The third-floor entertainment room can be removed as a take-along mini-playhouse. Girls will spend hours and hours playing with this giant (44.5"H x 43"W x 14.5"D) playset, finding ever new ways with the more than 70 play pieces to arrange Barbie, her pals, and her furniture (dolls not included). The entire playhouse can close up when not in use. Who says dreams cant come true? Not Barbie, thats for sure! Adult assembly required. Requires three "AA" batteries and two "AAA" batteries (not included). --Emilie Coulter

I found the price to be very reasonable and was pleased with the quality for the price. It took a little bit of time to assemble, and carrying it up from the basement on Christmas Eve was trucky to do alone, but the dollhouse folds up for transport. The top floor "media room" detaches, but not as easily as I'd like. Some of the exterior pieces fall off occasionally, but my kids can pop the balcony railing or the flowers in the window box back on by themselves. I have fun playing with the Dreamhouse, too! It's exactly what I would've wanted as a girl.
the intercom is very loud (with no volume control)
the top level does not lock into place (therefore my 3 yr old could pull this down very easily)
and there is nowhere to store the furniture when you close the house up.
Make sure you allow at least an hour for assembly and decorating. Also, I opened this item after 30 days and realized that the taps had broken off the bathtub and I can't return it. Other than that, this house is adorable and has tons of extra pieces. I know my daughter is going to love receiving this for Christmas.
All in all, definitely worth the money. No complaints here.
Setting it up was not at all difficult, but took maybe around an hour. It was not a chore though-- it was actually kind of fun.
There are sooo many great fun features to this house: the entertainment center folds down into a murphy bed, the doorbell rings, there's a stereo that plays music, the fridge opens, the toilet flushes, the dryer spins, and there are a zillion little fun accessories-- too name just a few of the great features. It's also much bigger than it seems from looking at the picture but because of the pale pink color, it's not an eyesore at all.
Yes, the windows do pop out sometimes but it's really not that big of a nuisance (and I suppose, as some reviewers have suggested, you could easily krazy glue them shut). But as for the overall quality, I was pretty impressed. It's much more sturdy than the particle board houses-- and far prettier. Plus, instead of having appliances and furniture painted on the back walls(like many of the other houses), the Dreamhouse has actual appliances and furniture. So much more fun for a child to play with!
My daughter has already spent endless hours playing with this toy. She always had a ton of Barbie dolls but she never played with them as consistently as she has until getting the Dreamhouse. She tells me all the time how much she loves it. It really is a terrific toy. And the Amazon price is amazing-- at Toys R Us they are selling it for $129.99! Plus Amazon offers free shipping!
You can't go wrong with this house. I am so beyond thrilled that I got it for my daughter!!
I'd definitely buy it again but I think Mattel needs to work on the "fit" part of the design. I'd also recommend some super glue.

Over all this was a nice doll house, but we had trouble with the windows popping off. Our daughter enjoyed it regardless and played with it for quite some time.Published 19 months ago by Brandon VanWinkle
The quality is very poor. Panels easily fall off and the elevator sticks between the second and third floor. Barbie is too tall for the elevator. Read morePublished 20 months ago by Steve Nelson
