From balconies to furniture, nowadays you can even get your hands on dollhouses with special features like elevators and slides. The bigger the better!
They don't have to be so expensive though, with dollhouses, sometimes all you need is a place to play and the dolls to go with it. We've found the best dollhouses from the most extravagant, value and smaller options.
What is a good age for a dollhouse?
From a young age, children will start to play with toys and dolls. For dollhouses though, we recommend purchasing these toys for children over the age of three years old.
As these toys often come with smaller items and accessories, it's not recommended for these younger children as small parts can be hazardous.
On the other hand, dollhouses can last years and years so can be an investment for your child to play with for as long as they like to. Some people keep hold of their dollhouses to pass down generations!
What's the most popular dollhouse?
You'll always find classics around, such as Barbie and Kidkraft, which whip up a storm year-in, year-out. Often these most popular brands will have multiple dollhouses to choose from, with loads of exciting features.
There are lots of other popular dollhouses to choose from now, including hand-made, wooden crafted dollhouses. Many sellers on Etsy and Not On The High Street offer personalised dollhouses too.
It's really up to you which dollhouse you want to invest in. Think about what your child will enjoy the most, but also what you can afford to buy.
