The Kidkraft Majestic Mansion is a sturdy, well-built dolls house that is guaranteed to leave a massive smile on your little one’s face.
Evie has now owned hers from for a whole year and she still enjoys playing with it as much as ever.
My biggest frustration is that buying alternative furniture has proven quite difficult and it’d be nice to be able to switch it up from time to time.
I can’t recommend this product enough.
About the Dolls House (The technical stuff)
The fully assembled dolls house comes to about four and a half feet tall. The exact measurements 132.1cm x 35.5 cm x 135.9cm – It’s huge!
To put it into perspective, Evie needs a step to be able to see into the baby doll’s attic room, which means she’ll be able to get plenty of use out of it over the next few years.
Because of its size, there’s easily space for more than one child to play with it side by side too.
The house comes with 34 pieces of well-crafted wooden furniture including a piano, grandfather clock, bed, bedside tables and more lots more. We regularly play ‘moving house’, a simple game that involves removing all of the furniture and putting it back in its new place somewhere else in the house.
There are eight rooms are spread across four floors and perhaps most impressive of all is the working life for the dolls to move between levels.
The house is designed for ‘12 inch dolls’, which is the standard Barbie or equivalent brand size.
Putting the KidKraft Majestic Mansion together
Although it took a little bit of time, assembling the dolls house was nice and straightforward.
There were numbered stickers on every separate piece and the instructions were nice and clear.
All-in, I’d say it took slightly more than an hour to put together, with the help of my brother – I’d recommend having somebody else with you whilst you do just to help you hold bits together.
The dolls house comes with wall fixings and I would strongly advise you to not waste any time in fixing it to the wall. Because the house is tall, Evie has tried on a few occasions to pull herself a little higher to see the attic, which of course means that she places all her weight at the top.
That terrifies me but is easily prevented.
The Kidkraft Mansion is surprisingly well-built.
I really like how the panels are already pre-covered with nice little prints, which clearly and easily signify what each room is surprised to be – Evie’s favourite has to be the living room for sure!
For me, what stands out on the Majestic Mansion is the great level of attention they’ve paid to the little details throughout the house.
The garage doors open and close nicely and can fit Evie’s Barbie car in it perfectly. The little pieces of wooden furniture look great; I particularly love the piano!

I bought the Kidkraft Majestic Mansion for Evie a year ago now and it’s been a mainstay of our playroom ever since.
Because the dolls house is so big, we can easily sit together and play and, unfortunately for my bank balance, we’ve gradually added to our Barbie collection to keep play fresh and exciting.
The lovely design and sturdy build quality mean that it makes for a lovely feature in the room and as a daddy, just gives me such a lovely feeling every time we go in there to play.
For me, parenting is all about creating memories for your kids. You never know quite what will stick and what will be forgotten.
That’s why I like to create as many special moments for her as Evie as possible.
Whether she remembers it or not as she grows up, I know that I’ll never forget the look on Evie’s face the moment she first saw the dollhouse.
It’s something that’ll stay with me for the rest of my life.
You can watch the moment she saw it for the first time below.
So all-in-all, the Kidkraft Majestic Mansion is a fantastic product that is well-priced, well-made and now…well-played with.
