The best dollhouses offer a variety of different rooms, from kitchens with tiny appliances to bedrooms with little closets for doll clothes. While all dollhouses are a little delicate in a way, picking a sturdy and durable option is essential, especially for a house full of younger kids.
However, well-made and beautiful dollhouses can be pricey. Wooden dollhouses full of every detail imaginable are generally going to cost more (and they’re also a little more high-maintenance), while plastic dollhouses will typically be less. If you want to splurge, pick a dollhouse that you’ll keep in the family. If you think your child is going to test their limits as much as possible, opt for something more budget-friendly — there are still great options out there. Here are our picks for the best dollhouses to buy this holiday season for your little one, from more affordable to more expensive.

1. Fsolis DIY Dollhouse
This 3D Wooden Miniature Dollhouse ($20.99, Amazon) is by far the cheapest option I found at just about $20. It’s smaller than many other options, making it ideal for tighter spaces. While the Fsolis DIY Dollhouse may be inexpensive, there’s no shortage of details. You’ll find adorable touches like LED lights, plants, and decor that feels strangely realistic.

2. Toy Life Pink Dollhouse
The Toy Life Pink Dollhouse ($39.90, Amazon) is ideal for younger toddlers ages three and up. With four rooms, two floors, balconies, and a yard, this one has plenty of fun features for a really low price (under $50 can’t be beaten). It comes with all the necessary furniture and some cute extras, like a fence and a little bridge to connect the top two floors.
3. Fisher-Price Little People Play House
If your kids love playing with Little People, then this Fisher-Price Little People Play House ($39.99, Amazon) is more than worth the affordable price. Aside from the little house, it comes with three figures and additional play pieces. I love that this one has songs, sounds, and phrases throughout it — it’s great for toddlers as young as one year. And the outdoor swing is so cute.
4. Tomleon Dollhouse with Princesses
For a bigger option, the Tomleon Dollhouse ($41.99, Amazon) is an excellent deal. It’s less than $45, and the size is comparable to more expensive options. There are two stories, four rooms, a balcony, and a garden, and it comes with tons of little furniture and accessory pieces to play with. It also comes with two princesses, some unicorns, and a little dog, so everything they need to play is right here.
5. Melissa & Doug Fold and Go Wooden Dollhouse
Kids love to bring their favorite toys everywhere, but if their favorite toy is a dollhouse, that can be impossible. The Melissa & Doug Fold and Go Wooden Dollhouse ($60.39, Amazon) is an exception to that. This cute wooden dollhouse easily folds up so that it can be moved from room to room (or place to place). It comes with two play figures and 11 pieces of furniture and is definitely the best deal I found for a wooden house.

6. Giant Bean Wooden Dollhouse
This Giant Bean Wooden Dollhouse ($78.90, Amazon) is comparable to much more expensive designs and still comes in at under $100. This one is just over two feet tall and comes with so many thoughtful details: a doorbell, lights, an elevator, and a balcony. Three dolls are also included.
7. Milliard Doll House
Another item that’s comparable to larger, more expensive items is the Milliard Doll House ($84.99, Amazon). With over 1,100 positive reviews, this is definitely one to snatch up while it’s available. It’s under $100 and has three stories and six rooms, a balcony, the cutest details, and 20 intricately designed furniture pieces.
8. Robotime Wooden Doll House
The Robotime Wooden Doll House ($83.99, Amazon) is only a few dollars more than the Milliard or the Giant Bean dollhouses and offers a beautiful design and lots of detail, making it yet another great option for the low price point. This one has five rooms, a balcony, three stories, and 28 pieces of furniture to play with.
9. Melissa & Doug Hi-Rise Wooden Dollhouse
If you have two kids who are going to be playing with the dollhouse, this Melissa & Doug Hi-Rise Wooden Dollhouse ($88.99, Amazon) is a great pick. The open sides make it easy for two or more kids to play with it at one time and offer more flexibility all around. It comes with three play figures and 15 pieces of furniture. While it’s a little bit more than some other options, it’s still less than $100, beautifully designed, and has excellent reviews. If you want something less expensive and sturdy, this is it.
10. Rainbow High House
The fully furnished Rainbow High House ($99.97, Amazon) was created for the Rainbow High dolls but can really be used with any dolls or figures. Three stories and six rooms offer plenty of space, and it comes with over 50 accessories. This one has a lot of impressive details that you would find in much more expensive dollhouses. These include a working shower and sink that sprays water, a bubbling hot tub, and a working elevator.

