    Poorly Done

    Let me start by saying I had read reviews, and I knew better than to buy this. But, Santa is committed to making dreams come , so here we are. This is made of pressed wood, more like dense cardboard really, but dense enough to need screws to hold it together. The instructions that come with it are useful only for the furniture assembly later on, the actual house instructions had to be downloaded and printed. The poorly applied film over the boards that make up the decoration for the house was peeling a bit out of the box. There was also a strong, chemical odor when opening the box that eventually drifted away, but I'm sure was on some list of things that shouldn't be inhaled. It was about a two hour assembly process, and it went well with the downloaded instructions. This comes with a little cardboard moving truck, containing all the "surprises" for the dollhouse, and is one of the big selling points for kids. You have to open the truck and pull out some of them to get the house assembled, which kind of takes away some of the fun from the kids. A couple of notes about the final product: -It has a section with a pull out pool and hot tub. -The pool and hot tub are plastic and obviously made to be filled with water -Many LOL dolls have features that work well in water -Children like to play with water -Water will ruin this dollhouse It has already been an issue. A little water spilled from a cup even, and the bedroom floor in the second story is ruined. This is poorly designed, overpriced, and I am not happy about it. That being said, there is one positive that has come from this experience, and that is a new appreciation for the people at Mattel. For a comparison, I also assembled the newest Barbie Dream House, comparably priced and much larger, on the same night. It was a total of 35 minutes spent from start to finish, fantastic and easy to follow instructions (in color, no less), and completely made of plastic and ready for water play. Compared to this mess, Barbie truly has a Dream House.

      Thank you for sharing your opinion. After initial production, some minor changes were made to the LOL Surprise House; one being to improve the water resistance on the areas designed for water play. Assembly skill sets vary, this house can typically be completed within 45 - 60 minutes, particularly when assembling it while watching the amazing assembly video on LOL.com. We understand that opinions differ, and so please accept our position that MGA Entertainment LOL Surprise Doll house is not even comparable in nature to the Barbie house. LOL RULES! MGA

    Daughter LOVED it, but not great quality

    My daughter was obsessed with getting this for her birthday and was so happy to receive it, I have no regrets. That being said, you are probably paying more for the pre-packaged 80 plus “surprises” that come individually wrapped in a cardboard moving truck than for the poor quality doll house. Well, the elevator track was glued on crooked at the factory and we couldn’t slide the elevator up and down as a result. Even If it it was glued on properly, it is really hard to move it up and down anyway. I have filed a claim with the company to replace the piece with the elevator track, but I did not receive a confirmation that they received my complaint or as to the status of my claim. And yet, they are quite explicit that if you don’t have a receipt or file a claim within 30 days of purchase, they will just ignore you.

    Once together it will be enjoyed but how long it stays together is another thing all together. For the price I would have thought an area that contains pools of water would not be made out of MDF. The material just doesn't hold up to normal color changing play by a child. The instructions for the build are terrible and the online video is full of jump cuts so good luck following that as well. If the instruction were just a little deeper on the details it could have been done in half the time. BB want a yes or no recommendation but I think it comes down to how big a fan your child is of LOLs.

    A Real Dollhouse

    This doll house is actually a real dollhouse made of wood. It is truly sturdy and is something that will last for years to come. A bit of advice, watch the instructional video and put it together as the video goes. That made it so much easier for me. I’ve heard the horror stories of how long it took a lot of people to put together. It would also be much better if the instructi Ms would be in color instead of black & white.

    This dollhouse is surprisingly very well made. It’s not too complicated to put together but it is tedious because of the amount of pieces. It’s best to follow the instructions and go in order because for some of the parts there’s a reason why they did it in that order. My 4 year old plays with it every single day. And people that come over also comment on it all the time.

    It was very hard to build and the instructions were at first confusing but I understood it once I looked online and read a little. It did take about 1-2 hours but well worth it. The home is so beautiful and when done right sturdy. It’s still standing strong and it’s a nice touch. Even the unboxing experience was pleasant

    My granddaughter wanted LOL stuff for Christmas only asking for the small stuff though, she isn’t a girly girl so I was excited she wanted lol stuff, we got her this, she was excited beyond belief, larger than expected. She loves it and even her little brother likes playing with it with her. Has more than your average “doll house” in it ! Pretty cool !

    Kids love this doll house. The only negative is you need to keep referring back to the box image to ensure you are assembling correctly. The directions do not indicate very easily the correct orientation of pieces. This adds to the construction time. Made of good material though and should last through all three of my girls.

    Just bought this as a xmas present so we haven't used it yet but I did open the box to check it out. Its heavy which is good so hopefully it will be sturdy. It's very colorful which my daughter will love. The truck holding all the blind bag surprises is large (made of cardboard) overall it looks like it will be lots of fun.

    My daughter loves Lols and this house was something she wanted so bad, I as a parent thought it is pretty price for the quality of the house, not the best quality design was lifted from wood, and wood had some bad areas like if it had been used before when it was bought brand new

    This house should be recalled. After 3 months of having this doll house. The elevator came off (sticky 2 way tape) leaving a nail exposed and that same day the pool part completely fell apart leaving nails and screws exposed. Never seen such poor quality cost so much.

      It is unfortunate that you have had this experience. The LOL Surprise House has been wildly popular and has received much attention. This house does not include any nails. It uses only screws and when properly assembled they should not become exposed. MGA

    I gave it to my great niece for her 4th birthday. Her dad put it together and he said it was the best made doll house he has put together ever. Extremely sturdy and durable. I’ve seen it together and it looks great. My niece loves it.

    My granddaughter is all about LOL dolls and accessories and loves the LOL dollhouse. The dollhouse is made of good materials and very sturdy when put together correctly. It does take some time to put together so plan to put together when u have time.

    Purchased as a gift for Christmas. Item came as expected but putting it together was a bit challenging due to the provided instructions. I ultimately used youtube vids to figure it out. Once it was done my child loved it.

    This has to be the cutest thing ever. I think I had more fun opening it up than my daughter. Packaging was awesome. Made you feel like you actually bought a new house. Great attention to detail.

    The house is made of compressed wood. Very cheaply made. You have to be very careful putting in the screws or you will break it. Elevator gets stuck. Some parts of the decor begin to peel off.
