Every Christmas for the past fourteen years a dollhouse has made its way to our family’s Christmas list. Having four daughters means girly gifts like these are a Christmas staple for our family.
Starting with my oldest daughter when she was two, I have put a lot of thought into each dollhouse purchase. When my oldest girls were little, durability was important. As they got older, BIG dollhouses were what they wanted. Now, quality is where I am leaning since they are capable of taking care of something a little nicer.
I have the Melissa & Doug Classic Heirloom Victorian Doll House on my mind, but I’m not sure if my girls are going to love it as much as I DO! I mean, look at how beautiful it is! All wood and tons of accessories. The price is almost too good to be true at just above $100! Take a look for yourself and tell me how much you would expect to pay for something like this:
Scale 1:12. 30 x 23 x 16.5 boxed, 26.5 x 28 x 18 assembled. Ages 6+.

My girls enjoyed the Calico Critters Luxury Townhome Gift Set for several years before passing it along to a friend who is a “big fan” of the Calico Critters collection last month. Their favorite thing was making their own wall paper for the home, and how life-like all of the lighting in the house was.

My youngest daughter’s birthday is just before Christmas and this is what we are getting her. I knew it would be her very first doll house from the moment I saw it. I can just see her little fingers wrapped around the Cinderella Little People doll — aghh, I just can’t wait until she unwraps it! Keep a lookout on Instagram next month so you can see those first moments too!
