What It Is
The Chalet Dollhouse with Furniture is a large dollhouse with two separate structural components that can be rearranged to create your own unique dollhouse. The dollhouse has two skylights in the roof and two moveable staircases. It comes with five sets of furniture for each room of the house: living room, bathroom, kitchen, children's bedroom, and master bedroom. Each piece of furniture has lots of great details. For example, the three beds have padding, the toilet lid opens and closes, and the fridge opens and closes. The many open walls of each structure provide easy access to the dollhouse interior from every side. One of the features that sets this dollhouse apart from others is that it is formaldehyde-free and uses organic color. Dolls are not included, but Plan Toys does make dolls for this dollhouse, which are sold separately.
Why It’s Fun
This dollhouse encourages hands-on imaginative play and really engages kids in creative storytelling as they come up with all kinds of adventures in the dollhouse. Overall, the Chalet Dollhouse is very sturdy and large with just the right amount of accessories.
Who It’s For
The Chalet Dollhouse with Furniture is for ages 3 and up.
It's a good choice for a classic dollhouse not tied to any specific brand or line of dolls, and it's sturdy enough for co-play, and probably to be handed down as kids grow out of dollhouse play.
What To Be Aware Of
The instructions for putting together this dollhouse were easy to follow, however, some of the labeled parts are hard to distinguish, so that slowed us down a bit.
