The Fancy Dollhouse
Dollhouse Pricy or affordable
We want to give our children, family and friends special things for their birthdays or for Christmas, but fancy dollhouses can be very pricey. I saw one company that charges almost 2,000 dollars for their fancy dollhouses. You can build one yourself if you're crafty enough, they have kits that are normally far cheaper than buying one pre-made. I have also seen a kit that costs almost 900 dollars.
So what dollhouse or kit is the best price? I will give you examples of different houses in different price points to help you make up your mind. I also will add videos of people making these dollhouse entirely on their own with and without the aid of kits.
This Dollhouse kit is only 45 dollars, it comes in a puzzle like kit, unpainted. Which gives you the option of choosing any color you like, inside and out. You can even wallpaper these house, a lot of the houses are plan like this one.

There is nothing to cut or glue. The 3D Puzzles are even paint able if desired.
