This doll house KIT is a true test of your patience and skill. I would not recommend this kit for a pure novice builder. I built the 6 room furniture kit first then started on the doll house. Make sure you read through the entire instructions first before doing anything. Then make a plan that details what each room will be. Decide what you are going to do with the floors...wood finish, carpet etc. Decide on the paint or wall paper for each room. I highly recommend that you build AND finish the sub-assemblies first (stairway, 1st floor fireplace wall, etc. Next layout your lines on the outside walls for the clapboards and the roof panels for shingles. Next finish the floors and the interior walls and ceilings. Once interior finishing is complete go back to the first instruction and start the assembly of the house. Outside finishing is last and takes some time and a lot of hot glue. If you have questions call the toll free help number in the plans. They will be a big help. It's a great product when completed.

My husband and I bought each of our daughters one of these dollhouses for their birthday. They love the houses and they have become a family project to build. They come with all of the wood pieces including the trim, however they do not come primed or painted, we liked that because then we could personalize each house according to our daughter's tastes in color and furniture. This is a large dollhouse, it's bigger than I expected. We have a three year old and a 7 year old and these houses will be played with for a long time, I think my daughters will be able to "pass" them down to their own daughters one day.

Purchased two for my girls for christmas and the pieces break when you pop them out the cuts are not even. When one failed I tried to ship back the one that was in the box and I couldn't get their shipping label to open up (faulty detachments too) then by the time there rep got back to me they said it was over 30 days since I purchased it and I could no longer return it. Save your Money This Is JUNK!!!

Cheap 'fiber' board splinters when pieces are punched out and impossible to sand smooth. Shingles and siding are thinner than card stock. Structure is sturdy enough when assembled but it is way too deep for a child to play with. I would not advise purchasing this item.

Very cute design, good instructions. I found it best to set up the house structure unglued, then take apart and decorate before assembly as long as you allow for the joins and are precise. I prefer wood glue (eg Elmers) to a glue gun, gives you more time and is not heat and moisture sensitive like gun glue, though you may need to use tape (masking or similar light tack tape) to hold some joins while they set. Wood could be thicker and needs some filling in places for the best finish. Glue the roof shingles to brown paper first and then glue paper to roof and trim- a lot easier! Not a quick project and does need care and patience but very rewarding. Allow for the addictive nature of miniaturisation and the fact that you'll probably end up spending three times what the kit cost. Find a good specialist store (I found Ms Peggie's Place in San Diego CA, she's great) and get their advice on anything/everything!

If 0 stars was an option that is what I would give. Maybe I just got a bad one. That happens. The plywood layers came apart on many of the pieces, the directions were difficult to understand, the siding buckled after I painted it. I spent lots of hours trying to make this for my granddaughter and finally put it (almost completed) on the curb for the trash man. Go to Real Good Toys, pay a little more and get yourself a great dollhouse kit that you will really enjoy. (I got mine through Amazon)

This house is adorable, but has been a nightmare to put together. The directions are not helpful as none of the parts are labeled. And we have had to sand all of the pieces because they are too rough as is. We have our retired general contractor grandpa working on it he is challenged on this TINY house project more than a big house--he says! Ha! It's not together quite yet, so I'll have to update this on how the finished product looks.

I bought this dollhouse for a trade show display of some house paints. It took me 45 hours to paint the exterior parts and build the dollhouse. The panels with the various parts were marked appropriately. The instructions were somewhat clear, but it did take a few times reading over certain sections to understand them. When I finished the dollhouse, it looked very nice.
