K's Toys Review #1: Little Princess Dolls' House and Accessories
We were not planning on buying a big dolls' house yet for our 2 year old mainly because we all know that dolls' houses alone can be very pricey. On top of that, the accessories that go in it can also be quite expensive. Although I really wanted to get one because it is a good way to encourage role-playing, I decided to hold back until maybe Christmas.
BUT, about a month or so ago, while we were at Home Bargains I saw this Little Princess Dolls House. It was only sold for £14.99 yet it is quite a big one at over 1 metre tall. Most dolls' houses this size would cost at least around £50 so for the price alone, I knew I had to get it. Although it is not made of wood, in fact it is made of fabric and lightweight materials, it is still quite sturdy and good quality. The fact the it is easily assembled for use and folded flat for storage is a major plus too especially if you do not have that much space at home. It does not come with any furniture or dolls but the illustrations are beautiful and detailed which makes it really attractive.

After getting the dolls' house I started looking for furniture that can go in it. There are so many beautiful ones that you can find online however, a lot of them are very pricey as most are sold per piece or per room set. I was also looking for big ones to match the scale of the dolls' house however, I found out that those are even more expensive and harder to find.
So I finally decided to just get the most common scale size which is a bit smaller than what's most appropriate for the house but still big enough for toddlers to play with. I was going to get a starter set from ebay or Amazon that costs around £25. Fortunately, I saw this Wooden Dolls House Accessories on Asda's website for only £15. It comes with 16 starter furniture pieces that can go to the different rooms of the house plus 4 dolls.
When they arrived, they came well packed and the pieces are well made. The colours are very nice and as seen on the box and the drawers and doors are also movable which is great.

All in all I am very happy with this toy set. A lovely dolls' house with furniture/accessories for just under £30. More importantly, our LO loves it!
