Dollhouses can provide children with many hours of enjoyment. They love creating different scenes and acting out conversations and scenarios with their dolls. One aspect of fun for a child is rearranging the furniture within the dollhouse to suit their own taste.
Children love to change the furniture and accessories to suit whichever game they are playing or scenario they are trying to create. While it is possible to choose from a wide range of dollhouses with furniture included, there are others where you must buy the dollhouse furniture separately.
Even if your chosen dollhouse comes with furniture, you may wish to buy additional pieces or accessories to allow your child to further customize the dollhouse to their own tastes or add more play options.
Fortunately, there is some fantastic dollhouse furniture available in a variety of sizes and materials. There are even dollhouse furniture kits if you prefer to make your own.
Barbie Dollhouse Furniture & Accessories
In most cases, Barbie houses come with furniture. However, there are some fantastic Barbie house furniture sets available so a child can personalize their dollhouse. Most of the Barbie furniture is plastic and either Barbie pink or complementary pastel shades.
The furniture is usually sold in room-specific sets rather than individual items of furniture. For example, there is a nursery set available for children that want to swap the basic bedroom furniture for items you would typically find in a nursery.
The majority of the Barbie dollhouse furniture is suitable for any Barbie house or Barbie Dreamhouse as both the furniture and the houses are designed with the size of Barbie dolls in mind.
However, it is always worth checking the product specifications before buying, especially if you are buying an item of furniture that is not sold by the Barbie brand and simply states that the furniture is for Barbie-sized dolls.
In addition to the official Barbie furniture, there is plenty of Barbie-sized dollhouse furniture for sale that is suitable for dolls of 11 ½ -12 inches.
These are sometimes a good option if you are looking for cheap dollhouse furniture or if your child wants to accessorize their Barbie dollhouse in furniture in colors other than Barbie pink. There are items of furniture and full room sets available for every room in any model of Barbie Dreamhouse.

KidKraft Dollhouse Furniture & Accessories
If you prefer wooden dollhouse furniture, then KidKraft dollhouse furniture is probably a good choice. They have a pretty range of wooden dollhouse furniture that includes both furniture sets and individual pieces of furniture.
Each piece of furniture is painted white with touches of pink. For example, the Tiffany Bow Doll Cradle is white with a pink bow design on the side and white and pink bedding. Similarly, the Lil’ Doll Bunk Bed is white with a carved design at each end of the bed and pink and white floral-patterned bedding.
KidKraft dollhouse furniture and accessories is far from the cheapest option. However, you are paying for the quality of the pieces. These are not basic furniture sets that are sold by many of their competitors as they are beautifully designed and there is attention to detail. They can be purchased in smaller pieces if you are after dollhouse replacement furniture.
The Lil’ Doll Table and Chair Set has curved table legs and the chairs have scallop detailing and a carved design in the back of the chair.
The one downside to the KidKraft dollhouse furniture is that there is not an extensive range of items to choose between in comparison to some of their competitors. Some parents would view this as a positive, though, as it means there are fewer pieces to collect.
