D.I.Y. Dollhouse Review

D.I.Y. Dollhouse: Build and Decorate a Toy House Using Everyday Materials Review & Giveaway

When I was young I always wanted a dollhouse. I just did not want a dollhouse, I wanted to MAKE a dollhouse. At the time I had no idea the time, effort or wood cutting involved, and my dream dollhouse never got built.

I was always thinking that there was a simpler way than the cutting, gluing and attaching that was involved. Flash forward many years later and I have finally discovered that easier way. The D.I.Y. Dollhouse: Build and Decorate a Toy House Using Everyday Materials by Alexia Henrion is the book I never knew I really wanted.

I received a copy of D.I.Y. Dollhouse: Build and Decorate a Toy House Using Everyday Materials by Alexia Henrion.

Let me just say that if you or your child want to build your own dollhouse with materials you have to get a copy of D.I.Y. Dollhouse by Alexia Henrion. This book is an illustrated guide for anyone from aspiring architects, designers, builders, and all in between.

The book is a completed D.I.Y. guide to teach you to build an eco-friendly dollhouse, using items that are around the house.

Each item you build has a list of materials needed, tools needed and instructions in photography and explanation.

Dollhouse: Build and Decorate a Toy House Using Everyday Materials by Alexia Henrion uses the above materials and creates items every house needs such as sofa, buckets,mops, bunk beds, chairs as well as many other household items. The end result is a functional and up-cycled dollhouse that you and your kids will be proud of creating.

    “What did you want to build/create/invent when you were young?” I wanted to build a secret clubhouse where I would be surrounded by expensive audio equipment that I would somehow be able to afford despite being 11 years old.

    I wanted to invent DVR! I always told my gramma and mom how awesome it would be to be able to rewind or pause tv like we could on the VCR

    I wanted to build a castle. My grandmother made a doll house out of cardboard boxes and made furniture out of household items.

    I wanted a tree house which my brother and I did build with the help of neighborhood friends. It was in the woods and so much fun! Thanks for the super giveaway opportunity.

    When I was young, I used to use my Dad’s Super-8 movie camera to make stop-motion films with my action figures, so I was always creating action figure-size sets out of cardboard boxes, paper towel tubes, packing styrofoam, model parts, and anything I could find around the house or outside. It was a lot of fun. Thank you for the chance to win.

    A friend of mine had a huge, gorgeous, handmade dollhouse with working water, electricity, etc. I always wanted just a basic one!! I have boys but if I ever have a granddaughter, she will have a dollhouse!
