Opinions needed - 4yo DD - Asda Dolls House or Sylvanian Families??

In a bit of a dilemma about DM's present for DD.

I had suggested the Asda wooden's dolls house, DD hasn't asked for it as such but likes Happyland, playmobil and dolls/figures of all sizes so figured it would go down well.

She is now asking for Sylvanian families having seen TV adverts and I don't know whether to suggest returning the wooden house and starting a sylvanian family collection or just sticking with the dolls house.

Another option would be looking for a reduced SF family for her to play with in the dolls house - it's all too confusing.

Sylvanians are great but the clothes are very fiddly to get on & off. Dd is nearly 7 and can still get frustrated with the clothes but loves them. She never played with her doll house but plays loads with the Sylvanian house.

thanks Curlygirl, am leaning towards SF a bit but that may because I find them cute!!

I'd try to find a reduced set to play with in the dolls house!

Sylvanian Families are very expensive for what they are.

DD still plays with her sylvanians and she's 13.

My dd has a normal dolls house for her sylvanians. Works well. She has a mixture of sylvanian and civilian furniture.

I would stick to the dolls house, you can always use it with sylvanians as she gets older. We bought sylvanians for dd when she was 4.5 and she found them a bit fiddly and hardly played with them, she has only just become really interested at the age of 8 and has asked for the tree school.

We have a big old dolls house we got handed down and DD uses her Sylvanian families in it.I was able to paper and floor the dolls house and she loves adding to it.
I got the Sylvanian families on gumtree so not they weren't v dear either.
