Getting started in the doll house hobby or choosing a dolls house for a loved one can be a very tricky business. There are so many dolls houses to choose from and you will have so many questions when you first start out that it is really hard to know where to start.

If you are like most collectors you will be sitting there with a hundred questions you need answered and not really knowing where to turn.

  • How do you know if the dollhouse you have chosen for your three year old is suitable for a child and will stand up to constant play.
  • Maybe you want a dolls house for yourself but have no idea what to choose.
  • Should you go for a dolls house kit and build, light and decorate it yourself or is it easier to go for a house that is fully built, painted and decorated.
  • Do you want to build a house from scratch but don't know where to find plans or how to start designing one yourself.
  • What scale are dolls houses and the furniture that go in them anyway?
  • How do you fit electric lighting and is this something you can do or will you have to get a professional to do it?
  • How do you decorate a doll house? Can you buy wall paper and flooring?
  • What about dolls and furniture, how do I know a piece of furniture will fit.
