We bought this for our daughter. She has a handful of the Calico Critters already so, of course, they needed a home. It's a little hard to swallow the prices on these things, but the house was a pretty reasonable price. It seems to be sturdy and she has already been in her room for countless hours playing with it, so I'd call it a victory.
This is my honest, unbiased opinion. I was not reimbursed in any way to write this review.
