Oh, big deal. A dollhouse the size of a bookshelf. I was hoping for garden shed sized item.

That little girl must be thrilled to death with it. Nice.

Yeah, for that price, it's pretty amazing. I wonder how many parents went on line to grab one after they saw the story? It's about the size of a large bookcase, so why not, if you have the room?

umm it looks pretty large in the website photo.

That's a hell of a lot better than my shoebox bed and improvised Lincoln Log home.  :)
