(Disclosure – we were sent this product to review but all opinions are our own. This post also contains affiliate links.)
Back in February when we went to Toy Fair, I got a chance to check out the new My Girl’s Dollhouse kit up close and personal. All I can say is WOW!! It was huge and I could not believe how great everything fit in it.
Earlier this summer, My Girl’s Dollhouse sent me one of them to review and to use in our photos. Natalie and I were so excited!! We pulled everything out of my office and did a good clear out, too. Then we set about putting it together.
The dollhouse arrived and let me just say it is HEAVY! It will take at least two people to move the box and put it together. Also, be sure to have a large space open for set up and block off a few hours, too.
The instructions to put the dollhouse together are very clear and easy to follow. Just be sure to follow it CLOSELY. If you don’t you will get frustrated and may have to take it apart and put it back together a few times (yes, we know this from experience!).
Natalie and I built the dollhouse in my office. The only tricky part was making sure that the grooves in the support beams were pointing the correct direction.
The only tool you need to assemble the dollhouse is a screwdriver and the allen wrench that came in the kit. Once you get going, you really can put it together in a few hours and the kids can help put it together. The frame is 100% pine wood and the panels are pressed board covered with printed “wallpaper.”
The dollhouse is taking shape. It is a combination of panels and wooden frame pieces and the more you put it together, the more solid it becomes.
A few hours later we have our finished product! What I forgot to do is take a photo of the front of the house before we put it into place and once it was there, I was not about to move it! You can also add the hanging rod to the attic if you’d like. I wanted to have more space for doll furniture so we did not install it.
Time to move everyone in! The top floor was claimed by the historical girls – Nellie and Molly furnished their “room” with the Victorian Trundle and Dresser from The Queen’s Treasures.
Meanwhile Kit and Ruthie are enjoying a snack and doing some laundry.
On the second floor, Isabelle “claimed” the ballet themed room. She added the My Doll’s Life daybed and rolling clothes rack.
The purple room has the bunk bed from My Doll’s Life. Kenzie and Gwen just love their new space. They are still trying to agree on what type of window covering they should add to the room.
On the first floor Callie has her laptop set up on The Queen’s Treasures kitchen table and the kitchen set is from Our Generation.
Also on the first floor the girls set up the spa with the AG spa chair and The Queen’s Treasures shoppes for all the salon goodies.
And the final set up! We have had a great time decorating the doll space and it looks so much better in my office, too!!
So, I know you want the details! The cost is $299 plus shipping. Honestly, if you were to go out and buy the wood and the hardware, then figure out a design, the $299 is actually a pretty good value. The dollhouse is BIG – like over 6 feet tall and 5 feet wide – so you need to have plenty of wall space. There are also two different styles to choose from – ours is the Country French house.
We love the dollhouse and plan to use it for lots of doll photos and scene set-ups going forward!!
