John Lewis Doll's House, Leckford House
Leckford Dolls House
The design is flawed, we had to have three before we got a faultless product. With first one of the doors fell off and the top section of the gable-end, which supports the roof was loose. In the case of the second one of the doors was glued shut and again the gable-end was loose. The gable-end is only glued to the main body with two glue joints.
The end should be one piece construction.

Good but not without fault
A good solid dolls house which is easy to put together. However, the doors or the front of the house do not shut properly. I would suggest putting magnets on them to keep them shut but John Lewis should really fix this issue in their design.

The doll's house was extremely well received by my grand daughter; it is a lovely product at a reasonable price.
However having read other reviews before we bought it, we elected to 'build' it before we gave it to her. Very glad we did - a) takes quite a time and children will get bored watching the labourers at work! b) one bolt was damaged and would not fit so required a change.
And this is where JL come into their own. I rang and explained the situation and they put another house aside for me (and held it until I rang to say I was happy with the one I had) and suggested that I brought the bolt into the shop. I went in (don't forget your allen key!), they allowed me to unscrew one from the display model and hey presto job done and one happy girl the next day.
So as ever JL deliver on customer service but it does seem that this product does not necessarily always meet their high quality standards.

Wonderful Xmas gift
Ideal purchase fora pre-schooler - well-designed, strong and sturdy with easy access and sufficent rooms for make-believe play. Also purchased all the accompanying sets of furniture - equally good for small hands. Already given hours of play and, with different furniture, should last well into primary school years - and come in for future generations!

Pretty, but room for improvement
We purchased this beautiful doll's house for our 3 year old daughter for Christmas. After reading the reviews we purchased the product online and had speedy delivery. Unfortunately the first doll's house had a few cracks, chips and faults inside such as the stairs/doors not lining up correct. After a quick phone call another one was sent out & we have mixed and matched up to make one from two houses. Our daughter will no doubt be absolutely delighted with it but I must admit I am still slightly disappointed as it is not 100% perfect and I would have expected perfection from John Lewis. Also to mention we have been advised the dolls to play with inside are out of stock until earliest January. Surely John Lewis would expect this to be a very popular choice for christmas and no stock to go inside?!

It is a Christmas gift for my grandaughter,so son-in-law put it all together for me and emailed the photo of the completed doll house she will see on Christmas morning.
