Are you In need Of Good Christmas Ideas? – Why Not Buy A Miniature Christmas Kit ?

Are you looking for good Christmas ideas already? Then maybe you could look out for Christmas-related miniature kits!

Let’s have another look at my favorite site: Etsy and I will make 5 reviews.

Shop number 1. DollHousePlus

Makes

Doesn’t seem to make anything himself, but sells well-know dollhouse kits, like from Robotime and from Hongda.

Has: Christmas dollhouses, one-floor dollhouses, two-floor dollhouses, 1 three-floor dollhouse, 1 bedroom, theatre boxes, and rotating music boxes.

Some more info :

So he doesn’t craft anything handmade, but I did want to mention this shop because it has some Christmas related miniature kits that I didn’t see anywhere else yet.

Like the one in the picture: a DIY Miniature Dollhouse Christmas Kit.

Place(s) To Buy: Etsy

Price : 18,80$

Overall Rank: starson 559 sales

The Good And The Bad :

The good:

  • well packaged
  • fast delivery
  • these kits are well established and well known, so you can always find someone to help you with these on Facebook groups for example.

The bad:

  • these are not handmade like usual for Etsy and thus not unique

My Final Opinion :

I am giving this shop 4 stars, simply because I expect to see handmade stuff on Etsy, not mass production things. But it does have a few Christmas kits that I like!

Shop number 2. StrictlyBusinessBaby

Makes:

 beaded bracelets

Good Christmas Ideas

-Vintage Style Paper Doll Collectible Books

– and sells miniature kits

Some more info:

So again, this shop doesn’t actually màke miniature kits but does make other handcrafted things. And yes again, I saw a nice Christmas miniature kit that I haven’t seen elsewhere 😉

Place(s) To Buy: Etsy

Price: 49,99$

Overall Rank: on 139 sales

The Good And The Bad :

The good:

  • Returns and exchanges accepted
  • the dustcover is included

The bad:

  • it looks like the seller is being dishonest with the miniature kits/sending the wrong ones, this is why she only gets 3 and a half stars, which I rarely see on Etsy. People seem to be more positive about her handmade bracelets. So if you like those, I guess you could give it a try!
  • glue and batteries are not included in this kit
  • the price seems too high for what it is

My Final Opinion :

I would look elsewhere online for this kit honestly because this seller doesn’t seem trustworthy according to the reviews. The bracelets she sells though get a general 5 stars.

  • A very expanded kit for lots of fun family time!
  • shipping cost is free (for the US)

My Final Opinion :

I absolutely LOVE the idea behind this Christmas-elf-kit! I can just imagine that your kid never forgets to check out the Elf every single day before Christmas! Lots of fun guaranteed! Neither can I find any negative reviews at all, I just wish they would ship abroad haha! 5 stars for sure 😉

Place(s) To Buy: Etsy

Price: 15,00 for 1 kit

Overall Rank:3454 on sales

The Good And The Bad :

The good:

  • You can ask for a custom order
  • buyers are raving over this shop. This means that in the last 7 days, people have been giving nothing but 5 stars
  • 5 stars for 3454 sales is a very good score on Etsy
  • pretty cheap for the quality product that you buy
  • handmade

The bad:

I cannot find any downsides.

My Final Opinion :

When you decorate your house with little Christmas houses, you might have thought once in a while: ‘well, maybe I can do a better job myself’.

Now you can do exactly that, buy buying these little house kits, that you can paint and decorate yourself to your own style and liking.

Being a crafter and loving it, it is a nice thought to know that I will have unique items and not some plastic stuff that everyone can buy and just put it on your cupboard. I would buy it!

Shop number 5. Miniaturesandcraft

The list is kind of endless of what she makes, but let’s give it a go:

Place(s) To Buy: Etsy

Price : 47,14$

Overall Rank: on 2675 sales

The Good And The Bad :

The good:

  • the kit is easily put together
  • exchanges excepted
  • good quality

The bad:

  • the seller seems to have bad communication skills
  • some packages arrive very late or never, so be careful

My Final Opinion :

4 and a half stars on that many sales isn’t bad at all, it’s just that I did see a few reviews claiming that the package from his shop arrived very late. Not sure if that is because he lives in the UK maybe and most are sent to the US? That could explain the delay. The items look very nice though, would dare to buy!

 

Final Conclusion.

If you are looking for good Christmas ideas, then maybe my article can help you with that, I definitely hope so!

  1. Its been a while since my daughter has been all over me for me to get her a miniature house and I have been really happy to see that you have suggested this as a Christmas present. I would like to delay for a while a get her one when Xmas is near and I know she would really appreciate the gift so much.
