poor construction and lack of color (unless you consider the add-on stickers, which I don't). The rooms are not large enough for the furniture that you purchase seperatly, unless your child does not want to actually play in the room but rather just have it set up for show. The "floors" flip down for storage, which makes the lower rooms practically unaccessible unless in their upright position (which would be folded up for storage). And when it is finally time to flod it up to store, where should you put all the furniture? You cannot leave it in the house bc of the flip-down floors. We had to undo all of the rooms and stash the pieces in nooks around the dollhouse. I know it is praised for its educational features but if your child has manners than the job is done. No dollhouse needed. Overall, we are very disappointed with Mrs. Goodbee and wish that we had spent out $150 (house + 3 playsets) on perhaps a Fisher-Price.
