I ordered this toy for my 3-year-old grandson because he loved playing with my daughter's Fisher-Price Loving FamilyTM Grand Dollhouse. Because of that model's size and many pieces, however, this smaller starter house seemed to be more suitable for his developmental age.
This toy comes in one box and requires minimal assembly. The set contains a couple of parts that snap into place to build the rest of the home, 3 people: a mom, dad, and baby, a little car (that holds only two of the people), and a couple of little extra pieces for the house. It is a perfect set for a first "dollhouse" that any boy or girl can enjoy.
The house: has three floors and all the rooms you would expect in a house. There are some moving parts, but nothing that would require too much fine motor skill for a young child. There are various objects that, when pushed, will make a sound: a toilet flushing, a phone ringing, songs about good morning and good night from the clock, the stairs, etc. I think it is interesting, however, that the bed wasn't actually made long enough to fit the dolls in to have them lie down.
The people: there are no movable parts on the dolls. They are just one solid piece -- you can't move arms or legs, they can't sit down or hold anything. As I said, probably fine for a first dollhouse set.
The car: not sure why they made a vehicle labeled as "SUV" when it really only holds two of the three dolls. I would have preferred one that held all the dolls!
The sounds are cute and thankfully there is not a constant noise coming from the house. You can turn off the sounds or choose not to push the buttons to activate the songs. My grandson might be on the older side for the product, but it is perfect for him right now. He loves playing with the house and the people and all the songs and noises. I give it 4 stars only because I think it would be more fun for him if the dolls could be bent to sit or had moving parts, and if the car actually held all the dolls at one time.
One of the best things about this set is that it requires minimal effort to pick it up and put it away as there aren't a lot of pieces to keep track of. I think he'll enjoy playing with this for a long time!
