A List Of The Cheapest Dollhouse Kits – An Oversight.

Before writing this blog post, I have been asking around on Facebook groups what people consider to be the cheapest dollhouse kits on the market, and most of them agreed that they would need to be under about $50.

But, there are so many under $50,00, that I decided to go as far as under $40,00, to get an even tinier budget.

So for this article, I will be looking up dollhouse kits from around that price or less.

If you are, however, looking for the best DIY miniature kits on the market, then you can always check out this blog post here.

Is buying the cheapest dollhouse kits worth it though?


I will try to answer this question first.

As I asked myself this question: if these dollhouse kits are this cheap or affordable, can they still have good quality and wouldn’t I be buying a cat in a bag, frustrations included?

Well, I believe it depends on what you are looking for.

If you are looking for a large dollhouse kit, then obviously, you will not find those in this article.

And I would assume if you are looking for fancy kits in a certain theme, like Victorian or Tudor style ones, you would need to pay a price which will be a lot higher than $40,00 as well.

New Arrivals Building Kits

That being said: there sure are a lot of cheap dollhouse kits out there on the market that you can enjoy, just realize that they won’t be very expanded, large, or luxurious, yet they CAN have quality!

Let’s just dive straight into all the cheapest dollhouse kits that I found out there!

The most affordable dollhouse kits, per brand!


I had to think about how I would organize all of the kits, so I decided to split them up into all the different brands.

1. The cheapest dollhouse kits from Robotime.


As you might know by now, I am quite fond of Robotime/Rolife. So let’s give it a go and try to find the most affordable ones. (under $40,00), including a short review)

I am sure that this list of the cheapest dollhouse kits from Robotime could be expanded, but I tend to find that the remaining ones are very tiny, so I decided to keep those for another article 😉

2. The cheapest dollhouse kits from Cutebee


Cutebee is a little bit different than Robotime, so I wanted to list this brand separately.

Usually, you can kind off see the difference between these two brands, as both have a particular design and are recognizable.

Although sometimes it gets confusing on which one is which because when you type in “Cutebee” in Google, lots of other brands of DIY kits still show up.

But I think that I can make the distinction between the brands by now (I hope 😉 )

I have found a few kits under $40,00, let’s go!

  • 1. Cake Diary shop





BrandCutebee
ScaleThis is more like 1:22, although
they claim it is 1:24
Pro’s– should include a music box and
dustcover
– easy to assemble
– great value for money
Contra’s– unclear instructions
– no good tools included
Our Ratings4,5/5
Hours to Makeup to 15 hours



  • 2. Japanese Garden House



BrandCutebee
ScaleMore like a 1:22 scale
Pro’s– the advantage of other brands then Robotime
is that there are a lot more Asian style dollhouse
kits, and I love this design!
– seeing the size of this kit with the multiple rooms,
I say this is very affordable!
– no need to paint anything or no frustrating
wirework
Contra’s– no English instructions or poor instructions
Our Ratings4,5/5
Hours to Makeit says 4 to 8 hours, but my guess is that this
would take a lot more time!



  • 3. Sweet talk.



BrandCutebee
Scale1: 22
Pro’s– a very small kit, quickly made
– lovely designed cakes and sweets
– very affordable DIY mini kit
Contra’s– no crafting tools included
– as always, labeling and instructions
could be better
Our Ratings4,5/5
Hours to Makeabout 6 hours seems sufficient



  • 4. Blue Time



BrandCutebee
Scale1: 22
Pro’s– challenging but not hard to do
– doesn’t include pieces that are hard
to assemble, like wirework
– not complicated
Contra’s– no good tools or glue included

BrandCutebee
Scale1: 22
Pro’s– small and quickly made kit

Our Ratings4/5
Hours to Make8-10 hours would be sufficient



  • 6. Wait for The Time



BrandCutebee
Scale1: 22
Pro’s– the manual should be in English
– a pretty expanded project for a very
fair price
Contra’s– Beware of the price: it is higher on the
website from Cutebee then on Amazon
– Not all pieces fit together perfectly,
so you have to be able to adjust to a
certain situation

Hours to Makeminimum 15 hours, more like 30

Furthermore on this list, there are not that many other brands to find that are as affordable under the amount of $40,00.

  1. Oh wow, I didn’t know there were so many dollhouse kits. With the abundance of reasonably priced dollhouse kits available on today’s market, you may not be able to experience a sprawling mansion or extravagance in design. Nonetheless, these simplistic sets can still offer excellent craftsmanship and quality! It was nice to see a great overview of the cheapest dollhouse kits.

  2. I used to wonder what’s with tiny dollhouses that got my youngest sister hooked into collecting as many as she could. But when I saw her collection, they were just so adorable! Thus, I want to buy her one for her upcoming birthday.

    I am so glad I came across your post on the cheapest dollhouses. How can something so pretty be so affordable? ☺ Under $50 is already cheap but when I checked out these dollhouses one by one, there are those that cost as low as $15.00 on Amazon because they are on SALE.

    However, I also didn’t know that it generally takes a long time to put them together. Now I know why my sister said that she usually completes setting up one dollhouse in about a week. That is because she doesn’t do it in one sitting. 

    Anyway, thank you for putting this post together.

    • Hi Alice!

      You are very welcome and I wish you and your younger sister a lot of crafting fun when assembling these 😉

      Kind regards,
