KidKraft My Dreamy Dollhouse with Furniture Review
Like other KidKraft dollhouses, the My Dreamy Dollhouse is big. But it’s not so big that play becomes overwhelming or the house is difficult for you, the parents, to put together.
It’s just the right height for kids. There’s plenty of room to play, and everything is just within reach. More than one kid can play at a time, so this house is great for parties, playdates or for siblings to share.
But the size of the dollhouse is just the start of the great things this model has to offer.
14 Furniture Pieces
If you’ve bought other dollhouses before, you know that some models don’t come with any furniture at all. On top of the cost of the dollhouse, you’re forced to pay extra for dolls and furniture. After all, you don’t want to give your child an empty dollhouse.
With the My Dreamy dollhouse, you get 14 pieces of furniture. In my opinion, this is more than you’ll ever need. KidKraft includes the following furniture pieces:
- Bed with linens
- Vanity and stool
- Curtains and curtain rod
- Hanging plant
- Piano and bench
- Table and two chairs
- Standing Lamp
Many of the furniture pieces are made from high quality wood, and feature bright colors kids will love. The 14 furniture pieces is enough to cover all three floors of the home, so no room is left empty.
3 Floors, Four Rooms and Two Balconies
The My Dreamy KidKraft dolls house features three floors, four rooms, two balconies and an elevator.
The first floor features a front door, kitchen and bathroom. The pink table and chairs complements the bright blue flooring and green walls in the space. Over in the bathroom, a claw foot tub and a modern toilet are found with a sink and green mirror depicted on the room’s mural.
To get to the second floor, dolls can ride the elevator, which simply glides up and down all three floors. The living room is on the second floor. Inside, you’ll find a green chaise for dolls to lounge on. A standing lamp lights up the room, while the black piano plays music for you and your guests. This room features bright blue wallpaper on the background mural with beautiful details, like a fireplace, two pink chairs, a table and two stunning windows. There’s also a doorway in the living room that leads to the first balcony where dolls can relax and enjoy some fresh air.
The third floor is the bedroom, which features a purple bed, purple vanity, and bright pink curtains. Background mural features include brightly colored wallpaperand the details of other essentials that you find in a girl’s bedroom. Just off the bedroom is another balcony with a hanging plant.
The second and third floors also have windows with movable shutters, so kids can look into the dollhouse from different angles while playing. And when it comes time to go to bed, shutters can be closed to ensure that dolls have a restful night of sleep.
Each room is wonderfully detailed, which helps bring the house to life. My Dreamy is truly a deluxe dollhouse.
Accommodates Barbie-Sized Dolls
I do want to note that this dollhouse accommodates Barbie-sized dolls only. Smaller dolls can also work, but they may not fit onto furniture as well. Larger dolls will not be able to stand up in any of the rooms or fit on the furniture properly.
Noise and Lights
One thing kids will love about this dollhouse is that a few of the furniture pieces light up or make noise. The toilet makes a flushing sound, and the piano plays music. The standing lamp lights up, so dolls can see at night.
These features are easily activated by pressing a button on the furniture piece. The noise and sound add just a few more elements to this house that will really spark a kid’s imagination.
Oh, I almost forgot to mention: batteries are included for the furniture pieces that light up or make noise.
Durable and Easy to Assemble
KidKraft is known for their durable, high-quality dollhouses – and this model is no exception. My Dreamy Dollhouse is made of composite wood products, so it will provide your child with years of use.
While durability is important, assembly is just as important. The last thing you want is to spend the entire day putting a dollhouse together. You won’t have to do that with this model. The entire house comes packaged with detailed, step-by-step assembly instructions. Altogether, assembly will take about four hours.
If you think that sounds like a lot of time, consider how many countless hours of playtime and joy your child will get out of playing with this house.
If you’re searching for a durable, sturdy and well-designed dollhouse, you can’t go wrong with the My Dreamy Dollhouse. With a lamp that lights up, a piano that plays music, and an elevator that glides, this house comes to life when kids play with it.
