After researching many dollhouses in the internet, I decided on purchasing this one as my daughter's first dollhouse. Although I really liked some other houses that were made of wood, they were too expensive. I thought this was a better buy to see if she would get into playing with dollhouses seriously.

Keep in mind that there is a bit of assembly when you receive the box - The house is together, but you have to put all of the exterior trim on and the staircase.

My main disappointment with the house is that I thought it should have come with more furniture to start. It only came with the basic family (mom, dad & twin babies), a kitchen table set with 2 chairs & 2 booster seats. Thank goodness I wound up buying the extra furniture sets (bathroom, parents' bedroom, nursery & mini van). For the price, i think they should have at least included the kitchen appliances.

Also, I found that one of the folding doors in the back does not readily latch and keeps popping open when transporting the house. And the staircase gets in the way - it blocks 1/2 of the first floor! (I just leave this loose so it can be taken out easily)

Finally, why didn't Fisher-Price put in a doorbell that makes sound?! That is one of the most requested items on the house from my daughter. She would love to have a doorbell!

Oervall, this is a very durable, quality product from Fisher-Price and I think it is an excellent 1st doll house for this price range.

My parents bought this for our daughter (who will be 3 in February) for Christmas. It was love at first sight! All the room sets, which are purchased separately, have A LOT of realistic detail to keep my daughter playing independently for long periods of time. Although the house is big, it folds up neatly and even stores some pieces inside.

Depending on where you purchase the house, you get different bonus furniture (we got BBQ, picnic table, swingset, slide, casual dining table set). However, all houses come with mom & dad and, most importantly, twin boy & girl.

After seeing the prices of the room sets, I suggest you shop at Wlmrt to get a much better deal. The room sets my daughter likes most are:
- living room (has "working" TV...batteries included)
- bathroom
- nursery (changing table plays music, includesdouble cribs, etc. for twins)
- home office

I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS HOUSE!

My 2 year-old daughter has recently started showing interest in dollhouses, so for me it was an obvious choice for her birthday. I have looked at a few products on this site and some of the other toy sites, but this dollhouse really grabbed my attention (I think it is the little girl inside me that really loved it), so I ordered it. Now that it has been about a week in our house, I am sure that it was the right choice. Every morning and after every nap my daughter runs to the doll house and start playing with all the little things that it came with (her favorite are the flowers in the flower pots, that come out easily). She loves the little babies in the high chairs, as well as their parents.
I have to admit, that the quality of the product went above my expectations. How much craftsmanship can you really expect from a plastic toy? I know, I didn't... It was a pleasant surprise to find all of the parts in the box, carefully folded, wrapped and taped, undamaged. All pieces are made of high-quality heavy-weight plastic (from what my experience has been with most of the plastic toys), the details of the house as well as household items are carefully painted and look like miniature replicas of the real world things. My greatest pleasant surprise was at the quality of the dolls that came with the house. I expected a few solid plastic figures that are poorly decorated, but serve the purpose of the occupants of the house. What I didn't expect were quite adorable dolls with bendable arms and legs, heads made of soft rubbery material (that makes it look like skin), and the mother of the house even has pretty flowy synthetic hair. Very cute!
Overall, I am very happy with the purchase - it is reasonably priced, and unlike some of the other first dollhouses, I expect this one to grow with my daughter and I hope she will make good use of it for years to come. It seems to be pretty sturdy to survive the preschool/kindergarten years :-)

I love this product! It can be used for hours of fun. I DO wish it came with more furniture.
I just wanted to let parents know to watch the price. I found this same doll house at WalMart for almost half the price as listed on Amazon. It pays to shop around! And WalMart offers free site-to-store shipping!!!!

here is too high. I just got this for my daughter for Christmas at Toys R Us for $149.99. Included all the furniture and family with that price. Without it was $69 on Amazon a few weeks ago. Great toy, but not a great price listed here.

My three year old granddaughter LOVED her birthday present!!! This doll house is ideal for any little girl from age three and up. Her 7 year old sister loves it too. It was simple to assemble, beautiful and has wonderful people and furniture etc. I highly recommend it. Fisher-Price Loving Family Grand Dollhouse

I would like to Thank Fisher Price for making this house so easy to open and put together. I purchased this for Christmas for my little girl and I anticipated the wires, rubber bands and tape that consume most toy packaging. I was giving myself extra time on Christmas Eve to put this together....and I had it together in about 10 mins. I must say I was thrilled that there were no rubber bands, tape or wires holding the stuff in the box. All the pieces actually fit together perfectly and I never come across that anymore with plastic toys. It is very well made and all the pieces fit with the dolls. They can sit in the chairs...lay in the beds and even drive in the car. I was very happy this toy was so well made. It is also really pretty and cute. I don't mind having it out in the room as it is nice to look at. My daughter of course loved it! but I think I was more happy then her that this toy was not a nightmare to put together. The only down fall is having to buy all the stuff separately. On Amazon the room sets were really expensive but I was able to find them all at the store for a reasonable price.

I want to love this dollhouse, and my daughter does. Unfortunately, the white pillars are cheaply made. One of ours broke, and Fisher Price does not offer a replacement part. They didn't do anything, so I now have a $70 broken dollhouse and a devestated little girl. I'd look for a sturdier one now, as those are just plastic and snap easily.

We got this dollhouse for my three year old son because he loves to play with the one at his preschool. This toy has been a godsend because of it's interactive qualities. My son suffers from speech delay and social anxiety, but during his play with this toy he has all of the dolls interact with each other while modeling nice social behavior. He gets so excited when I play with him and I can hear his speech improving each time.

The house itself is really cute with plenty of room to fill with accessories. It folds up nicely with room to store everything, and is really easy to put together when you first get it. The accessories are a little hard to find, but Walmart has been selling them in their stores for normal price (which is much cheaper than the accessories sold here).

I have a two year old daughter who likes to play with the dollhouse, but she is a little young and mostly jumbles all the pieces together. She also likes to hide the pieces around our house. This toy is definitely for a three year old or above. But, a good thing about this dollhouse and it's accessories is that the really small parts are attached by a string to the piece of furniture so they can't be easily lost. Very helpful! Another thing I love is that the doll's knees bend allowing the dolls to sit nicely in the chairs, etc. unlike most barbie dolls.

This is a great buy for the preschool age with durable pieces and super cute fun! I definitely recommend it!
