I would not buy a child's house for a 14 year old. Why not set her a budget and let her choose?

Why not give her a DHE gift token, then she can buy the one she really wants!

This! That way she gets the doll house of her dreams. If she's anything like I was she would be mentally planning the rooms etc. long before she's even got it. So this would be nicer for her.

Hi I have to agree with the others here at 14 think an adult one would be far better as she will enjoy it more. Think if she had a childs one she would get tired of it very quickly.
Val and Dancer have excellent ideas give a her a voucher to chose herself. That way she will be really happy.

That is fine I was confused as I had read another comment from your daughter and she sounded a lot more mature than 14 so this one made me wonder.

I got my dolls house when I was 14, it was Montgomery hall. I think that 14 is a great age to move into adult houses, it keeps me out of mischief (although, i am a bit older now!)

14 is a great age to get an adult dolllhouse. I got my first adult doll house when I was about 8 or so. I'm 16 now. Also she is learning to take care of things better, so if you get her an adult dollhouse it will last a long time. She might even pass it on her daughter one day, if she still has it!

I agree with all the previous posts, your daughter is grown-up enough to decide on which house she would like and how to furnish it. The fact that she didn't have one when she was small probably makes her more likely to stick with the hobby till adulthood!

And remember, if her enthusiasm flags, she can also view it as an investment to be sold on to another interested enthusiast, and use the money for something else in a few years!
