Review of the Hape All Seasons House – Furnished
From the moment you unpack this dollhouse, you’ll notice one thing: its environmentally-focused design. Similar to the ones made by Plan Toys, they come with earthy tones and a roof that changes with the seasons, kids will love playing with this dollhouse all year long.
Four Room Sets
The All Season dollhouse comes with four room sets: Master Bedroom, Family Bathroom, Media Room and Kitchen. The Master Bedroom features a bed (complete with linens), armoire, nightstand with mirror, a stool, throw rug and standing lamp.
The Family Bathroom features bright blue and earthy wood tones. A stand-up shower, bathtub, sink and toilet are included as well as a rubber ducky and a mini towel.
The Kitchen comes with everything kids need to bring their imaginary culinary creations to life. Each kitchen set comes with a stove (complete with two pots), sink and countertop (with towel and standing mixer), and a refrigerator.
The Media Room features a wooden fireplace, coffee table with rug, chair, sofa, television, standing lamp and an adorable houseplant.
Hape has included just about all the furniture your child will need to enjoy hours of playtime. All furniture pieces are made of wood and feature child-friendly paint. Linens are included with the beds, and all doors – from the armoire to the cabinets – are fully functional.
If that’s not enough you can also find many more fantastic Hape dollhouse furniture sets online.
With the All Season dollhouse, kids have the freedom to choose how they want to play. There are six rooms total, and each room can be used however the child wants.
Most rooms feature a picture window, so kids can play from either side of the house. The stairs are movable, too, which allows kids to lay out the room however they please.
Just about every aspect of this dollhouse was designed to promote an environmentally-conscious lifestyle. The roof features solar panels and painted green leaves. Three bright green bushes are painted right on the front exterior, too. The solid wood features and earthy colors tie the look together.
The dollhouse itself is made from eco-friendly materials, including Maple, Rubberwood and Baltic Birch derived from FSC managed forests.
On top of all this, child-friendly paint is used. As parents, we know how concerning paint can be on wooden toys, but Hape ensures that all of their toys feature paint that’s lead-free and safe for children.
Hape allows you to find peace of mind in knowing that your kids can play with safe toys – without harming the environment in the process.
A House for All Seasons
One of the fun things about this Hape dollhouse is that kids can change it to match the seasons. During the spring, summer and fall, the roof can stay green with solar panels and painted green leaves. In the winter, the roof can be flipped over to display a snow-covered rooftop.
While this may be a small feature, it’s one that really helps kids use their imaginations. As the seasons change in real life, the seasons change in their lives of their imaginary friends.
Some wooden dollhouses are a nightmare to put together, but the All Season doll’s house is incredibly easy to assemble.
Hape includes illustrated instructions that make it even easier. Altogether, it takes about 10 minutes to completely assemble this dollhouse.
If you’ve put together other dollhouses in the past, you’ll appreciate how simple the All Seasons house is.
Numerous Accessories Available
Hape includes furniture to help you get started, but you can purchase wooden families to live inside the home as well as other accessories. Some of the accessories include: a home gym, the family car, baby’s room, children’s room, playground, patio set, and a dining room.
When doing your research you may also come across this same dollhouse without the furniture. We highly recommend you purchase the model that comes fully furnished. They are really well made and super cute. For the extra $20 or so you won’t be able to replace the accessories that come with the furnished set.
