Melissa and Doug Fold & Go Woodland Dollhouse

As explained in my previous post, I am selling some of my dollhouses.  One of them is my first wooden dollhouse.  I think it might even be my first dollhouse period.  Since I will put it up for sale, I might as well write a review about it before it goes away.

I saw the Melissa & Doug Fold & Go Woodland Treehouse many years ago and fell instantly in love with its whimsical design.  The title says treehouse but it's really a dollhouse.  There are doors to both the front and back.


Included in the dollhouse are :
  • 2 beds
  • 2 chairs
  • 1 table
  • 1 ladder
  • 1 plush bunny
  • 1 plush bear

The furniture are well-made and carefully painted.  There is a nick in the ladder so it can latch on to the dollhouse without falling.  The plush animals are very cute and soft.

What I love about this dollhouse is that you can open the doors to the full extent and they stay open or close thanks to clever strings. 

The inside of the dollhouse is left in its natural wood state, which is great because you can customize it the way you want or you can leave it as is.  I think it's also quite roomy!

The exterior of the dollhouse is beautifully painted! Even the handles are painted! It's colorful but not overwhelming.   I love the bold color of the doors against the wood and nature background. Look at the details of the painting!


There is a balcony/rooftop with plenty of space for furniture or create a garden.


This dollhouse fits Calico Critters (aka Sylvanian Families).

It also fits smaller dolls like the Mini Lalaloopsy.


The dollhouse can also fit Strawberry Shortcake Mini dolls, Playmobil people, and other small figures, but it is too small for Little Dal/Little Pullip dolls.  

I wanted to give the dollhouse to my baby daughter as she started to show a great interest in my bigger dollhouse ^_^   It's sturdy enough to withstand any rough play.  But I will have other dollhouse for her eventually.  I really like this one so I am a little sad to see it go away.

  5. Adorable dollhouse and furniture. I love the simplicity of the inside walls. So many dollhouses today have everything pre-printed on the walls! That leaves little room for creativity. xo Jennifer
