My DS is 6 years old and has requested a big house for his "guys" to live in (zomlings, star monsters, grossery gang etc). He doesn't really want much else in particular and he's had a hard time of things recently so I'd really like to get him what he wants for Christmas. I told him I'd see if I could find one to show Santa and he told me I don't need to look for anything because Santa can build any toy in the world!
Where the hell do I find a big house for little collectibles that isn't a normal dolls house?? Why can't he just want lego?? confused

Can’t you get a dolls house? Paint it the colours he likes?

Get a local person with a workshop to make one?

My 6 year old has a Sylvanian Families house - I think it’s Beechwood Hall? All her little collectibles live in it - she has star monsters, mini ponies, squashy things.

Are you crafty/a diy-er? You can make amazing stuff from old bookcases or cabinets. Old style lundby dollhouses can be easily customised too

Littlest Pet Shop do houses. Would one of them do?

traviata Mon 06-Nov-17 22:20:10

what do you think the house should look like?

would a standard dolls house not do? especially if you got a bare wood one and painted it in colours that match the "guys".

or how about an Ikea hack?

I should add I'm the least crafty person in Britaingrin, he wants it to be as tall as himself hmm and (due to school bullies angry) is a bit paranoid about anything that could possibly be seen as "babyish"

Has anyone who lives in one area but is under the council of a different postcode ever done jury service?

I’ve got DS this, I love it!!

Handmethegin Mon 06-Nov-17 22:26:14

Traviata - budget is fine but it's too pink (damn bullies again angry)

hesterton Mon 06-Nov-17 22:26:20

A junk shop bookcase with a few holes in the shelves and ladders attached? I bet you could knock something up.
