I bought these for use with the Ryan's Room Home Again doll house. They are perfectly sized for our doll house. The adults are roughly 4.5"; the kids are roughly 4". We've only had them for a couple of days; but so far, the girl doll has successfully ridden the rocking horse in the Ryan's Room Children's Bedroom; and the adults have all had a seat on the potty in Ryan's Room Bubbles Bathroom. The parents fit (laying down) on the bed in Ryan's Room Master Bedroom. No problems with these dolls in terms of sizing with Ryan's Room. My only complaints are the clothing leaves something to be desired and the grandfather's hair is scary (I'm planning to give him a trim); but there doesn't seem to be anything too much better on the market. I think for the price on Amazon, this set is the best value.

My three year old son and 18 month old daughter love these dolls. My son pretends that each of these dolls is an actual person that he knows. They are great for individual play. The only complaint I have is that he has trouble getting them to stand up on their own.

These were a 4th birthday gift for my daughter and she adores them. She can get them to stand up and sit down easily. Having so many characters helps her come up with great little stories for them to act out. We're very pleased!

I will say first that the quality of these is great - on par with Melissa and Doug's toys in general. My daughter, however, hates these, and has never played with them. Surprising, I know, but here's the I think/she thinks perspective:

I love the fact that they are wooden; she could care less. I love the adorable painted faces; their simplicity doesn't appeal to her at all. Their hair and clothing is dated: whose grandparents look and dress like this nowadays? Circa "Little House on the Prairie," which I found charming and she finds "creepy." Finally, their legs and arms look like cotton cording, with what must be a wire inside to make them bend. When you hold them in your hands, they feel...strange. Unappealing in this aspect, which even I agree with in hindsight.

Given all of the above, the issue of size is irrelevant to us, but as other reviewers have correctly noted: the size of these is not to scale with the typical 1:12 dollhouse, nor even to scale in the Melissa and Doug's own Princess castle (which we erroneously bought these to accompany).

All in all, far and away not the most appealing doll house dolls one could buy one's child. Neither visually or tactilely. Or at least, not to the eyes of my particular daughter: as she says to me, "Mommy, these are not my personal preference." lol

I purchased this little wooden family to go along with the Melissa and Doug Deluxe Wooden Furnished Dollhouse. These are well constructed bendable wooden figures and they are ADORABLE! I am a huge fan of Melissa and Doug products. It is so nice to have an affordable alternative to myriad of cheap plastic toys made with lead and PVCs! My 4 year old daughter plays with these dolls daily, sometimes for hours at a time. Fantastic product!!

I got very frustrated that nobody at Melissa&Doug or Amazon seems to want to mention how big these dolls are! So:

The 'adult' dolls are about 4.75" tall
The 'kid' dolls are about 3.5" tall

There are wooden and blocky, and the arms and legs are made of cotton cord-covered wire which poses nicely.

They stand up on their own, a real plus!

My only complaint is the lack of ethnic variation - all these dolls are white. It would be nice to offer a blended family or the option to buy the dolls 'a la carte' to help them resemble your own unique family.

I don't see anything wrong with the quality of the toy. However, my 7 year old daughter was not able to use them with her new doll house. They are too big to fit in most of the furniture that was purchased for the house. They are quite big and clunky. She wasn't very impressed with the faces...we weren't sure right away which was the day...his hair is a bit long, but she's older than many doll house owners so this may not bother a younger child. We had to go buy another set of doll house people that actually work with the doll house furniture.

My daughter received the Melissa & Doug Wooden Doll House Last Christmas. We thought that it would be nice to get more dolls for the house and purchased the wooden Family Doll Set. Didn't even cross my mind that the Melissa & Doug company wouldn't design their wooden doll sets to go with their wooden doll houses and furniture. Big disappointment. On our part we should have checked size but shouldn't these products go together? Not sure I'd recommend the doll houses & doll sets to anyone or purchase any more of their products.