11. KidKraft Shimmer Mansion Wooden Dollhouse
KidKraft makes popular wooden dollhouses that can get up there in price, but the KidKraft Shimmer Mansion ($97.01, Amazon) is one of the least expensive I found. It’s over five feet tall with four levels and eight different rooms and comes with realistic details like working lights and a flushing toilet. There’s also an outdoor balcony and garage. If you’re set on a KidKraft dollhouse but don’t want to spend too much, this is a great price point at under $150.
12. Lil’ Jumbl Kids Wooden Dollhouse
The Lil’ Jumbl Kids Wooden Dollhouse ($159.99, Amazon) is over four feet tall and offers plenty for kids to play with: three stories, multiple rooms, a balcony, and an elevator, among other things. While this is a great price for a dollhouse that reaches four feet tall, it’s not quite as low as some other options that are smaller but come with more accessories or rooms.
13. Melissa & Doug Multi-Level Dollhouse
While the Melissa & Doug Multi-Level Dollhouse ($189.99, Melissa & Doug) is more costly, it’s also a great quality dollhouse made of sturdy wood. There are three levels, five rooms, and 19 pieces of wooden furniture to play with. Movable staircases and working doors are fun details. For those who want something large that’s all wood, this is a good price.
14. KidKraft Celeste Mansion Dollhouse
The KidKraft Celeste Mansion Dollhouse ($189.99, KidKraft) is currently on sale and at that price is arguably an even better deal than the Melissa & Doug Multi-Level Dollhouse. It’s huge, with four floors, and lots of rooms. There’s a patio area with working lights, a greenhouse, a closet to store clothes, and cute details like a little telescope. For the size and detail, this price is excellent.
15. Small Foot Iconic Doll House
Beautifully designed with plenty of space, the Small Foot Iconic Doll House ($199.99, Maisonette) is a great gift. It has a modern design to it, with five rooms and balconies. A functional staircase and other details like opening windows, nightstands with drawers, and a real bell make this fun, and it comes with 12 pieces of furniture. For a more modern look, the $200 price point is pretty good.

16. KidKraft Majestic Mansion
Looking for something bigger? The KidKraft Majestic Mansion ($215.99, Amazon) is really large, with four stories and eight rooms. The elevator really goes up and down, and the garage doors open. It’s made of all wood and has some really cool painted details. It comes with plenty of accessories too.
17. Barbie Dreamhouse Dollhouse
Every Barbie doll deserves its own Dreamhouse. The Barbie Dreamhouse Dollhouse ($199.99, Amazon) comes with a lot for the price. There are three stories, eight rooms, and a pool with a slide that can be filled with water. I personally love the wheelchair accessibility ramp it has as well as the elevator. There are other fun details like a carport and lights and sounds (if you put a frying pan on the stove and press the button, it sizzles!). Because there’s a lot going on here for just around $200, I consider this one of the best dollhouses to buy this holiday season.
18. Little Tikes Real Wood Stack ‘n Style Dollhouse
The coolest thing about the Little Tikes Real Wood Stack ‘n Style Dollhouse ($219.99, Amazon) that I think makes the higher price worth it is how adjustable it is. You can move the levels around to create either a 1-story, 2-story, or 3-story dollhouse. This is great for space saving and storage. The artwork is really detailed, there are six fun rooms, and it’s all made of real wood.
19. KidKraft Country Estate Dollhouse
Another beautiful option, the KidKraft Country Estate Dollhouse ($213.99, KidKraft) is packed with fun details and is easily big enough for two kids to play. There are 10 rooms, a porch, four levels, and it’s over four feet tall. Interactive features, like opening and closing garage doors, are fun to play with, and it comes with 31 accessories, which is more than a lot of other dollhouse options.
20. Tenderleaf Toys Foxtail Villa Dollhouse
The Tenderleaf Toys Foxtail Villa Dollhouse ($244.99, Bloomingdale’s) is so pretty to look at and so fun to play with. What I love the most about this one is that there’s a panel that shuts so that the entire dollhouse is enclosed when not in use. This is great for storage and just avoiding a mess in general. It comes with some accessories and is just really beautifully designed.

21. Pottery Barn Kids Barrington Dollhouse
If you want a classic dollhouse, opt for the Pottery Barn Kids Barrington Dollhouse ($399, Pottery Barn Kids). This is big, with two floors and 12 rooms. I love all of the windows and the detail, especially on the front of the house. It also hinges shut, which is so convenient. However, keep in mind that even for the higher price point, this one doesn’t come with any furniture or accessories. You’re really paying for the look here.
22. American Girl x KidKraft Luxury Dollhouse
Let’s just say it: The American Girl x KidKraft Luxury Dollhouse ($598, American Girl) is not cheap. It is, however, quite large, with space for the 18-inch American Girl dolls. The tri-level layout stands at 4.5 feet tall and is made of sturdy wood. It offers 360-degree play so that more than one kid can easily play with it, and it has so many fun details, like a hot tub and a shower that goes on and changes color. However, watch for American Girl Black Friday sales to see if this one gets heavily discounted.
