    thank you, I keep umming and ahhring as not sure how long she would get use out of smaller ones. Someone who has one might be able to answer that. She likes her big dolls as well (she has Rapunzel and Flynn Disney dolls, my friend got her a Cinderella matel one and she has lottie doll) so not sure whether to go for bigger one which lasts longer. The asda one does look nice. I am so awful at making mind up

    just checked last years thread on HUKD and it was reduced 11 months ago, so my guess is soon. I'm sure it will be posted on here when it's reduced as there seems to be a few people after dolls houses this year. x

    The 20% toy event is on at ELC & mothercare today. ELC have put the price of the manor house back up to £130 but mothercare have it for £100, with the 20% day makes it £80 then if you try & add your 20% you mentioned it may even take it down again to £64.

    No - thats the shopping centre next to it, dolls can't just sit around the house all day you know - they have to go to the salon, grab some pizza before stopping at the barbie boutique to get a new outfit for their christmas party.
    I got it two years ago from ELC, don't think they still sell it. x

    :dohh: it looked like a second part to the house that closes over. Thanks for clearing that up. They both look great!

    We have the ELC dolls mansion and it is great, I got it on sale and with a code, we paid £64. It will last my DD years. We do have a small rosebud cottage and a few sets but she does not play with them very much.

    So you would deco recommend the Annabelle one? Pingu can you remember when it went on sale? Everyone keeps talking about the half term sale and I'm just wondering should I hold out till then or was it later/closer to Xmas thanks :flower:
