While these are not the most glamorous, Kardashian type family around... these are, by far, the best dolls that I have found for my 4 yr olds new doll house. Why is it so hard to find good dolls for these things?! This is an every day, working class, American family. They are kinda crazy to look at, Grandpa and Dad could use a hairbrush... Mom literally has a baby stuck to her all the time. Brother looks like he's been electrocuted and sister has a crazed look in her wooden eye. They are easy to manipulate and could use some clothes from this decade, but... they look happy together.... Now that i'm typing this...They are MY FAMILY actually. Nice. Thanks for making a perfect replica of my family! It's no wonder my daughter can soo easily play house... This is Us!

Bought this doll family to use with the brand new wooden Ikea Flisat dollhouse. I was concerned about whether or not the scale would work with the dollhouse since they're not made to go together, but they work great! All the little details (clothing, hairstyles, movable arms and legs) are so realistic and cute. We're giving this to my daughter (assembled inside the dollhouse) for her 2nd birthday on Saturday and I can't wait to see her reaction! I'll try to update once she's had a chance to play around with it for a while.

My eldest worked on making her own dollhouse with her nonna this past year but they never got around to making or getting dolls. These dolls have that rugged handmade look without the work on my part, fit the dollhouse nicely, have great variety of family members and are just really cute. We also got the car so my daughter got these 7 plus the 4 that came in the car. We have a big family so it's wonderful to have a lot of dolls fill up her dollhouse. Overall very pleased!

I bought this doll family to add to a firehouse/police house (aka "boy" dollhouses) for my son for Christmas. After a year of use, these have stayed in good rotation. They are good quality, as most M&D products are. The heads are wooden and the bodies are bendable/posable. They are easier to bend than the rubber figures that came with the firehouse, which have wires in them but are too stiff to really pose. The clothes are simple but sewn well. The dolls do stand on their own... sometimes. For use in the dollhouse, however, they are mostly sitting or standing. Nothing has faded, ripped, or broken after a year of play, so I would definitely but the set again. The little baby in yellow is especially a hit around here and is always getting into trouble!

My daughter loves these dolls. They are simple, but that is what I like about them. I am giving them 4 stars instead of 5 because they do not quite fit in the Melissa and Doug dollhouse we have, meaning that the dolls can't "stand" in the house. It seems that the dolls should be able to fit into any of the dollhouses since the packaging doesn't specify which house they would fit better into.

The family looks super cute. We're ethnically "Euro-Asians" and personally, this family comes closest to looking like us (except the blonde girl). It's good quality and fits my 2.5 year old daughters hands nicely. The head, hands, and feet are wood construction and the rest consists of the body is a pliable metal covered with an interwoven thread. It's safe for small children to play with and bend on their own. I read another review that complained that the metal was showing though the thread after being played with, but I imagine that this is likely to happen if it's roughly handled and bent extraordinarily in a back-and-forth motion; it won't bend easily like playdough because there's some resistance. This set contains 7 characters, so there's a lot of play option! Enjoy :)

This is a cute and well made set of dolls. My 3 year old does get frustrated that she can’t always get them to sit on the dollhouse furniture as she would like for them to do. They do bend, but not to a complete sitting position, and are often too stiff to sit on furniture.

This is an adorable set of family dolls, however, I am taking away one star because of the lack of quality assurance with this product. The mommy's feet/legs were attached backwards and one of grandma's legs is approximately 1/4" shorter than the other. The poseable/bendy legs allowed me to twist the feet into a forward position and my 2 1/2 year old grand daughter won't mind that grandma's balance is a little "off" (probably a little too realistic!) so I am not going to return the set. FYI, I checked the packaging because of the assembly issues and was disappointed to see that they were made in China :(

I got these to go with a dollhouse I also purchased for my daughter who is soon to be 7. They are so cute and we love them! They actually look higher quality than the pictures and are well-packaged like other Melissa & Doug products. Highly recommend!

PS
Love Melissa & Doug products because of their sturdiness. These are perfect for my toddler and will work great when I give in to a doll house.
