Best KidKraft Dollhouse 2017 – Ultimate Buying Guide
Why Choose Kidcraft?
We will be looking at and giving honest reviews of the most popular KidKraft Dollhouses
Dollhouses have been around for many years - originating as far as we can tell from a Bavarian Duke in the sixteenth century. For many years after this, it was considered a hobby amongst the aristocracy and higher classes to collect them partly as a measure of wealth.
With the industrial revolution allowing mass production to take root it, became much easier for dollhouses to be built for the mass market. Back then, most nurseries included a dollhouse as a way to teach girls about the domestic duties they would have to perform in the future. Nowadays whilst they are purely used for fun for the kids and can be aimed towards both genders they are still mainly for girls but also for anyone who likes to design things as there are still plenty of adult dollhouses. In our guide we are simply looking at the designs that have been lovingly created by KidKraft as well as looking at their KidKraft Dollhouse furniture and KidKraft dollhouse Accessories.

What Do I Need to Look For When Buying my Child a new Dollhouse?
There are so many dollhouses on the market these days that it can be a pretty daunting prospect to look for a new dollhouse for your kids. So we have broken it down into a list of important features you need to look for. We will help you find the ideal KidKraft Dollhouse (and accessories) that your children can enjoy for years to come.
- Size of Dollhouse
- Size of Rooms and Dolls Play Area
- Building Materials
- How many Children?
The location you are thinking of placing the dollhouse plays a massive part in choosing the right dollhouse for your home. If you do not have very much room you will have to choose a smaller dollhouse- not that this matters to much as there is plenty of great dollhouses that can fit in smaller homes, you just need to be sure it will fit in your child’s play area so be sure to check the dimensions when browsing. If the dimensions are not listed in the item description it is usually stated on the manufacturers website under technical information.
To help you with your decision we will list the dimensions alongside the dollhouses we review here.
Another important aspect to look at when buying your new dollhouse is making sure you know beforehand what kind of dolls you child would like to use in the house. There is many smaller dolls that get used in dollhouses but many of the KidKraft doll houses have big room sizes which allows your child to use full size fashion dolls such as Barbies, Bratz and many other famous brands that your child may already have.
This may sound more like something you need to look out for when buying a real house but it is very important to know what sort of materials are used for making your dollhouse. As for younger children it may be prudent to buy a dollhouse that is mainly hardwearing plastic until they are old enough to care for the more expensive solid wood / mdf versions.
You also need to be aware of how many children will be using your new dollhouse at one time as if it is mainly going to be just one or two children playing then a smaller one may suffice but if you will regularly be having more children playing with it then KidKraft have many available that are big enough to have multiple kids playing without feeling cramped with feature such as outside play areas and wide windows.
