New KidKraft Home
As you all know, Roberta lives in the one KidKraft home that I own. I've been thinking about getting one for Dasia. So, a couple days ago I did extensive research on all the KidKraft homes. I charted about 23 of the dollhouses and compared prices from four different online stores. Then I started crossing off houses that I would never buy, no matter what. That helped out quite a bit, because then I wasn't tempted when I saw it at an awesome price. Then I circled all the houses I would buy regardless of price. From there I started thinking strictly of Dasia and her husband. If the bedroom was too pink, I thought twice. I was also looking for a decent size living room, like Roberta has, and a decent sized kitchen. By the end of the exercise, I selected a house. I slept on my decision before making my purchase today.
Below are a few houses I considered, the one I finally purchased, and a new house coming out in August, 2015.
This is the My Dreamy house. It was a serious contender. Even looking at the picture now, I still like it for Dasia. I loved the living room, the working front door, and the two porches. The bedroom was a little too pink for Mr. Reed.
Another contender was the Sweet Savannah.
I loved the porch on the right side, but I didn't like the feel of the kitchen.
This is the Pink Paradise House. I loved the living room and the bathroom, but that bedroom was too much.
This is the Luxury dollhouse. It was not on the list for Dasia, but it is another one I am considering adding in the future. The price is really good, and I like the modern feel.
So this is the My Dream Mansion and it is the house I purchased. I immediately thought about the I Love Lucy show when I saw the two beds. Don't worry, Dasia and her husband will get a new bed. I like the size of the bedroom, and it's not too pink. I will be able to do a lot with that living room. I'm considering not adding those pink stairs, just so they will have even more room. The kitchen is a decent size, and I will be able to extend the first floor out to give her a little more room.
This is the cute bathroom. Love the colors.
During my research, I ran across a new house that is due out next month. It is called the Country Estate and it is quite impressive.
Four floors of glorious play. It's a nice house for a single mom with a couple of kids. They made the bedroom too small for a couple.
Love, love, love this porch next to the kitchen.
This top floor office could also act as a little kids room.
It has a garage.
A look inside the garage.
The bathroom is a really nice size.
So that ends my Dasia home search. Hopefully the construction team will get it built as soon as it arrives, so I can start doing some Dasia stories.
