I HAVE SPENT A COUPLE OF YEARS BUYING LITTLE TIKES DOLLS HOUSE FURNITURE FOR MY DAUGHTERS HOUSE AND I HAVE NOTICED THAT A FEW SELLERS BUY ITEMS VERY CHEAP AND THEN SELL THEM ON AS BUY-IT-NOW FOR WAY OVER THEIR VALUE.  WHILST I DO NOT HAVE A PROBLEM WITH ANY E-BAYER TRYING TO MAKE MONEY (IT IS SOMETHING WE ARE ALL TRYING TO DO!!) I DO THINK THAT PEOPLE SHOULD TRY BIDDING FOR SIMILAR ITEMS FIRST OR LOOKING AT COMPLETED LISTINGS TO SEE HOW MUCH THEY ARE GOING FOR AT THE TIME (MOST OF THE TIME IT IS A LOT CHEAPER THAN THE BUY-IT-NOW).  IN MY EXPERIENCE, LITTLE TIKES DOLLS HOUSE FURNITURE GOES FOR A LOT MORE NEAR CHRISTMAS - ESPECIALLY TOWARDS THE END OF NOVEMBER - THAN ANY OTHER TIME OF THE YEAR, SO MAYBE HOLD OFF BUYING UNTIL JANUARY IF IT IS NOT FOR A CHRISTMAS PRESENT.

AGAIN, THIS IS NOT A PERSONAL ATTACK ON CERTAIN SELLERS, JUST A HELPFUL GUIDE TO TRY AND SAVE YOU A LITTLE MONEY.

ON A LIGHTER NOTE, YOU CANNOT GO WRONG WITH THESE ITEMS, THEY ARE VERY WELL MADE AND WILL LAST FOR EVER.  AS MANY OF THESE ARE NOT MADE ANYMORE, THEY ARE A GREAT COLLECTORS ITEM THAT CAN ONLY INCREASE IN VALUE AS THE YEARS GO BY.

THE ITEMS I HAVE NOTICED GET MORE BIDS ARE:

WHEELCHAIR AND RAMP, BLUE SOFA, CHAIR, T.V AND COFFEE TABLE, STABLE, HORSES AND RIDERS, GRANDMA AND GRANDAD, ETHNIC FAMILY, HOOVER, NURSERY FURNITURE SETS, BEDS WITH ORIGINAL MATTRESSES AND COVERS, AND OTHER FULL ROOM SETS. 

THE ITEMS THAT DON'T SELL SO EASILY ARE THE ACTUAL DOLLS HOUSE WITH THE BLUE OR PURPLE ROOF, I BOUGHT MY DAUGHTERS FOR £5 LAST YEAR AND I HAVE NOTICED THAT MANY HAVE NOT SOLD THIS YEAR.  THE PARTY KITCHEN IS ANOTHER ITEM THAT IS NOT SELLING TOO WELL AT THE MOMENT.

I HAVE BOUGHT MY DAUGHTER THE GRAND MANSION THIS YEAR (THREE FLOORS AND A LOT LARGER THAN THE USUAL DOLLS HOUSE - THE PHOTO'S NEVER REALLY DO JUSTICE TO HOW BIG THIS HOUSE ACTUALLY IS!! - THEY ARE A LOT LESS COMMON AND TEND TO SELL FOR A LOT MORE MONEY, ONE RECENTLY WENT FOR OVER £100 WITH FURINTURE.

LASTLY, DO NOT JUST SEARCH IN LITTLE TIKES DOLLS HOUSE, SEARCH IN THE FOLLOWING AS OFTEN THEY HAVE LESS BIDS AS THEY ARE NOT SEEN ENOUGH:

LITTLE TIKES

LITTLE TYKES

FISHER PRICE LOVING FAMILY ( THESE ITEMS ARE SLIGHTLY SMALLER BUT ARE STILL GREAT WITH THE DOLLS HOUSE AND I HAVE BOUGHT THESE FOR MY DAUGHTERS HOUSE).

FISHER PRICE DOLLS HOUSE

IT MAY MEAN YOU SPENDING A LITTLE LONGER LOOKING THROUGH LISTINGS TO FIND WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR BUT IT COULD MEAN YOU SAVE QUITE A BIT OF MONEY.

IF YOU ARE SELLING THESE ITEMS, BE HONEST WITH THE CONDITION AND CLEAN THEM BEFORE LISTING OR POSTING AS I HAVE RECEIVED ITEMS WITH OLD FOOD AND GOD KNOWS WHAT STUCK TO THEM!! AND ALSO ITEMS WHICH HAVE BITS MISSING OR HAVE BEEN GLUED BACK TOGEATHER ONLY FOR THEM TO BREAK AFTER THEY HAVE BEEN PLAYED WITH A COUPLE OF TIMES WHICH IS NOT NICE WHEN GIVING THEM TO A CHILD.  A TOOTHBRUSH IS A GOOD TOOL FOR CLEANING THEM.

IF YOU HAVE FOUND THIS GUIDE HELPFUL, PLEASE RATE IT FOR ME.
