Asda do a lovely dolls house, i bought it for DD when she was 4. Her and AS both play with it together, and it was cheap enough. They do an offer online where you can get the house and the furniture set for cheaper than buying them separately x

I'm okay putting more money in to something I know my daughter loves and will use. So, if my little one loved doll houses and I knew she'd use it for a few years, then I'd be okay spending more money on one.

My dd isn't in to dolls or doll houses, but loves the little furniture and likes to arrange it, so I built her a simple, undecorated house to give her this Christmas. (fortunately, a friend has gifted me a ton of little doll house furniture pieces and bits) In my situation, I would not spend the money on a nice, fancy dollhouse, but if my dd loved them and would play with them, they I'd buy her a nice one.

Both DD1 and DD2 are totally in a doll house phase. They build houses with the duplo and make beds out of playdoh for their dolls and play mommy and daddy with them.

My dad built my sister and I doll houses when we were very small and we loved them but they didn't survive our childhood. When my niece was about 5 he made one for her as well as a free standing cooker, he died not long after wards but the house and cooker are still played with often (18 years later) by my 7 year old son - it's lovely to have something that he can enjoy which his granda made.

Finally we decided to buy DD1 something else...a scooter and an articulated barbie who looks a bit like her if she was 5ft9 and a frozen eau de toilette.

OH and I felt that a doll house for just her was too much so we are buying it for xmas as a joint present for her and DD2. We are also decided to get the big kidkraft one that was open on both sides so that three kids can play at the same time.

This sounds like a great idea, it's lovely at Christmas for there to be a shared gift, you'll all be sitting around it having fun.

I've never seen the ones that are open on both sides. I got my kids a dolls house last year (they were 4 year old girl and 6 year old boy) and they LOVE it, though I can't imagine them playing on different sides as they always play side by side, holding the wee dolls next to each other if you know what I mean.

I like the second one you posted.
