This review is from: Maxim Designed by You Dollhouse with Furniture (Toy)
I'm so happy that I decided to go with this dollhouse thanks to others' reviews. We wanted wooden for durability and we're just not fans of plastic anything. I wanted an appropriate size for a 3 year old that would still grow with her, but I still wanted it to look like a regular house (no mod/eco, no victorian). This is perfect and for the price is a phenomenal deal.
-It comes with so much furniture!!!! I mean there's a car and weight room, book cases, lamps and the list goes on. That is a huge plus. It also has a lot of rooms.
-It seems my daughter enjoys just putting all the furniture on one side for now. Down the road though I think it will be wonderful that it's accessible on all sides so her baby sister can play along (hopefully with no fighting!).
-It's well made (although I venture to say that Plan has a slight advantage with durability) and was easy to put together. You definitely should have a power drill.
-We purchased the Ryan's Room Family Affair IV Hispanic-American and they are a perfect fit (excellent quality as well) if you need more people.
Minor downsides so it gets 4 stars
-We had one broken piece upon arrival. We got the Plan Toys Nursery set along with it (awesome by the way) and it's packaged much better with an individual compartment for each piece to prevent anything from being crushed. These just come all thrown in a box with each individually wrapped. The piece is the picnic table for the terrace that she won't even miss anyway but just wanted to share. Everything else was just fine.
-The box doesn't have a picture of the house on the outside so there's no wow factor if you're giving it as a gift to a young child. It's just a brown box full of pieces. In hindsight we should have put it together and just let her open the furniture.
-No stairs. My daughter keeps trying to have her dolls climb the bookcases!
I will happily recommend this house!

There is no need for a drill with this kit. No holes are needed that are not pre-drilled and counter-sunk. There's a need for a power screwdriver, and electric drills can do that.

Excellent review! Thank you for that and for the pictures. I have made up my mind that this is the dollhouse for Gramma's toy closet.
