My daughter's third birthday is coming up, and we want to get her a dolls house. This looks ideal, except it's marked as 4+, whereas most toys are 3+. Is this product really unsuitable for three-year-olds?

I am thinking about getting this for my daughter who will be 3 years 4 months at Christmas and wondered if you ended up buying this for you daughter and if so were you happy with it for her?

I started buying Sylvanian things for my daughter for Christmas when she was 2 months shy of being 4. The reason they put 4+ is because there are so many small pieces for Sylvanians. The detail in their products is fantastic but obviously tiny! In one of the bedroom kits there is a tiny little pencil and ruler and the babies come with tiny pacifiers. These products are not suitable for small children who still put things in their mouths. I'm forever having to remove bits off the carpet so my baby doesn't swallow them! I'm trying to teach my daughter to look after her Sylvanian things and respect her property because she just throws them around. Older children will take more due care with their Sylvanian toys. For the time-being I'm just removing very small items and keeping them in a box until she can take better care of them and appreciate the little bits and just letting her play with the more chunky items like chairs, tables etc.

This house doesn't come with any small parts apart from the balcony fences which can be removed but I suppose there are some sharp corners etc. I think the house on it's own would be fine for a three year old.

It's only up to you if you think your child is responsible enough to look after all the little bits and if you have other younger children in your house who would be likely to eat them!
