Tested by dad Toby Dudley for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow parent?

This was very quick and easy to build, the instructions were easy to follow. It all fitted together well and feels really sturdy. I would definitely have expected it to have cost more than it did, great value to money. The only bit I didn't like was the removable flowers in the sides. They're pointless as they don't add anything to the structure and will just get lost really easily.  My son really enjoyed playing with it and I can see it's good for his imagination, I just wish it were a bit more of a unisex design.

How does this product make your life easier as a dad?

It kept my little boy occupied for quite a while and he likes all the moving parts. It was quick to build which is good when you have an impatient 3 year old waiting for it.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

Make it less pink and leave off the removable flower pots on the side.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

The dolls house is great for my 3 year old. It is well designed for little hands and I think 3-5 is the prefect age. Easy to put together, great colours and stylish design. Easy clean wood and the windows & doors are secure for little fingers. I would also recommend purchasing the additional furniture set at £15, there is loads of bits and pieces to keep her entertained. Overall great value for money and an amazing dolls house!

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

This product keeps my little girl entertained for hours. She plays with all of her dolls and ponies in the house and it has made her one happy little girl.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

The only thing I could suggest to improve this dolls house is the little flower pot wedges which help secure the house, I would say these need to be tighter or attached to the house as my little girl likes to take them out. I'm not sure how it would affect the stability of the house if these wedges were misplaced.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

This product offers amazing value for money. I was amazed at the quality for the £35 price tag. Despite the colour being very pink, my son was thrilled with it and has played with it a lot. He really likes putting the little bush pegs back in the sides too and has been using his imagination a lot to play little games. It feels like it will last for a long time and is very sturdy.  The instructions for assembly were simple to follow and it didn't take very long to put together. It's not too big either so it's fairly easy to store.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

It's not too big to store and children of both genders enjoyed playing with it together. Anything that gets them playing together is great in my book.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

The little flowers that go in the side like pegs are lovely, and my son enjoyed playing with them, but I do worry they'll get lost. Not sure they're entirely necessary. That said, I do like them!

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow parent?

I would recommend this product as it is great value for money and great for a 4 year old. It was really easy to construct and has provided hours of play for my daughter.

How does this product make your life easier as a dad?

It keeps my daughter occupied and encouraged her imaginative play.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

The only think I could suggest is the addition of an outside garden space or to include more interactive aspects such as a doorbell.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

Excellent value for money. This is every little girl’s dream. The colours are wonderfully pink and the pieces are so intricate and well-designed . My little one spent hours playing with their friend with lots of imagination. A beautiful toy.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

Hours of pleasure for little girls and it looks fabulous as well to look at. I couldn't believe the value for such an affordable present as well. I wish I had this when I was a little girl. It's a dream.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I think this is the perfect product and just love the extra box of accessories that are so cute and well-made.

Tested by mum Emily Bennett for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

I would definitely recommend this product to a friend as it has a beautiful girly butterfly design. It is very easy to assemble with minimum tools required and a fantastic and ingenious use of the plant pots to hold the sides together. They even provide spare screws just in case you lose a few! It has beautiful shutters on the windows and a hinged roof so you can play in the attic. Great quality and a fantastic design.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

When I introduced this dolls house to my daughter her eyes lit up and she was so excited. All the moving windows, doors and roof kept her entertained for hours. This product is colorful, looks great and is a fantastic value for money. There is also a matching furniture set to go with it that doesn't disappoint.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

There are 2 things I would change about this product: 1. The stairs are not the same color as the rest of the house. 2. I can see my daughter taking out the plant pots which hold the entire house together - perhaps add some screws to hold the pots in place. 3. The screws that hold the door open need improving / strengthening as my daughter managed to break them quite easily.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

From the minute my daughter saw this item she fell in love with it. For the price the quality is great and fairs up pretty well to the comparable more expensive versions. She will sit for large lengths of time playing with all the furniture and dolls. The build is good so even though the doors and shutters get slammed regularly they are holding up well.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

In the morning my daughter will go and play with this toy allowing the vital extra few minutes in bed.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

Maybe have a more neutral coloured version so I could buy for nephews.

Tested by Chris Pain for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow parent?

I would recommend this product to anyone with a daughter or a young female in the family. The instructions are easy to follow which makes assembly a doddle. The materials used are high quality and the finish is great. The design of the house allows play time to be fun and all areas of the house to be accessible including the attic. The colouring and patterns are all great and give the house a really good feel.

How does this product make your life easier as a parent?

All of the moving parts keep my little one entertained for hours and the movable roof giving attic access is particularly impressive. The matching furniture set adds great value to the experience of playing in and around the house.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I would look at changing 2 things about the house.  I would change the screws that hold the doors on as after a while my child managed to pull them off.  Also, I would fix the plant pots that hold the house together with screws as this will not take long for my child to destroy it.
