Pros: Durable, has the extra "panache" for an affordable dollhouse, some realistic items included
Cons: No boys themed rooms, hard to find.
The Fisher Price Loving Family Dollhouse Furniture Kits are adorable! Made of durable plastic, and affordable, they include special touches that make all the difference. The folks at FP have tried and succeeded in adding luxurious touches to an affordable, kid friendly dollhouse.
The kids bedroom comes with a canopy style bed ( more like a daybed if you will ) a nightstand, a TV tray with food, a white bed pillow ( a standard pillow with a ruffled edge ) and a comfy chair. The chair is a plush fabirc, done in pink and purple tones. The bedspread and canopy are also fabric, as is the pillow. The colors are all ideal for a little girl.
The furniture is sturdy, good size for little hands ( I'd suggest a 4-6 year old range ), and I love the fact that there is real fabric involved. We have had dollhouses with plastic pillows or worse, pillows made as a part of the plastic bed. These are realistic and stylish!!
I do wonder, however....if there is a boy child, where is he sleeping? There is not a boy-themed bedroom set. Chances are good that more girls than boys are playing with the dollhouse...however....I'd imagine that (a) there are some boys who would like "their own" room or (b) for girls with brothers, they would like to show a room for them as well.
Another strange bit - each parent is sold separatly with one child - however, there is a set of mom/dad/two babies. I wanted my 4 year old to have a little girl for her dollhouse - so I now have two moms, one dad, two babies, and a little girl. Not sure what to do with the extra mom.....!!!!
Thes rooms of furniture can be hard to find ( maybe it is just the time of year ) - seem to be out of stock in a lot of rooms everywhere I look. I bought this one at Walmart for $10.00.
