Chad Valley 3 Storey Glamour Dolls House Review

I vividly remember tearing the wrapping paper from the dolls house my Grandad lovingly made for me back in the 80s.  I still have it today, and despite my daughter repeatedly asking about it, I have been a little apprehensive about passing it on to as it is very precious and small hands sometimes get a little bit too excited.

So when we were sent the 3 Storey Glamour Mansion from Chad Valley at Argos, my daughter was ecstatic. I'm not sure what I expected the finished article to look like, but it certainly a grand affair. It stands taller than my daughter and each floor is the perfect size for an upright Barbie.

The detail is great, each room comes with decorations and it even has little dangling chandeliers. Unlike some dolls houses this one comes with furniture, big enough for a reclining Barbie and for me this is a huge plus.

Handily, despite its height, the house isn't particularly deep and so fits neatly my daughter’s bedroom and isn’t too obtrusive.  The colour scheme is modern and bright and coordinates well with any child's bedroom.

My daughter was overjoyed as she oversaw the dolls house being built; it took my partner about an hour to build maybe a bit longer including the furniture and his general confusion (!). But as it stands at over a metre high, this was expected.

The doll’s house is currently on offer at £32.99 which I think is a excellent price for something so big and sturdy.

We were also sent a slot car set and a classic board game set which has been great fun for my son as he has been playing chess at school, it is also perfect for our games evenings.

I can’t express how impressed I have been with the dolls house, it's been a real hit and is light and easy to move around.  We've had it set up in the lounge, in the dining room and is currently taking pride of place my daughters bedroom.
