2-in-1 Dolls House and Kitchen Playset £44.99 @ Argos
EDIT 09/11/11 Price dropped to £44.99 now!
At first glance this might look like a regular play kitchen, pretty and pink but nothing special... but look again! This is a really clever toy as it's a kitchen on one side and a doll's house on the other! Even better is that the Chad Valley 2-in-1 Dolls House and Kitchen Playset has £10 off, making it £49.99. I think we would struggle to find these toys separately for under £50!
The kitchen features opening doors on the cupboard and oven, plus click and turn dials for the cooker, and a tap and sink. The accessories do not come with the kitchen but you could always add a cheap set like this Chad Valley one*.
The dolls house side is suitable for doll up to 15cm high, so that's the smaller ones not big Barbie dolls. The house has three stories decorated as a Vets, a Beauty Parlour, and a Studio Flat on the top floor. That's a little more imaginative than your average doll's house.
Although the price is £49.99 you could also get another £5 off that by talking in an old unwanted toy for the Barnados Toy Exchange, and using the £5 off Toys voucher that you get from that! Or you could add something small to take your purchase over £50 and then you get a £5 Gift Voucher back.
You can use the free reserve and collect service from Argos stores, or home delivery will add an extra £3.95 to your order, and stock seems very widely available.
