Description: The dollhouse the set the standard for all other dollhouses! 17" x 13" x 15" tall (without the removable orange roof) bluish-gray, 3-story dollhouse has 5 rooms. This is one of a series of 3 houses made for older children to house regular dollhouse people and furniture (slightly larger than the scale of the Adventure People line - nothing like the Little People sets). The second version of this house (#280 Doll House with Lights) had battery operated lights. There were curtain rods for the windows on the ground floor and the second floor. The house has real wood floors, simulated carpet, and tile on the bathroom floor. Sliding plastic French-style doors, bay window, picture window, and a simulated slate patio are some of the many features that made this house so realistic and cherished by those who own it.
Accessories: This house actually came as a "model kit" that had over 25 pieces that had to be assembled before the fun could begin:
  • FPT1955 - Tan plastic rectangular dollhouse Foundation/Base with simulated wood plank flooring and simulated stone patio features. Overall size: 15-1/2" wide x 13" long x 2" tall. This base does NOT have provision for the retaining straps as do the #280/4300/4400 bases. Also, this base has a parts storage compartment where the #280/4400 bases have a battery compartment. Finally, the #250 base has a small round hole for the staircase anchor, whereas the early #280 base has a round "twist-lock" hole and the late #280-up bases have a rectangular slot.
  • FPT5064 - Brown plastic rectangular simulated tile kitchen floor that fits over the parts storage compartment on the foundation described above. Measures 10-1/2" long, 5-7/8" wide, 1/4" thick. This piece also fits the #4300 doll house. This does not fit the #280 or #4400 lighted doll houses because they require a small opening for the on-off switch.
  • FPT5065 - 1-piece wall unit that folds into three sections and has grey simulated siding. Measures 30" wide, 13-1/2" tall, 1/4" thick. This wall can also be used with #280, #4300, & #4400 dollhouses.
  • FPT5066 - Grey traingle-shaped wall extensions pieces that form the tops of the side walls; Left Hand & Right Hand are the same. Overall size: 7-1/2" wide x 6-1/2" tall x 1/4" thick. Note: can be used with the #280 early (1-piece) wall unit, but siding pattern is different.
