DIY Dollhouse kits from China


Recommended Posts

I bought a kit and have yet to build it. Everything on the box is in Chinese, there is not even the warning from California stating it contains harmful materials etc....

Who really knows if they have lead? Would you get an honest answer if you asked the manufacturer? 

If you order it,  don't put any pieces in your mouth , and wash your hands well after touching it.

If you're really  concerned about lead, go with a Greenleaf kit; no lead, unless you put it in there.

I have done numerous of the Chinese kits and have enjoyed them all!  Yes they can be fiddly but I love the fact that you have to make everything - it gives you a great starting base for when you're tackling bigger kits.  I make so many of my own minis because I prefer to.  Carrie - I haven't found it too much of an issue in the past with having only Chinese instructions.  Usually the pictures for each step are excellent and I find them more helpful than the words anyway!

No signs of lead poisoning?
