Our Holzkram Farmhouse w/ Stable arrived yesterday! We are in love with it! I posted a few pictures here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/zuzu822...7604068978364/ It was definitely the right choice!

I (the original poster) am FINALLY posting photos of our treehouse here. The treehouse is made by Tree Blocs. And thanks to a tip from a fellow mom here on MDC, the furniture and dolls are from Seasons Natural Toys.

We LOVE this treehouse and all its accessories. : I ordered a kitchen from Seasons too, but it's the wrong scale (too big). Oops.

Urban Crunchy Mama- WOW! Love how you set it up! Where did you get the dolls? Did you felt the campfire pit yourself? It looks awesome!

Zuzu- It's gorgeous, now I wish I ordered the holzkram :}

How heavy are your kinderkram and elves and angels houses? DH is building ours right now, and we don't have a planer...soo...it's going to be HEAVY. Like, at least 50lbs.....

You don't want the kids lifting it up, do you? I should think that heavy = sturdy, and I wouldn't worry about it.

We have the one from Plan Toys that you can add a separate basement/third floor to if you want to make it taller. My daughter loves it. It is very well made and very simple. We decorate it all the time. It allows for lots of imagination. We bought it from Amazon. : )

Nope, you're right. I have one of those free Flickr accounts where you can only have two sets, so I swapped the farmhouse of the diapers. Try this:

We're getting our girls a Plan Toys dollhouse for Christmas. It's not classically Waldorfy, but we aren't purists, so we're fine with that. I love all the Waldorfy houses, but they're just too pricey for us, even without the furniture and dolls. I found the Plan Toys "Chalet" dollhouse for around 130.00, furniture included, and the doll family for around 14.00. I can't wait to give it to them!

I just bought a gorgeous wooden one off of ebay last night for $60, and it even came with some furniture, which we may or may not replace (this is actually next year's Christmas present). This one looks like a more traditonal dollhouse because I'm not particularly fond of the Waldorf-styled ones (just my taste, I guess ).

Right now there are 4 Amish-made, Waldorf-style dollhouses on ebay listed for "buy it now" at $134 plus s/h ($15). They look a lot like the Elves and Angels ones but are much cheaper and still made by hand. Just thought I'd pass along the info.

I really liked the openness of the Kinderkram dollhouse. My husband built a similar one for our little one seen here http://ourdayourjourney.blogspot.com...-wash-day.html
I always get a lot of emails about the dolls, which as Evi and the dollhouse furniture is Spiel & Holz. I am hoping he will build a Kinderkram stable next.

Looks really nice! I've been trying to figure out how to make little dolls like the Evi ones, but they're turning out to be trickier than I thought! Heads are easy. Skeletons are not. Might have to suck it up and just buy the dolls. But I really wanted to try and make some that look like our family.

I like the Kinderkram dollhouse too, and if we had more than one child, it would be awesome with enough floor-space to have it out in the middle. But with just one, lately I've been leaning toward the Seri's Dollhouse style. Lots of room and really sturdy, and works well up against the wall. I loooove the Drewart one for ME since it's so beautiful, but I think my son will have more fun with the Seri's one or something like it. And the Drewart one doesn't seem to have a lot of room for furniture. Maybe I'm wrong there.

In the mean-time, I'm doing my usual M.O....collecting accessories gradually. They're not fancy, but I've been getting one room of Ryan's Room at a time gradually. They're inexpensive and very sturdy for little hands. So they will do the trick. Hopefully by Christmas we'll have our dollhouse!

Just wanted to say that I have just bought a family of Evi dolls from Quiet Hours toys and had them shipped over to the UK. They were quite pricey per doll but they are absolutely stunningly well made. My LO loves them. So we got the dressable ones and in the near future I will be buying the pajamas for them. I could only afford two at a time but when the first two arrived I was so happy with them that I got on and ordered the rest of the family right away.

(i asked for the mum in the red dress and jacket though like she is wearing in the blonde family, i prefered it!) So I had a mum, dad, and girl in brunette and another girl in blonde, to match out family!


I am buying the Spiel and Holtz furniture to go with it (haven't decided which pieces yet) and am also getting this:

we had a beautiful wooden dolls house but it just wasn't working out, my LO simply wasn't playing with it at all, yet she plays with all her other toys. So i figured, for us this might work a bit better as she can move it around into any nooks and crannies and set up her own little world. I hope so any way. I am going to out the furniture, frame and evi dolls in a large , very shallow, wicker basket and it can sit on her toys shelf and she can pull it out when she wants it. Now I am looking for a little navy play silk with stars on it so she can drape it over the top if she wants to look like the sky!
