I bought a kinderkram dollhouse as 'seconds' (I posted about it here) and when it came a few weeks ago it was majorly broken. The roof and sides are fine but the floors are broken off and and a couple of the side are missing or have glue spots from bad repairs. The stairs and door part is there. The company that sold it doesn't want it back. We used the refund from it to buy an elves and angels dollhouse so we don't need another dollhouse. The only thing I can think of to do with this one is to cut it off in the middle somehow and turn it into an open barn/stable for our osthhimer figures. I don't own any tools other than a drill, hammer, and screwdrivers So I'm guessing I'll have to buy a jigsaw. Is there anything else it could be used for, it seems like a waste to throw it away. 

 

This is the dollhouse but ours is in pieces:

Can you glue it back together? I got a similar item that arrived with the floors not in place and some Gorilla Glue did the trick! It's crazy strong and expands to fill gaps/ cracks. Then a little sanding and voila! 

Can you post pics of the state it is in now?

p.s. Can you post the company so that nobody else here heads down that path? Is that kosher to do here?

I agree w/ this, post pix & try Gorilla Glue.  I'm tempted to offer to take it off your hands :)

We already bought and put together the new elves and angles anna's dollhouse for Christmas while waiting for the company that sold this one to decide if they wanted it back. I was thinking of trying to make it into a barn or something because we already have the other dollhouse. I've used gorilla glue before - I just might try that because the kinderkram dollhouse looks nicer than the pine e&a one. The pine arrived dinged and I know it will just get worse with time. I'll try to post a picture but I'm not sure where my memory card reader is - I wonder if I can take one with my iphone and somehow have it show up here?
