I don’t usually post reviews on here, but recently I was invited to review something which I liked so much it actually changed my mind about reviewing products!
I was asked if I would review this cute little doll’s house. And I had a little girl in mind who might love it.
The Twinkle Tower is recommended for ages 3 and up, probably because it includes a few small parts that could be swallowed. We put the small parts to one side and Emily, 18 months, was just delighted with the rest of it.
Her face was a mixture of deep concentration
and pure delight
The princess and some furniture was included with the house. The princess spent a lot of her time in bed because this is something Emily clearly thinks a lot about. She enjoys putting toys in bed, like Mummy puts her in bed, although sometimes with slightly less predictable results. With a little help, the princess looked comfy…
But the princess was sometimes hiding under the bed
and sometimes looked like she’d maybe had a night out on the tiles and hadn’t quite made it into bed
She even managed to get into an upside-down bed. The sturdy little bed was forgiving and the pillow and mattress even stayed in place. Can’t say I’d recommend it for a good night’s sleep though.
The Twinkle Tower’s doors and windows are perfect for small hands to open and close as well as peer through to inspect the inhabitants.
But the chair
was a little small for Emily, which didn’t stop her trying to sit on it!
Everything is made of painted wood and surprisingly sturdily made (as you can probably tell from the above picture!). The furniture and little princess (plus some wooden pots, pans, cakes and cups – and the cutest little pink polkadot kettle) are all included in the price of the house – £30.99.
It’d make a perfect gift for a little girl’s second or third birthday – just be careful with the small parts if you’re giving it to children under three. Emily doesn’t really put things in her mouth any more but we thought it better to be safe than sorry and they’ve been put away until she’s a little bit older.
The sturdy furniture stacked quite nicely…
but even better - if you ever want to move house, the kitchen trolley is the perfect thing to put the cooker on and wheel it along…
It’s fair to say that Emily loves her Twinkle Tower. I’m so glad I agreed to review it! I think there’s hours of creative fun to be had here. The roof comes off to reveal some attic space, so there’s even room for extension! I think it’s a perfect first doll’s house for a young child.
