Choosing the perfect dolls house and accessories

The first thing to think about when you are choosing a dolls house and accessories as a gift is who the dolls house is for.  Is it a gift for a young child, an older child, or an adult enthusiast ?  What kind of budget are you looking at?  Do you want a house that is already painted and just ready to decorate inside, or would you prefer an unpainted one that can be customised?  Are you looking for a kit or a house that is already made ?  Do you know where the dolls house will be kept and what size would be best for the space available? These are all important factors to bear in mind when choosing your dolls house. 

Once you have made these basic decisions we have handpicked a selection of our favourite dolls houses and accessories to help narrow down your search further.  These have been chosen based on our most popular bestsellers and positive feedback from previous customers.  We have highlighted the relevant features to help make your decision easier – good luck !

Great dolls houses for young children

Everyone knows that creative play is fantastic for a child’s development and what better toy for encouraging both independent and social play with others than a dolls house?  We stock a fantastic range of dolls houses for children to suit all ages, tastes and budgets.  Here are a few of our most popular.

Diamond Wooden dolls house kit – perfect for budding builders
Children just love our diamond wooden dolls house kit

Complete with furniture and easy to follow instructions it’s perfect for any child who loves playing with dolls houses but is also keen to roll their sleeves up and get involved in the building work first (with a little bit of help from you, of course!).  Once the hard work is over they can then move the furniture in, also included in this great value kit.   Then let the play begin!

If you’re after a classic charming wooden Victorian dolls house you can’t beat the traditional Exmouth range

Spread over 3 floors with easy opening doors that split open at the front this dolls house is every child’s dream.  It opens up to reveal 6 rooms to furnish, explore and spend hours of imaginative play in.  You can even remove the interior walls to make the rooms larger or smaller as you wish!  With a fully tiled shingle roof, 2 staircases, large projecting bay windows and a veranda with columns, banisters and railings the attention to detail is impressive.  What’s more, the easy to follow instructions won’t leave you tearing your hair out – all you need is a tube of glue, a Phillips screwdriver and a big mug of your favourite hot drink while you settle down to build it!

With the Exmouth range you can also choose whether you prefer the basic unpainted model (which comes with furniture or without furniture), or the prettily painted version in pink or cream, again either with furniture or without furniture.  And, if you’re keen to extend the house further, either now or at a later stage, the Exmouth has an optional basement which can be easily fitted.

Lilac, beautiful and ready to go !

This striking Lilac Lavender dolls house comes ready made with all painted furniture, and even includes the dolls.  It makes a great present for eager little hands keen to tear off the paper and get playing straight away. 

There’s plenty to amuse and entertain; the front swings open to reveal the gorgeous interior and the roof lifts up to allow access to the attic.  Even the little doors on the cupboards and drawers open and close!  

Families seek loving owner !

Our smiley, happy wooden dolls house family make a great addition to any young child’s dolls house. Suitable for children aged 3 and upwards they are dressed in  real clothing, have moveable arms and legs and full heads of woollen hair.  Mum, dad, little boy and girl are all looking for good homes to live in and a friendly owner to play with them !

Glenside Grange  - a stylish georgian mansion

Another of our extremely popular bestsellers with older children and adult collectors, this 2-storey Georgian mansion has a hinged roof attic and split front opening doors for easy access.  The painted models are available in a lovely lemon or pastel pink, with beautiful white painted windows.  Opting for the painted model means you can just get straight on with the interior decorating, furnishing and moving the family in!
