Elmo has a new home

R.’s birthday is on Monday, and my Mom has been wanting to get R. a dollhouse for a while now.    We put it together and gave it to her yesterday so she would be able to play with it this weekend.

She noticed it the second she came in the house.  She was all smiles and saying oh yay while she investigated the entire house.  The house came with a Mom, Dad and twin baby dolls.  She loves the Dad doll, she brought him to dinner (a space usually reserved for only Elmo and Ernie)

The dollhouse is the Fisher Price Loving Family Dollhouse.  My Mom and I spent a few months researching the dollhouses and this seemed like the best one.  I do kind of wish it wasn’t pink, but I think R. likes that it is. She likes pink.  The house was easy to put together, and it is very sturdy.  She has been trying to sit on the side rooms.  I guess they do kind of look like a seat.

The house has no electronics, which is fine with me.  All the furniture seems to light up or make sounds.  I do think it would have been nice to have a working doorbell, even an old school no battery one.

  1. Very cute. I hope she has a great birthday!

  2. Oh I wish we had researched doll houses enough…any of the ones we have bought..well..they have made great step stools! 🙂 I can’t stand all the stuff that makes noise and lights up…I always feel that more time is spent making it work and changing batteries rather than just playing with it..

  3. I’m glad she seems to like the doll house. I’m with Kathleen on the lights and sounds. I hated all those toys that made noise or lite up when my kids were small.
